This is what it looks like when I break down an issue of a comic. I usually work backwards, sometimes--especially at the end of an arc--trying to space out more than one issue at a time, because if I don't, I find I run into pacing issues. Sometimes I run into pacing issues anyway.
If you compare these notes in my bullet journal
to the actual issues, you'll find things change from plan to execution, but I thought it might be interesting or helpful for some of you to see the rubble of the planning process.
I'm headed to NYC at some ungodly hour of the morning tomorrow for NYC Comic Con! I hadn't planned on attending this year, so I don't have a signing schedule or anything. But I was invited to moderate the Emerald City (NBC)
panel (details below) and I could not resist. So now I'm going. At 3:45 am. PLEASE COME TO THE PANEL! We'll be screening the first 40 minutes of the 2-hour pilot, and doing a Q&A with the stars, as well as show runners Shaun Cassidy and David Schulner. And some prizes for good questions. COSPLAYERS: you're gonna wanna see the Cardinal Witches
. For reals.
Speaking of Shaun Cassidy...
Announced Tuesday: Kelly Sue and Shaun Cassidy [Yes, that Shaun Cassidy!] are writing REDLINERS, a show based on True Blood author Charlaine Harris's Small Kingdoms, for NBC! Details here.
If I don't catch you in NYC this time, I'll be back for Festival Albertine
, November 2-6. More details on that one as I have it.
Portlanders: I'll be at the Pantsuits for Hillary fundraiser
on October 13th and I invite you to join me. (Here's
the pantsuit I wore to the Urban League PDX Equal Opportunity Dinner. Join the PDX Urban League right here

OH, and: we have a confirmed, for real, street date for Bitch Planet #9: 11/2/16. Six days before the election. Somehow appropriate.
