The First Ever Dave Will Only Make A Penny Sale!

UPDATE (4/5/11): IndyPlanet is back up and running and I just edited all the prices. There's a chance they won't change til tomorrow. So I'm officially saying the sale starts tomorrow (4/6) at 2 PM and will go until the end of next Wedneday (4/13). Remember, you can go now and purchase the variants to support the Red Cross.

UPDATE: IndyPlanet's going thru some maintenance which is preventing me from changing the prices of all the comics. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I'm trying to get an answer from IndyPlanet/Ka-Blam about when it will be fixed and so far I've gotten no answers. But rest assured, as soon as I can edit the prices, I will and the sale will go for a week from that time. However, the prices for the variants are correct and I am donating the profit from those to the Red Cross. So if you planned on purchasing those, you can still do that now! Sorry again!

Starting tomorrow morning and going until midnight on April 2nd, all of the comics I sell on will be marked down considerably. So marked down, that I'm only making ONE PENNY off each issue! You might think that's a stupid thing to do and you're right. But as much as I love money, I also love new readers. So this is where you come in. In addition to banking off this sweet deal yourselves, I urge you to recommend The Great Sandwich Detective to a friend/family member/enemy and tell them to take advantage of this awesome limited time offer. So head over to IndyPlanet tomorrow morning and get yourself or someone else some GSD love!

On the flip side, I'm leaving a couple issues at regular price on purpose. Both the Chicago Comic-Con 2010 Variant cover of Issue #3 and the sketch variant of Issue #5 will remain at their $3.99 cover prices but I will be donating my usual issue profit to the Red Cross to help relief efforts in Japan. So some of that money you saved on Issue #1-5, go spend on those special rare covers and help a good cause. On top of that, if you buy the Issue #5 sketch variant and mail it to me, I will personally draw on it and mail it back to you for free!

So head over to IndyPlanet this week and make me a widely read but financially unstable indie comics creator!

Awesome C2E2!

Hey all! I had an amazing C2E2 weekend. Thank you all for stopping by the table and saying hi and buying stuff. It was a great kick-off to the convention season. I'll upload some pics soon. My next appearance will be April 6th at Limited Edition Comics in Cedar Falls, IA. Looking forward to meeting some new folks! Back to work!

C2E2 Merch Preview: Part 2

I'm gonna have some awesome 11 x 17 prints available at my table. They'll be individually numbered and signed, limited to an edition of twenty. The piece features the cover spread for the next three issues of The Great Sandwich Detective.

I will also have random other prints and original art on sale as well. And I will finally have the Great Sandwich Detective cube-craft paper doll available!

As always, I'll be doing sketches and commissions all weekend. If you'd like to pre-order a commission, feel free to email me.

I guess that's it for now. If any other surprises pop up, I'll be sure to update this week!

C2E2 Merch Preview: Part 1

Hey all, super busy getting ready for C2E2! I'm dropping by to post some pics of some of the stuff I'll have at my Artists Alley table. Just a reminder, I'll be at Table M5 with my good buddy Alejandro Rosado of Sofa Kingdom fame.


I'm bringing back the classic GSD shirt logo but on some new colored shirts! All shirts are 100% cotton and hand-screened by yours truly (with the help of the gentlemen duo of Bob Katovich and Joey Z). Please note that not all colors are available in every size.

Grey shirt with burnt orange sleeves w/ black ink
Sizes Available: Small
I'm also drawing a small doodle on the tag of each one!

* There have already been a lot of inquiries about the softball style shirt. I was only able to procure a small amount of them because that's all that was available from my shirt distributor. I do plan on doing more softball shirts in the future for the Awesomestore. Because they look AWESOME!

Free with every purchase will be one of two Great Sandwich Detective buttons!

At the table I will also have copies of The Great Sandwich Detective #1-5. All issues will be $4 each or $15 for all 5 issues! You also get a free sketch.

Unfortunately, Issue #6 will not be out in time for C2E2. It will be coming out March 30th! Sorry! However, for all you technology lovers, including the people who camped out for the iPad2, I will be selling digital copies of Issue #6 at my table. Bring your tablet, phone, flash drive, etc. and I will load the issue in for only $2! The future!

I will also have new copies of How Stuff Happens #1 for only $1!

Check back in a couple days for a preview of some of my C2E2 prints and a few other special items!
