WELCOME!

Here’s the new Safe Havens site design; we hope you enjoy exploring it. The big new feature is having archives that go back to 2001. There’s also a Buy Stuff link where you can have a strip printed on merchandise.  Roger’s Blog is newly revamped; visit him on Sundays to read background details on the previous week’s Safe Havens stories that weren’t covered in the strips themselves.

Dethany in Virtu/Noir

Watch for the upcoming “Dethany in Virtu/Noir” interactive novella for the iPad, in which you and Dethany become sleuths to solve a murder in cyberspace.  I’ll be posting more information about it soon, and for now you can see a sneak preview of it here.

2014 Appearances

I’ve returned from Seattle’s Emerald City Con where I had a marvelous time. I shared a booth with the creators of Skin Horse, Shaenon Garrity and Jeffrey Wells, and Shaenon’s husband Andew Farrago of San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum. I did a sketch of Dethany as Skin Horse’s Unity, which you can see here. I’d like to thank everyone for dropping by. (Oh, to “Matt” who bought seven books from me around noon on Saturday, please contact me at bholbrook1@gmail.com) One of the big highlights of the weekend was the panel covering the history of webcomics with Shaenon, Phil Foglio and Brad Guigar. Everyone had something unique to offer, as we all covered the various business models we’ve tried over the years. As befitting our different audiences we all arrived at different mixes of support. That’s one of the great things about webcomics.

I’m confirmed for my annual Anthrocon visit over the Fourth of July weekend, and my table in the dealer’s room will be right in front of the entrance at the end of row M/N. I’ll debut the 2012 collection of “Kevin & Kell” strips entitled “MOUSCAR.”

Finally, I’m also confirmed for Dragoncon on the weekend of Labor Day. See you there!

Freshly Dethany, Viva Safe Havens and Predator Camp

The current books available from Pencil Rough Productions are two new “Fastrack” and “Safe Havens” collections, and last summer’s “Kevin & Kell” annual. The “Fastrack” book is entitled “Freshly Dethany” and features the entire “On the Fastrack” year of 2010, when our favorite Goth joined the strip. (The book replaces “Dethany, the Corporate Goth” which is now permanently out of print.) The “Safe Havens” book also contains the calendar year of 2010, which was dominated by the cast’s epochal summer in Las Vegas. Its title is “Viva Safe Havens.” Don’t forget that the 2009 “Fastrack” and “Safe Havens” collections are also available.

“Kevin & Kell’s” collection here is on sale here. The book contains every strip from the calendar year of 2011, plus the running commentary provided by Lindesfarne’s Blog as she adds background details to each story. Stephanie Gladden of “Girls of Monster Paradise” has graciously agreed to write the foreword.

Fan art

We have a new feature on the Fastrack site; fan art of Dethany. The first three pieces are by Laura Papera Monticelli, Wapsi Square’s Paul Taylor, and Greg Cravens of The Buckets and Hubris. They’re all fantastic artists, and I’m honored!
