The Story So Far...
A long time ago...
July 21, 2017
I told you it'd happen...and it happened!
What am I talking about? A new story in the Before They Were Famous book is here. You can stop holding your breath now.
Check out the new goods, "That One That Pincushion Is In," by visiting the Freebies section. And let me know what you think!
Got any ideas about who should show up next? Let me know by sending me a quick, sly e-mail.
— Liam Gibbs, and that e-mail had better be sly!

Montreal Comiccon was a huge success.
Dropping a note in here to thank everyone for coming out to Montreal Comiccon and supporting the series. The organizers, the visitors, the other exhibitors...everyone brought their A game and it showed! Everybody was impossibly amazing.
And how did IAGFFA do? It broke its previous three-day-event sales record, that's how! Thanks go to my cohorts, Bernie and Colin, for their shenanigans, their help, and especially their undying worship of Kevin Sorbo.
For everyone curious, the photos are already up on the Facebook group. Check 'em out! Clicky right here.
We'll all definitely be there in full gear for 2018.
— Liam Gibbs, who can't wait for MCC 2018

Happy Canada Day and such and such!
The cover for issue 5 is now available for public viewing and ogling. "Where is it, Liam? Where???" You can check it out--please don't attack me--in the Series page. Just scroll down to the issue 5 section and take a quick peek from there.

You heard that right. Read it right. Whichever. Yes, grab the first romp-n-stomp of In a Galaxy Far, Far AwRy for the low, low cost of absolutely free.

Exclusive cover if IAGFFA book 1, Serial Fiction Sideshow coming atcha at Montreal Comiccon.
Yes, I've made a print run of 50 copies of the first book of In a Galaxy Far, Far AwRy with a limited-edition cover, which I'll be handing out at Montreal Comiccon this coming July. How do you snag a copy of this breathtaking piece of art? Buy the run of books 1 to 4, and I'll switch out the regular cover for this moustached, razzle-dazzle cover for no extra charge. Free autographs, free high fives, free hugs, and free sly smiles are still a go at the IAGFFA booth!
For those loyal readers who've already grabbed the set, I'm coming up with ideas about how I can get you prints of the limited-run cover. I'm just trying to figure out what the cheapest options are. But sit tight. More news on this as I wake me the heck up.

Ottawa Comiccon was a blast, and I survived (just in case you're wondering if I'm still alive). Highlghts? Oh, I can hit you up with some highlights. Get your highlight helmets on cuz here they come.
The quick and dirty: I caught up with tons of amazing people this past weekend and got to meet some new friends. Shared my booth with Val from MomaQuillage. Gave out so many books I almost lost count. Literally because it totalled more than a dozen. Got called a bast*rd by Benoit Chartier via business card, but don't worry cuz I'll get him back. Signed up for Ottawa Comiccon 2017 already and, hopefully, I'll be monkeying at you from a corner booth next year. My tutoree (still don't know if that's a real word) debuted his first issue of Weapon Warriors, which sold a blazing ton. Best of all, I attempted to free-throw an empty drink bottle...and got it in! First attempt.
Cosplay and booth photos will be bouncing at you on the IAGFFA Facebook page, so check back there this week for some mind-boggling displays of art.

Well, as always, Ottawa Geek Market was an amazing weekend! It was exhausting/amazing. I met so many of you and caught up with all y'all that I wanted to with the exception of one or two. Mykel, get on over to Ottawa ASAP! Much love to everyone I caught up with. Anyway, onward and upward and inward and inside out. Hokey pokey junk and all that. On the table coming up next is Cornwall and Area Pop Event with m'man Colin as backup singer. Look for us on April 21-22 hamming it up in that fair city. After that, Ottawa and Montreal Comiccons, with a bit o' bookstores and Pop Culture Canada mixed in!
On the block now is expanding the audience to warrant issue 5, The Genetic Equation, coming out. Right now I'm weighing my options for cover art and some head shots to fill out the Characters page of this site.
Also coming up, I'll be editing issue 19 and getting that off to my betareaders. Not that you'll see that soon, but...well...hey, maybe you will if things go well!
Be good to each other, say hi, and I'll be back with more awesome news soon.

Ridiculously good news, everyone! And points to anyone who gets the reference I just made!
I'm at the final stage of producing issue 4, Armageddon Trigger Finger! I got the proof copy in the mail the other day and have finished reviewing it. After making some adjustments, all I have to do is review the adjusted copy--which should be done in the next couple days--and voila! We all get issue 4!
I'll wait here for you to uncork the champagne.
I'm also adding a stock-ton of appearances for you at the Appearances page, one of which is a book signing at the Chapters here in Kanata, Ottawa. Come visit me and validate my existence!
— Liam Gibbs, who regrets looking out-of-proportionately needy with that last sentence but, hey, it's out there

Well, that's a wrap. The new year is coming up and, if I survive Christmas, I'll be seeing all of you in 2017. Thanks, everyone, for an amazing 2016! What's in store for next year? Tons.
The publication of issue 4 is on track for Valentine's. Check this site or the various social media haunts for details or notices. I'll also be returning to Ottawa Geek Market in March/April, CAPE in April, and Montreal ComicCon in July. And the selfie promo (to grab an exclusive lead-in-to-issue-1 story or a chance to win issue 4) is still going strong. But, as always, keep checking for more and more of what's going on.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and see you soon!
