Greetings loyal BrainFeeders! (yeah, still working on the nicknames)
Welcome to the updated BrainFood Comics Web-Site!
I've made some adjustments, added some goodies (head down to the Titles, Media and Store pages and see for yourself!)

Speaking of the Store page, do not be alarmed!
You will notice that our good friends at 01 Comics (aka Ka-Blam Printing, Indy Planet Online Comic Store, and Comics Monkey Distributors) are having some technical difficulty. Fear not, however, I know we are in good hands and they are working around the clock to battle said difficulties. That being said, it's sadly best not to visit those sites until we say the coast is clear.

But enough of this sorrow! On to more frivolity! We have some excellent shows coming up on both the East and West Coasts. In sunny California we have Eben Burgoon and D. Bethel of "Eben 07" making an appearance for Second Saturday at Big Brother Comics, August 14th at 6pm. Check out the website for more info!

And then across the country we have the debut BrainFood Table at Baltimore Comic Con! August 28th-29th at the Baltimore Convention Center. Featured appearances are yours truly, plus Jeff Cohen and Ben Cohen of Dinoman, and Chris Caravella of the upcoming "Buddy Cops" and "On The Trail With A Curly Tail"!


Keep coming back for more exciting news!!

On that note, have you all purchased your BrainFood edition of
Eben 07's Operation: For Love of Russia? If so, good on ya!If not, what are you WAITING for??!! It is all kinds of awesome, guaranteed!
Not to mention that the BrainFood edition of Operation: Mongoose as well as
the latest collection, Operation: 3-Ring Bound are also going to be available soon!
Annnnd if you just can't get enough of Eben 07's adventures
(and who could blame you)
check out the Full Disclosure Podcast by Mr.'s Burgoon and Bethel, themselves!
And if THAT's not exciting enough, Dinoman's eagerly awaited Issue 2 should
be up and about any day now! It promises to keep getting better and better, folks!
No lie! This title will go down in history as putting other superhero books to SHAME!

Oh...I know what you're thinking. It can't POSSIBLY be any more great news!
Dear reader, I ask you, would good ol' Lauren let you down? To this I say "Nay!"
Last but not least we have an addition to the "Ham & Eggs Side Dishes" family:
"Buddy Cops" following the story of Detective Jack Valentine Jones
before the story arc of Ham & Eggs Volume 1 promises to be a very welcome new branch in the series! Conceptualized and written by our newest BrainFood family member,
Chris Caravella, (everybody say hi to Chris! let's make him feel welcome!)
and illustrated by yours truly. Check out these tasty morsels ;)

Sadly this is all I can show you for now, but it's gonna be good!

That is all for now, dear readers! Can't give away everything just yet!

Stay well, friends
