So O and I were having a discussion revolving around convention disasters, the lovable collections of “That Guy” that can really sour a convention. Sometimes, quite literally due to a sour scent. We might put together a series of “Please don’t be [that guy],” coinciding with our various convention appearances.
But the Booth Barnacle is kind of special. He or she is only really annoying because they cling onto the booth and slow down sales. But they’re clinging onto the booth because they’re a huge fan. So it’s a Catch-22 – the barnacle usually is the most important person to us, but we’re also hella busy during some shows, and we need to be bringing in the cash.
So long story short, O is getting a cyanide tooth so that he doesn’t make anyone feel bad. Me? I’m getting a Bat Signal.
And on the topic of bringing in the cash, here’s the updates on our sale:
Scurvy Dogs: Treasure and Treason is already back from the printers. The first wave will be shipping out Tuesday. If you get your order in before Monday at 3 p.m. EST, it’ll be in the first wave.
There are now less than 15 copies of the uncut sheets of Postumo decks, which are on sale for $40.
And we should be revealing the cover of our first collection, Hello With Cheese: The Cheesen One on Monday. The preorder sale price of $15 lasts until July 4, but feel free to order your copy today.

Four shows and many more years ago we started doing conventions. Here’s where the Scallywags International gang is heading:
June 12-16 – Origins (Columbus, OH): The Scallywags are setting up copies of Scurvy Dogs and Postumo and are ready to game.
June 28-July 1 – ALA (Chicago): The American Library Association has a small artist alley called Graphic Comic Con, and Scallywags will have Dern in Booth 2355. It’s 20 tables packed with some of the best comic talent out there.
July 12-14 – ConnectiCon (Hartford, CT): For the seventh straight year, Dern makes his journey to CTCon. And we just might have a surprise announcement in the works here. Look for us in the OMG.
Aug. 9-11 – Otakon (Baltimore, MD): Also hitting the seventh time in a row, Scallywags International will be at Booth U-06 in the Dealer Room.
Aug. 15-18 – GenCon (Indianapolis, IN): More gaming! Scallywags International will be testing out and showing off some new items, bringing in a special guest, and even hosting a tournament.
Just a head’s up on the shows we’re working on. We fully expect to be at Baltimore Comic-Con. And finally, there’s two mystery shows towards the end of the year that we might add, pending a strong start to the year.
NOTE: While we’ll still be doing the comic, Dern will be taking a break from Conventions in November for Paternity leave.

This is probably the most expected announcement we’ve made in a while – The Monster Numbers, a sequel to The Monster Alphabet, is now currently running as a Kickstarter. Viola:
