Been away for most of the summer? Current page leaving you scratching your head? Try reading from the beginning of this scene.

Here’s another reminder that I’ll be in Baltimore August 28-29 for the Baltimore Comic Con. This is my last show of the year (at least, I think it is…), so please come out of you can! Galaxion co-creator Wendy… *looks furtively around for her presence, then continues in a whisper* is preparing a cool surprise for us all, so you won’t want to miss it. Also, if you are interested in buying any of the original pages, let me know your preferences in advance and I can be sure to have them on hand at the show. There’s a small selection that have been sold or are otherwise unavailable, but first come first served, of course. :-)

I wasn’t going to talk about Star Pirates (see blog post) again for a while, but I had to share this with you: this past Sunday one of the players hosted a webcomics trivia contest. (Man, I thought I was familiar with a lot of webcomics, but I was boggled for well over half of the answers.) By sheer coincidence, one of the questions was: What’s the full name of the Captain of the Galaxion? Heck, I thought I was a shoe-in for this one– I almost didn’t answer because I thought it would be cheating– but I wasn’t even the first to answer correctly! (I can’t decide whether I should be embarrassed or pleased, but I’m leaning towards the latter. :-) ) What’s more, several of the folks playing– including the one who beat me– were even able to come up with Fusella’s middle name! Do you know her middle name? I thought that was pretty obscure trivia, but this might be another case of me forgetting what all I’ve put in the comic and/or website over the years. Congrats to the pirate who goes by the handle Southern Comfort for being a Galaxion trivia geek (and also fast at the keyboard)!

Aaaand, as long as I’m at it, I might as well throw in the link: if you’re interested in joining our small-but-feisty Galaxion Fleet on Star Pirates, you can go here. I’ll be able to see any new players who’ve signed up via that link, and I’ll be able to send you an invitation to the Fleet. Arrr!
