Shaenon: It’s rare that Jeff and I get to meet in person, but we’ll both be guests at the Intervention convention in Washington, D.C. this September. We’ll have books! We’ll have merchandise! I’ll be slightly drunk! Come entertain us with your presence!

Channing: The illustration above is perfectly apropos to the character of Channing Writer as he appears in the strip, but it is in no way a good representation of my actual feelings about being invited to an actual honest-to-golly Con as part of the GOH list for the first time in my life. When I started writing Skin Horse with Shaenon, one of my private little goals was that one day, the strip would become popular enough that people would pay me just to come to their conventions. Now that it’s finally happened, let’s just say that I in no way need to be dragged to this thing, because I’m so there.

Anyway, if you’re anywhere near the area, we’d love to see you. At the very least, your registration will help convince the Intervention people that we were a good investment. I want them to get their money’s worth out of me, dangit!
