Bonnie N. Collide, Nine to Five #552

Hi folkses! Bonnie will resume shortly BUT HERE'S SOME NEW NEWS RIGHT NOW: my new webcomic ASSASSIN ROOMMATE will be debuting on Webtoons Tuesday, June 6th and running weekly for the next 6 months, WAHOOOO! Come join me, won't you? 

There’s something both earthy and retro about Monica Gallagher’s style — which is perfectly in keeping with the nature of her brazenly femme heroine, Bonnie N. Collide.

Updated every Tuesday & Thursday!

I too would be pissed if someone hinted at a Game Night and didn't deliver!

BIG SHOUT OUT to everyone from C2E2 this weekend! I had such a blast and will definitely return next year! Chicago + family + comics pals + fun commissions + lovely new faces = one magical convention. Now it's time for me to hide until TCAF and VanCAF - the Canadian DOUBLE THREAT I'll be attending in May!

WHAT HAPPENS when three out of four of the league captains fight? Nothing good!

Also, I think it's fiiiiinally time to start putting in cameos from my lovely Kickstarter backers! The lovely ladies on the ref team with Slam are none other than my dear friends Lauren & Suzanne! (also not the first time I've put Lauren in one of my comics before - check out the eaaarliest pages of Gods & Undergrads to get a glimpse of her there, too!)

I like The Rose Bucket because it sounds like the perfect dive bar - part strong smell, part collection of god knows what inside!

I'm back from NYCC! I have the delightful Con Crud or Con Plague or whatever the cool kids are calling it now ... Con Seasonal Allergies? That one sounds pretty lame. But I had a GREAT time and was so excited to meet familiar faces and greet new faces with my own face! I might be Con Delusional, so please excuse all the ramblings I'm putting here. Sorry for the lateness on this strip, but there'll be another Bonnie this week, just when you least expect it!

Hey everyone!! I'm back from NYCC but stilllll pretty zonked, so Bonnie will be up a wee bit later. In the meantime, if you want to check out some of the commissions I did, I put up most of them on the Instagrams. BIG THANKS to everyone who came by and visited me last week! It was a craaaazy fun hectic weekend, and I'm so glad I got to be there for it! More soon ... zzzzz ....

Timebomb of Fun! This is what I christen anything that has the inevitable potential of being really terrible. It started when my fiancee stuck a suction GPS stand to my car for a road trip that then baked in the sun and fell off, scaring us half to death. I just used it the other day to remark on the structural instability of our parking garage at work. Timebombs of Fun EVERYWHERE!

And just a reminder - THIS WEEKEND I'll be at Baltimore Comic-Con! And it's a three-day show, so if you want commissions I will have time to do them! Either email me beforehand or come by my table at A-234 to get one! (click the map to enlarge)

Kicking off TEAM WEEK, I present to you the first team drafted with readers: The HAMMERIN' HARPIES!

Led by Captain Hattie Hellfire, the Harpies are all spitfire and brimstone. Their motto is "a little bit of sass goes a long way". Eclectic, creative in their plays, and not above distracting people with crazy, unpredictable moves. Go Harpies!

Congrats to all the teammates! (i.e. those lovely skaters who wrote in to tell me their derby stories)

  • Athena
  • Mashes to Ashes
  • Ada Rock
  • Sally Bowels
  • Bex Ed

Harpies, take a bow!

To drag out the fun, I'm going to release these teams one at a time. So come back tomorrow for the next team!

(For those of you who might be confused, I put a call out for any derby skaters out there to be a part of the comic - all it took was submitting their name/attitude/photo. I took all the submissions and found them a spot on one of Bonnie's league's home teams. These are the results! :) )
