:: Timeline for Book 5

Good news right around Christmas/Star Wars! I'll be posting a timeline for when I'll release book 5 on the Facebook group really soon. Keep watch over there in the coming days.

Your life is just about to get more awesome.

— Liam Gibbs, who might come through with a promise one day

:: Lookin' a Little Better

Hey, everyone.

I know the colours on the site have been a bit hard to read lately. I've been testing out some new things, but now everything's been a bit more "equalized." I've made the contrast a little less painful, so the legibility should be better now, even if the colours are a bit repetitive over the different pages. If you still have trouble with some sections, let me know and I'll fix it up.

:: CTV Link

The revolution was televised!

For anybody who isn't a part of the social media bonanza I usually ruin for all mankind, I've posted links to my CTV interview from Monday. But, if you're not into that sort of thing, as some people aren't, you can check out the interview at CTV's web site. The running time is 3:52, but you'll be playing the interview back in your minds for days. Enjoy!

— Liam Gibbs, your one and only stop for nightmare fuel...

:: IAGFFA on Your Telie


You just read that right, and you should apologize to your eyes for making them bulge out in amazement. I'll be appearing this Monday, November 13 at 9:20 on #CTV's The Morning Show, where I'll be grilled about the greatest series ever in historical history, In a Galaxy Far, Far AwRy, the upcoming Ottawa Comiccon, and deep subjects such as beef jerky. Maybe.

So don't forget to tune in and watch. Only 5 days until the most blessed day of your life.

— Liam Gibbs, who will shatter your televisions and reasons for living...

:: New BTWF in Comic

Happy Halloween and all that! Hope everyone ate jjjuuusssstttt enough to stay on this side of a food coma.

I'm dropping by just to let you all know there's a new Before They Were Famous story out, and this one's a little something different. I've heard your comments. I know you're asking when IAGFFA is gonna make the jump to a visual comic medium. And, while it hasn't quite yet, I hope this is enough to bridge the gap for now! Check out the newest story in the Freebies section to see how Smithereens and Brick a one-page comic spread!

And don't worry. I've got another BTWF heading to you shortly. But until then, don't forget to catch up with me at Pop Culture Canada in Trenton this 11/11 and then at Ottawa Comiccon this 11/18 and 11/19.

— Liam Gibbs, who's improving his skills at making toast...

:: IAGFFA at OGM Again!

This past weekend with Ottawa Geek Market was amazing. I got to catch up with all of my old expo friends, I had the pleasure of making new ones, I got to hand out some books to new people, and best of all, I had a ton o' fun. The Sci-fi vs. Fantasy theme was amazing, and best of all, sci-fi won out. (Heheheheh, yyeeeeaahhh.) Can't wait for March when OGM puts heroes against villains.

— Liam Gibbs, a definite sci-fi villain...

:: Bustin' Records

I've received word recently that, on Amazon during the week of August 6, 2017, the first In a Galaxy Far, Far AwRy issue, Serial Fiction Sideshow, ranked, for downloaded e-books:

  • #61 in the category of Space Opera
  • #66 in the category of Humour & Satire > General Humour

And, in the past 30 days, it ranked #1,513 in overall downloaded e-books for any category of any ever!

Thanks to everyone who downloaded the book, who told their friends to download the book, and who passed the word along to someone who downloaded the book. You can't believe the high I'm feeling right now that In a Galaxy Far, Far AwRy is ranking on such a major book site. I'm feeling an ecstasy only felt around double Christmas! Hugs and non-awkward kisses to all of you.

— Liam Gibbs, the rank king...wait, that sounded bad...

:: New Interview With Lazy Alien

Just a heads up that, while at The Real Kingston Toy Con this past Sunday, August 13th, I managed to catch the dudes at Lazy Alien Studios while they were perusing the expo, and I got a short and sweet interview. Check out the interview on their newest video at the 14-minute-21-second mark.

— Liam Gibbs, who always has a special place for Kingston in his heart: the right coronary artery

:: New BTWF

I told you it'd happen...and it happened!

Check out the new goods, "That One That Pincushion Is In," by visiting the Freebies section. And let me know what you think!

Got any ideas about who should show up next? Let me know by sending me a quick, sly e-mail.

— Liam Gibbs, and that e-mail had better be sly!

:: Lovin' MCC 2018

Montreal Comiccon was a huge success.

Dropping a note in here to thank everyone for coming out to Montreal Comiccon and supporting the series. The organizers, the visitors, the other exhibitors...everyone brought their A game and it showed! Everybody was impossibly amazing.

And how did IAGFFA do? It broke its previous three-day-event sales record, that's how! Thanks go to my cohorts, Bernie and Colin, for their shenanigans, their help, and especially their undying worship of Kevin Sorbo.

For everyone curious, the photos are already up on the Facebook group. Check 'em out! Clicky right here.

We'll all definitely be there in full gear for 2018.

— Liam Gibbs, who can't wait for MCC 2018

:: OCC 2017

Ottawa Comiccon was a blast, and I survived (just in case you're wondering if I'm still alive). Highlghts? Oh, I can hit you up with some highlights. Get your highlight helmets on cuz here they come.

The quick and dirty: I caught up with tons of amazing people this past weekend and got to meet some new friends. Shared my booth with Val from MomaQuillage. Gave out so many books I almost lost count. Literally because it totalled more than a dozen. Got called a bast*rd by Benoit Chartier via business card, but don't worry cuz I'll get him back. Signed up for Ottawa Comiccon 2017 already and, hopefully, I'll be monkeying at you from a corner booth next year. My tutoree (still don't know if that's a real word) debuted his first issue of Weapon Warriors, which sold a blazing ton. Best of all, I attempted to free-throw an empty drink bottle...and got it in! First attempt.

Cosplay and booth photos will be bouncing at you on the IAGFFA Facebook page, so check back there this week for some mind-boggling displays of art.

— Liam Gibbs, over and out

:: Info on Upcoming Places to Punch Me in the Face

Well, as always, Ottawa Geek Market was an amazing weekend! It was exhausting/amazing. I met so many of you and caught up with all y'all that I wanted to with the exception of one or two. Mykel, get on over to Ottawa ASAP! Much love to everyone I caught up with. Anyway, onward and upward and inward and inside out. Hokey pokey junk and all that. On the table coming up next is Cornwall and Area Pop Event with m'man Colin as backup singer. Look for us on April 21-22 hamming it up in that fair city. After that, Ottawa and Montreal Comiccons, with a bit o' bookstores and Pop Culture Canada mixed in!

On the block now is expanding the audience to warrant issue 5, The Genetic Equation, coming out. Right now I'm weighing my options for cover art and some head shots to fill out the Characters page of this site.

Also coming up, I'll be editing issue 19 and getting that off to my betareaders. Not that you'll see that soon, but...well...hey, maybe you will if things go well!

Be good to each other, say hi, and I'll be back with more awesome news soon.

— Liam Gibbs, your goof du jour

:: Book 4 Coming Along

Ridiculously good news, everyone! And points to anyone who gets the reference I just made!

I'm at the final stage of producing issue 4, Armageddon Trigger Finger! I got the proof copy in the mail the other day and have finished reviewing it. After making some adjustments, all I have to do is review the adjusted copy--which should be done in the next couple days--and voila! We all get issue 4!

I'll wait here for you to uncork the champagne.

I'm also adding a stock-ton of appearances for you at the Appearances page, one of which is a book signing at the Chapters here in Kanata, Ottawa. Come visit me and validate my existence!
