East Coast fans of Chapel, you’re in luck! In two weeks I’ll be exhibiting at MoCCA Fest in New York City, which runs from April 5th and 6th at the Lexington Avenue Armory. I’ll be debuting a new Chapel book which contains seasons 1-4, as well as my new minicomic “Delays Expected.” Come see me, chat, and I’ll draw you a special Chapel doodle!

I think “Very Serious Adult Book” is my favorite subtle gag I’ve ever drawn in the comic.
That is the summary of me reading.

I'm glad this struck a chord with you!

Poetry to me is a waste of time. Give me a proper story any day!

I am sorry Miss Emma, it looks like i will not be able to attend your event at MoCCA this year.

I love poetry! Ooh, and that's a shame. Maybe next year!

I like her makeup and hair in panels 2 and 3!
Miss L.S.P 3/22/14
Thank you! Me too!
 Emma  4/2/14
So cute! I love her outfit in the 2nd and 3rd panels, especially the glasses and hat! I can totally relate to this. (I tried to read 'War and Peace' to impress my English teacher!)

Thank you, I'm so glad you like it!

Coolest comic ever
Hooray for Chapel
Extra hats all the time:-)

Thank you so much!!! I'm glad you like Chapel and the comic - that means a lot to me.

is that an acrostic poem?
Back in my teens I was very serious about which was a decent book and which a one time title.
It's true there's cheap literature out there, but now I understand that reading a book does not necessarily equals intelligence. A book can be also indulgence and fun, and also a matter of taste.
My first comment, by the way, I got hooked on this webcomic by this last weekend :)
Eduardo Cabreado 3/21/14
Yes! That's an important thing to learn. Not every book you read for pleasure has to be a statement about how smart you are! Something that's fun is just as valid as something thought-provoking. And thank you -- I'm glad you like the comic and I hope you keep reading!

Hehe.. Gallifrey Espresso is across the street from Torchwood Nightclub. Nice touches with the background.
I didn't notice the Torchwood Nightclub at first! How clever! Ha ha ha!
Sam Tweedle 3/21/14
Thank you! I was wondering if anyone would get it :)
 Emma  3/22/14
I'm glad I wasn't the only one to notice.
I love how Emma can always insert her fandoms so subtly. ;)
Riv 3/21/14
That's what I try to do! I don't think it's right when fandom references take over an entire storyline, but when they're tucked into the background, they're much more subtle and easy to ignore.
 Emma  3/22/14
Thank you so much! I really didn't think anyone would notice it.
 Emma  3/22/14
Ha ha ha ha ha!

I love this one so much, and I can relate! When I was young I used to line my book shelves with "classics" I had never actually read just in case somebody noticed and would think I were clever.

I've read many of them since then, and not all of them were that good.

For instance, anybody who tells you that "Beautiful Losers" by Leonard Cohen is their all time favorite book probably hasn't actually read it. :P

Chapel acts like me when I was in my twenties....just younger and much more adorable! :D
Sam Tweedle 3/21/14
I'm glad you can relate to this! I think the ideas of what is or isn't a "work of literature" are so ridiculous. Something that tries to be fun and entertaining, and accomplishes it, is JUST as worthy of a work as something that tries to be deep and thought-provoking.
 Emma  3/22/14
I believe that deep and thought provoking as attributes of literature don't have to automatically be separate from fun and entertaining. So often deep is associated with dry and fun is associated with goofy, but it doesn't have to be that way.

check out Emma T Capps new web comic, The League of Fonts THE LEAGUE OF FONTS is where typefaces are born. Every time a font is created in the world, it manifests as a living, breathing, Font – human for all intents and purposes, but unable to age or die unless their typeface falls into disuse. They live together on the League of Fonts, which serves as a secret island hub, bustling corporation, and home. It’s a world full of its own internal intrigues like any office, and Times New Roman is its powerful CEO. He’s got a lot on his plate lately: planning the League’s famous Decennial party, struggling with modern technology, and hiding his embarrassing addiction to the Twilight movies. Times New Roman is confident he can keep everything under control…but what’s an old font to do when a young boy named Louis Pepping accidentally stumbles onto the secrets of the League? Find out every Wednesday!
