Exclusive TLoT Print + Grishaverse Meet-and-Greets 🌙

Queen @sarakipin​ created a special holiday print (see below with watermark) featuring each of the stories from The Language of Thorns and I’ll be signing them at two Grishaverse meet-and-greets in December! 

All of the details on the events are up on my site. 

If you can’t make it to San Diego or Los Angeles to see me, you can still order signed and personalized books through either store and get the gorgeous limited edition print (signed by me and Sara!) with your TLoT order. Just make sure to place your orders before I appear at Chevalier’s in LA on 12/3 or Mysterious Galaxy in SD on 12/10. (And please direct your questions to the stores! I know very little. About anything. At any time.) 

If you DO make it to the meet-and-greets, I’ll be signing books, taking photos, aaaand I’ll have TLoT enamel pins and Six of Crows playing cards to give away. So come and see me. We’ll eat gingerbread and cast some spells 💜🌙

This is also a good time to tell you guys that I’ll be taking a twitter and tumblr hiatus over the next few months. My twitter will still post news but I won’t be running it or replying to mentions, and my tumblr ask box will be closed. I love getting to chat with you here, but I need to do the deep dive on these new books. I’ll be on IG a bit and I’ll be updating my newsletter when I can. 

See you in 2018, beautiful fiends. I wish you lots of good stories and the best of luck in your work. 

DuckTales -Woo-oo!’ Disney Has Determined a Mid-December DVD Date for the New 2017 Design of ’DuckTales’. Do You Dive In?

Amazon isn’t accepting pre-orders at this time, but shows a 12/12 release date!

Posted by David Lambert 11/17/2017

The high-flying fun begins when Donald Duck reluctantly takes his mischief-making nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie to McDuck Manor, stately home of their rich, reclusive, great-uncle Scrooge McDuck (David Tennant, Doctor Who). Enthralled by the exploits of their once-legendary great-uncle, the triplets and their fearless new friend Webby unwittingly unleash secret totems from Scrooge’s epic past, launching the entire family on a daring, deep-sea quest for the Lost City of Atlantis.

According to info from multiple sources (but not confirmed by info sent directly to us from the studio), Walt Disney Pictures Home Entertainment has scheduled December 12th as a release date for DuckTales - Woo-oo!, the first DVD release of the new 2017 reboot of the classic animated show.

The voice cast includes David Tennant (Doctor Who, Jessica Jones) as “Uncle Scrooge McDuck,” Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Light) as “Louie Duck,” Ben Schwartz (House of Lies) as “Dewey Duck,” Danny Pudi (Community) as “Huey Duck,” Kate Micucci (Scrubs, Raising Hope) as “Webby Vanderquack,” and Tony Anselmo returning from the original show as the voice of “Donald Duck.”

The upcoming DVD has a list price of $14.98 SRP, and MIGHT possibly be exclusive to one retailer over the others…we can’t get concrete information to clarify if this is the case or not (however, one “big box” retailer that previously had the title listed at their website, has lately removed that entry). There’s a listing for DuckTales - Woo-oo! at Amazon.com (see button link below) which confirms the date, but isn’t accepting pre-orders as of this writing. We did manage to find an image of the packaging, however. Check it out below. Our thanks to reader Jason Stephenson for tipping us off about this title.

omg guys, there’s this series of GF shorts named “Shop at Home with Mr. Mystery” which originally aired in November 2015 and is basically a bunch of fake commercials featuring puppet!Stan trying to ged rid of various Mystery Shack junk, and I really regret not watching it sooner because it’s a *freaking treasure*. can’t remember the last time I got this inspired to draw GF shit :D

(Bill and Stan’s phone talk is from this short and this line actually made me freak out for a second because knowing Alex, it’s either a subtle foreshadowing to the finale, or a hint that Bill is still in Stan’s mind :)))

My hand slipped—-but it was torn with what it wanted so it did two designs for him. NieR Automata has taken over my life and I weep for this game. I just had too design a thing for Prompto, but I definitely had a hard time trying to come up with something for his YorHa outfit more than the Resistance one! I like both though, y’all gotta stop me from creating AU’s for this man. It’s not healthy LOL 

get you a musical who can do both
  • Hamilton: I catch a glimpse of the other side. Laurens leads a soldier's chorus on the other side, my son is on the other side! He's with my mother on the other side! Washington is watching from the other side! Teach me how to say goodbye, rise up, rise up, rise up, Eliza... My love, take your time. I'll see you on the other side.
  • also Hamilton: I'm a general! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee!
  • Spring Awakening: All things he ever lived are left behind. All the fears that ever flickered through his mind, all the sadness that he'd come to own.
  • also Spring Awakening: Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla, bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla. Totally fucked
  • Spelling Bee: I think Dad is angry, Mom, and I do not know what to do... I think he takes out on me what he wants to take out on you. Mama, Mama, Mama! How I wish you were home.
  • also Spelling Bee: My unfortunate erection is destroying my perfection
  • Next to Normal: Do you wake up in the morning and need help to lift your head? Do you read obituaries and feel jealous of the dead? It's like living on a cliffside, not knowing when you'll dive. Do you know, do you know what it's like to die alive?
  • also Next to Normal: Valium is my favorite color
  • Dear Evan Hansen: I guess I wanted to believe, 'cause if I just believe, then I don't have to see what's really there. No, I'd rather pretend I'm something better than these broken parts. Pretend I'm something other than this mess that I am, 'cause then I don't have to look at it.
  • also Dear Evan Hansen: iF i sTOP SmOKInG CrACK-
  • Falsettos: What more can I say? How am I to face tomorrow, after being screwed out of today? Tell me what's in store. Yes, I'd beg or steal or borrow if I could hold you for one hour more.
  • also Falsettos: I'm bitching, he's bitching, they're bitching, we're bitching, bitch bitch bitch bitch funny funny funny funny bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch
  • Great Comet: So easy to close off, place the blame outside. Hiding in my room at night, so terrified. All the things I could have been, but I never had the nerve. Life and love I don't deserve!
  • also Great Comet: says the mean old man in his underthings
  • In the Heights: "Alabanza" means to raise this thing to God’s face and to sing, quite literally, “Praise to this.” When she was here, the path was clear. And she was just here! She was just here...
  • also In the Heights: he's packing a stretch limousine
  • Groundhog Day: I thought the only way to better days was through tomorrow, but I know now, I know. Yes, I know now that I know... nothing.
  • also Groundhog Day: suck my balls i'm out
