Description
Cute girls dig him. He has his own fan club
But he wasn't always this awesome. He used to be Mr. Comic Book, a resident of Lonelyland. So when he swtiched schools, he slapped on a grin and went from big nerd to big shot.
Meet Happyface. This is his journal.
This unique combination of text and fully integrated art follows the journey of a dorky, quiet, artsy kid as he reinvents himself after moving to a new town, where he's nicknamed Happyface. Peek in his journal and see the world through his hilariously self-deprecating eyes as he learns to shed his comic-book-loving, computer-game playing ways. Join him as he makes new friends, tries to hide from his messy past, forgives the people who have hurt him most, and ultimately learns to face the world with a genuine smile.



About the Author
I've spent many years playing and collecting video games, but the series I've always been most passionate about is Ultima. The rich storylines, unique characters, and ethical dilemmas really inspired my imagination. I started writing this guide years ago, mostly for fun and my own personal reference. Over time though it grew into much, much more. I finally completed the first edition of the book in 2007. One of the very first copies was donated for a fundraising auction in support of the UT VideoGame Archive. At that point I was fortunate enough to meet with Richard Garriott (Lord British), Warren Spector, Starr Long, Sheri Graner Ray, Denis Loubet, George Sanger (The Fat Man), and many more gaming legends. It was a long and challenging road to get to this point, but it has been an fantastic experience. My sincere thanks to everyone who's helped me along the way. As for the future, I'd love to continue writing other guides particularly for Sierra On-Line & Sega. Stephen Emond aka: Cmdr Falcon
