Alright! Comic Con was super fun, super crowded, and the trip was super short. I also used the word “super” a lot. While checking in at a hotel, for example. That has stopped. I made it to a few awesome panels - a comics creator panel (with Mignola, Morrison, Fraction, Lee, and a few others), a graphic novel panel (with Tomine, Modan, Robinson, plus more), a cartoon voices panel (with Billy West), and a Kevin Smith panel about his next movie, Zack and Miri Make a Porno. We also went to a very funny Penny Arcade Q&A, and a comics podcasting panel, with the ISR b’ys in attendence. I also picked up a couple of new books and got a few autographs. Most folks drew a little picture for me - I’ll have to scan some and post later. I picked up several mini-comics and managed to give away a few of my own, which was awesome. If you’d like to get your paws on one, leave a comment or send me an e-mail and I’ll hook you up. How’s 2 bucks sound? Make it $3 if I have to mail it to you. It is very nicely packaged, and the cover has a lovely texture. 29 pages of new comics in one sweet pamphlet. Here are a few choice pics from the trip! Scott illustrated a book, Chopper Zombie, which launched at the Con. You can pick it up at any fine comics retailer near you. And you should! It looks awesome and gruesome!
