Check out the latest page of Golden Gate Riot, okay? It takes place in front of a vintage clothing store named Channel One. Channel One was actually a real place at 736 The Alameda, San Jose, California, and it really did sell vintage clothes and records. They went out of business years ago, but they also had live shows there when I was a teenager.

Here's a list of bands I saw at Channel One:

The Timeouts
Tsunami Bomb
Shut Up Donny
Creeper Lagoon
The Contrail
Ten in the Swear Jar (some of the members went on to form Xiu Xiu)
The Aislers Set
Bright Eyes (at the time, it was just one crazy dude yelling at his acoustic guitar)
Mates Of State
Concerning Eye
Audio Crush
Spike And Princess

Up today is a new page of Golden Gate Riot for you! This comic features an appearance by the notorious Laffing Sal. She is a spooky mechanical creature that unnerved children at amusement parks all over the country, but she was particularly notorious in San Francisco's Playland At The Beach, which is where this part of the story takes place. Playland was a real amusement park at the western edge of San Francisco at Ocean Beach. Today it is a bunch of condos and a Safeway grocery store. In the War World, Playland closed down, but due to the political instability, it was never torn down the way it was in the Real World.

Here's some videos of Laffing Sal working her stuff. This particular model of Sal is at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, but there's also one at Playland Not-At-The-Beach, a Playland Museum in the east bay.

So first off, check out the latest page of Golden Gate Riot and oh yeah, please buy a copy in the store and tell your friends about it. I have only sold 10 copies of GGR so my self-esteem is kinda low, dudes.

In other news, I ordered copies of both S.F. #1 and S.F. Supplementary File #1 by Ryan Cecil Smith recently and was really jazzed from the moment I got the package. Getting an envelope marked SECRET FILE in the mail gave me a secret nerdy thrill.

I know I promised a blog post of more substance, but instead I spent hours trying to get several different store plugins working until I finally gave up. Turns out a Paypal button is simple and easy, so I ended up going with that!

Please check out the latest page of Golden Gate Riot or buy a copy in the store today!

In other news, I totally failed at 24 Hour Comics Day since I was still totally exhausted from APE 2012, but I drew three and a half pages before I passed out. Failure! Here's the pages of my unfinished comic Squidpunk.
