my comic book store is awesome

How a four year old brought me to my knees.

So some good stuff has been happening lately, a few things are in motion and I’ve been feeling pretty good about myself. Getting a little bit of a big head.

Anyway. My boss’s daughter was at the store on wednesday, telling me all about her 4th birthday party on thursday, as we were drawing together on a big sheet of paper. She was drawing monsters, and I asked her if it was cool if I drew some sunhats on said monsters. She seemed okay with it, so I did. She then put her hand on mine, looked at me, and said:

“You don’t know how to draw, do you?

And I came crashing down to earth in about .5 seconds. Oh, and when we finished our drawings and signed them, she informed me that my name was Butt and made me write it. So it was Monsters by Thalia and Butt.

I love that kid.

AYYYYYYYYY comics Tumblr! It is I, Sam “The Hammer” Humphries, and you may know me from my work on LEGENDARY STAR-LORD, or my previous stint taking over this here blog…

Since then I got a (huge) haircut, and I got an awesome cat named El Niño, who I’ll be showing off later. (Does Tumblr like cats?) 

Oh, and at a signing earlier this year, a guy brought me a trading card he made of me (see above). 

But, most crucially, I have a new comic called JONESY with Caitlin Rose Boyle and Mickey Quinn and I’ve got a feeling you’re gonna fall in love. 

IT COMES OUT TOMORROW! SO GET AT YOUR COMIC BOOK STORE FOR A COPY!

Or order it digitally here!

Enough with the introductions! Let’s have some fun.

It’s Sam Humphries and Caitlin Rose Boyle takin’ over your Tumblr Comics channel! Fall in love with our new comic JONESY and stick around to see what’s goin’ on!
