FREDCON is a one-day show up in Fredricksburg VA this weekend. And Atomic Robo's gonna be there! The doors are open from 10am to 7pm Saturday July 15th only. The whole thing goes down at the Spotsylvania Mall. Be there or be, uh, I dunno, somewhere else. It's your life do what feels right. But if you come by, which you obviously should, we'll have some books and prints and a general selection of knicknackery.
See you there!
Consider this your final warning, Hartford. Scott and I will be at Connecticon 2017, July 6 - 9. Don't call it a comeback, we've been here for years! Just not for a few years.
We'll have floppies for Temple of Od, hardcovers of almost everything else, and whatever doodads we can shove into our luggage. Scott has opened up his commission list for the show. All you got to do is PayPal fifty Earth dollars ($50) to firstname.lastname@example.org, tell him what you'd like SINGLE FIGURE ONLY and then come pick it up at the show! We'll be in the Online Media section on the Exhibition Floor with all the other cool internet people.
Been a while since I did one of these. For shame! But, hey, I was writing more comics, so that's a pretty good excuse, right?
DermalAbyss is an ink that reacts to body chemistry. Anyway, long story short, interactive tattoos.
16 Psyche is an unusually iron rich asteroid. Like 10 quintillion dollareedoos rich. Which is, for the record, more wealth than has been produced in all of human history combined. Just another reason to get serious about the Interplanetary Transport Network. Also, y'know, not turning the Earth into hellscape.
WALLABY is a telescope array that was already collecting 15 terabytes per second when it was only one-third finished. The rest of the antennae ought to be installed later this year.
MetaLimbs will turn you into a cyborg! Whoops, too late. I take the perhaps absurd view that we're already cyborgs. Yeah, that's right, all of us. How’s that? Well, we’re not used to thinking of memory, language, or culture as technologies, but they had to be invented and our use of them has vastly expanded the horizons of human ability. But, still, robot arms would be a welcome addition.
Strange Science posts are brought to you by The Best People in the World.
Check it out. You can pre-order a whole bunch of the upcoming Real Science Adventures comics starring The Flying She-Devils and The Sparrow right now. It's true! Just head on down to your favorite local or online shop.
What's next for RSA?
Well, that's a secret. I can say this: it'll be the deepest we've gone into history, it'll be the furthest thing from Atomic Robo we've ever done, and yet it'll be immediately recognizeable as our particular brand of adventure.
Oh, what the hell, they can't fire me. Here's a little something for your eyes too.
Consider this your final warning, Virginia. Scott and I will be making our first appearance at Tidewater Comicon this weekend, May 13th and 14th!
We'll have floppies, hardcovers, and IDW editions of Ring of Fire and Temple of Od! Plus whatever else we can shove into our cars and haul on over. Scott has opened up his commission list for the show. All you got to do is PayPal fifty Earth dollars to email@example.com, tell him what you'd like SINGLE FIGURE ONLY and then come pick it up at the show! Look for us in Artists Alley at Table 819. Here is a map to guide your travels.
And here is the most important part of that map super deluxe ZOOMED UP.
We hope to see you there!
