19. – 20.3.: Comic Con Linz / AERO / German Book coming soon!

Dear friends and fans of Chicken Wings in Germany, Austria and Europe in general!

I have a couple of announcements!

Comic Con Austria in Linz, 19. – 20. 3.

It’s a bit short notice, but I’ve been invited to the Comic Con in Linz, Austria in ten days! I’ll be sitting at an artists table. So, if you live somewhere close, or happen to pass through, it’d be awesome if you can stop by to pay me a visit! Here are the details:

When: 19.-20. March 2016, Sa. 10:00 – 18:00 Uhr | So. 10:00 – 16:00 Uhr
Where: Designcenter Linz
Website: www.comicconaustria.com

The convention is conveniently timed to coincide with the Nextcomic Festival, which takes place in Linz every year.

Those who come to see me are in for a special treat! I will be presenting our first Chicken Wings book in German!

“Chicken Wings 4 – Goldrausch” Coming Soon!

cw-4-cover-deutsch-270px… really soon! We’ve been wanting to translate and publish our books in German for many, many years now. It is our mother tongue, after all, and people have been asking us about it since the very beginning. Behind the scenes, we’ve been working on it for what feels like forever, but now the stars have finally aligned and the day is at hand! We’ve decided to start with our latest book (Gold Rush) and then work our way back. Or maybe forward at the same time, since book number 5 is in the planning stages as well. Anyway, “Chicken Wings 4 – Goldrausch” is being printed as I type this! We are literally shivering with antici … pation! So, if you make it to Linz, you’ll be able to get your hands on the books on which the ink will barely have been dried!

If you can’t make it to Linz, you can always come to …

Aero Friedrichshafen, 20. – 23. 4.

Where I will also be making an appearance! I’ll be there on Thursday 21. and Friday 22. Most likely, you’ll be able to find me at the Fliegermagazin area again, but I will keep you posted with further details as soon as I know them. Of course, I will also be bringing our new German book there!

Book Cover Contest

Hey there, fellow chicken aviators!

We are in the VERY EARLY planning stages of the next book. A lot will change this time, the printer, the format, some logistical and technical issues behind the scenes will be fixed, but fear not Chuck and Julio will stay the same. But we have come to the first big hurdle:

Roost Air HatOne thing Stef and I can’t agree on at the moment is what will be on the cover of the next book. SHould we do more chickens? less chickens? more planes? less planes? put the Corsair on the cover again which has been suggested before numerous times. We are confused and undecided, and on top of that DIVIDED!

We need you guys as a tie-breaker! So we thought we would turn it into yet another contest/raffle. Write us what you think would be funny, or cool, or awesome on the next cover. We will then raffle off 2 “Roost Air” hats from your entries. Multiple entries are allowed since we want as many ideas as possible.

And we will let you know where the hats go in a week from now on Wednesday the 16th.

Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2015

Vienna ComicCon next weekend!

ViennaComicCon 2015For those with memories as bad as mine, and those who just missed the announcement recently: I will be attending the first ComicCon in Vienna a week from now! Check it out, they even have thrown up an extra page for yours truly!

I will have a table in in the Artist Alley signing and selling books and hopefully talking to some of you guys. Be sure to stop by and say hi! I will also be part of a panel discussion on stage, and have at least one interview scheduled, but I’ll probably be at my table 75% of the time.

The show times are:

Saturday, November 21, 2015: 10:00 – 19:00
Sunday, November 22, 2015: 10:00 – 17:00

So, to quote one of my favorite authors: “Bee there or be a rectangular thynge!” (three bonus points for people who can guess the right book).

And on a different note, I would also like to congratulate Leigh for winning the Corsair Mug raffle! We were happy that we got that many reactions from you all. It’s weird: Sometimes you plan a contest for weeks, paying attention to every little detail etc. and the participation rate is mediocre, and sometimes you just throw a quick idea out there in the spur of the moment, and it totally takes off. Maybe we should do even more flying by the seat of our pants around here than we already do, haha!
