If you've been tracking the Kickstarter funding progress for Ramone's first comic book (see progress tracker at right), you know we've met and surpassed our pledge goal! This week in the Ramone comic strip series, Harry shares the big news with Ramone...and we get a glimpse at how Harry pitched the story. Over the next few weeks there's going to be a flurry of activity as I create and send out special rewards for the supporters, and get the comic ready to print and deliver. As soon as the book is printed and in-hand, updates will be posted here and at RamoneCologne.thecomicseries.com

Mid-Ohio Con was last Saturday, and Ramone made an appearance and made new fans. It was a great time, where I also got to meet some really talented artists. A couple of highlights of the show: Kids who came to get Ramone Cologne drawings in their sketchbooks; and meeting legendary cartoonist Sergio Aragones, who was incredibly friendly and had some helpful suggestions for promoting Ramone. I also got to paint some watercolors of other characters. That's it for my convention schedule for 2010, and now I'll have some time to start promoting the new book locally. In his first year, Ramone has been to three conventions across Ohio and Indiana. Good times!

This Saturday, the Ramone Cologne comic strip collection, issue 1, will be available at the 30th Anniversary Mid-Ohio Convention in Columbus. Also, the first issue of the new Ramone comic, "A Skunk's Tale" will be on display promoting the soon-to-be published comic debut of Ramone and friends. If you won't be at the Mid-Ohio Con this weekend, you can order the first comic strip collection "This Skunk, This Hamster!" from the online store (see tab at top of this page).
