Well, we’re back again (it always sounds weird to me to say “Lovecraft is Missing returns,” so I won’t). Hopefully. there will be no more interruptions until this issue (#5) is completed. That won’t be for awhile yet, maybe not until next Spring.
On the newsy news side, I want to remind everyone about Necornomicon, Aug. 22-25, in Providence, RI. I’ll be there, as will hundreds of Lovecraft enthusiasts, from fans to scholars. I’ll be on one panel and otherwise just be milling about the convention floor. If you see me, say hi.
Although most of you speak and read English, I’m happy to announce that LIM is being translated into Portuguese, to be hosted on a website with a number of other outstanding comics, including my favorite, The Secret Knots by Juan Santapau. I’ll give you the website once everything is finalized. In the meantime, you can brush up on your Portuguese.
Something I want to call to your attention is Plan 28, a project to raise money to build a full size, working model of Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine, the first computer, developed in…..1837, a little over one hundred years before the first modern computers were built. Babage had trouble with funding and was never able to complete it, but he did start. Ada Byron,Countess of Lovelace, wrote the first computer programs ever. How cool is that?
It’s also time to start voting for LIM again at Top Web Comics. You can legally vote once a day for the monthly contest, which helps keep LIM in the public eye. You can also find us on Facebook, where I hope to get more regular posts going up.
Have a good weekend.
