For awhile now, I’ve been getting requests for a print version of Teachable Moments. A week that goes by without someone asking me about where they can buy a book or a comic collecting all my strips is a rare one. I’ve been a little gunshy about the prospect but… I can finally say, readers have at long last lovingly worn me down.

For the first time ever, you can purchase Teachable Moments as a two part ‘zine experience! Collectively covering a years’ worth of teaching journal comics, each book is 28 pages and is ready for purchase!

Now I know the deal – a lot of people SAY they’d be interested in XY or Z… but when the opportunity comes to buy X or Y or Z, those same people want to wait for a bargain of some kind. Well readers, wait no more because I have a bargain for you!

TEN DOLLARS. TEN OF YOUR AMERICAN DOLLARS GETS YOU THE FOLLOWING:

Teachable Moments: Semester One (Collecting all teacher journal comics from September of 2014 to December of 2014. This collection includes the comics covered by such noted media outlets as National Public Radio and CBS News – Cincinnati!)

Teachable Moments: Semester Two (Collecting all teacher journal comics from January of 2015 to May of 2015. These strips includes comics run in Ohio Schools Magazine and the run of comics about teaching Derf Backderf’s My Friend Dahmer!)

…so that’s a great bargain right? Well wait, it gets better.

If you buy now, you’ll also receive Questions from Readers, a 12 page ‘zine I created exclusively for folks who have been reading my comic on Tumblr and my WordPress blog. Occasionally I’ll ask you all if you have any questions for me and I’ll turn those into comics. I’ve collected the best of those here.

That’s three ‘zines for $10 bucks… but wait, there’s more!

I will also include a mini-doodle on the back of a business card! That’s right, a tiny little doodle… just for you! You can ask me for something small or I’ll just draw you whatever comes into my head. If your name is “Bob” you can have the one I drew in the picture up there, plus another one free of charge.

Please peruse my Etsy store for more details or send your $10 dollars directly through PayPal to chrisalanpearce@gmail.com. I will be sending off the first batch on Monday of next week.

Check out my students’ new ‘zine!

Super excited to be helping my students premiere and promote their latest literary ‘zine effort this weekend at the Gem City Comic Con in Dayton Ohio. Last year we did Sherlock Holmes… this year, we look at Bram Stoker’s Dracula!

The kids did a great job on this one and if you’re in the area, please come and check out our panel, it should be awesome!
