A HUGE thank you to all the fans who stopped by the Top Shelf booth at WonderCon! JD Arnold and I busted our butts last weekend setting up, working the show, selling tons of stuff, meeting with the readers and drinking like a couple of sailors on Friday night (so much so that Saturday was 10pm sacktime!). If you haven't been to WC you really should go. It's a miniature version of Comic-Con International and that's a good thing! Much easier to get around, meet the artists and much less stressful all around. I can't recommend this show highly enough for the comics fan or for the comics pro!
I was delighted to meet a few artists/writers I myself am a big fan of! I got a Palookaville Hardcover signed by the incomparable Seth at the D&Q booth. He is one of my top 10 favorites and was a very nice man. Very talkative and approachable with the fans. I also had a great conversation with comics legend, Bill Sienkiewicz. I've been a huge fan of Bill's since the early 80s for Pete's sake so meeting him for the first time at WC was a thrill for me. Another extremely nice man.
Next stop on the con circuit for me might be BIG WOW in San Jose in May. I believe it's the 21-22nd if memory serves. BW was formerly "SuperCon" but had to change their name cuz someone else in FL was using it...legalities, lawyer fees...it was just easier for them to change their name. But I went to the show 2 years back before the name change and the guys running it were top-notch so I'm looking forward to a return.
Then it'll be San Diego Comic-Con! I better start girding my loins now for that one. Sheesh, I'm exhausted already just thinking about it.
Other than that I've been working diligently on several new stories and hopefully we'll be seeing one or more in print very soon.
Alrighty then, gonna watch Justified pretty soon...definitely NOT as good as season 1 but we're gonna hang in there a little longer and hope it hits its groove again soon.
