How to Deal With the Skyler Page Fiasco

I’ve only seen a few people say this, so I’m going to say it too.

Ready? Ok.

Don’t boycott Clarence.

Don’t boycott Clarence.

Don’t boycott Clarence

DON’T BOYCOTT CLARENCE

Don’t do that

The cast and crew of Clarence should not be punished because of what Skyler Page did. And, yes, I know Clarence is his show, but guess what? Skyler Page had almost fucking nothing to do with Clarence’s success. This amazing show was built from just his simple idea. The talented writers and artists made Clarence what it is now.

Boycotting Clarence to get it cancelled is not the solution. That is not the best thing to do. You would be affecting the writers, the artists, the animators, the voice actors, everyone. Not just Skyler Page.

INSTEAD PUSH TO REMOVE SKYLAR PAGE FROM THE SHOW AND ANY OTHER CN PRODUCTIONS.

Thank you so much for reading this and I hope you deal with the Skyler Page Fiasco appropiately.

Hi! I’m incredibly fucking happy to tell you that Emily Partridge (tumblr) and I are making a story in Vertigo Quarterly: Magenta of the CMYK series! Emily’s work has floored me for a long time, with its grime and observation-informed, weighty, dimensional cartooniness. I get so much pleasure out of her drawings & comics. I’m really glad she said yes.

I named the story “Gem Pockets” and that’s all I’ll say for now. I plan to show some character sketches by Emily on my readings on tour. Thanks to editor Greg Lockard for inviting me back for another Vertigo anthology! Solicitations are here, at the way bottom.

Also, more news on this later – I’ll be doing as part of my tour, a talk on collaboration as part of Word Balloon Academy, the Friday-before-TCAF creative development workshops. Whee!
