It’s that time of year again! San Diego Comic Con.  And it’s a zoo. So if you’re hoping to run into someone specific, you better know where to to find them.

Here’s my hand-shaking, book-signing, question-answering schedule as it stands now…

Join Robert Kirkman as he discusses the future of the imprint with his stable of creators, including the creative teams behind Witch Doctor, Thief of Thieves, and more! Expect only AWESOMENESS.

Awesomely – word is that Marvel will be giving out a comic with first previews of several books, including GAMBIT!  So bring stuff you already have of mine for a signing – or just come up and I’ll have this sneak peek jam comic!

There’s even an interview about the book over at Marvel.com and some unlettered preview pages!  Like THESE…

SAN DIEGO COMIC CONIt’s that time of year again!  The biggest comics (and movies, and games, and toys, and television, and merch, and art…) convention in the US, San Diego Comic Con. (If you don’t want my thoughts on the matter, you can skip down to the ‘Business Time’ bit.)  But, I think I now preferr to call it NERDI GRAS as someone brilliantly titled one sub-event.

I used to live in New Orleans, I can’t tell you how accurate that parallel is.  A million out-of-towners descend on a small city and wreak havoc, run up huge bar tabs, dress up in all kinds of crazy costumes, while strangers try to give everyone a bunch of trinkets, ephemera, and promotional items that 90% of people will throw out within a month.  IT’S GREAT!

I’m tempted to say the only major difference is there is less debauchery and nudity at Comic Con, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I’m just not going to the right events and after-parties.

In the words of Flight of the Conchords, ‘It’s Business Time’

If you’re looking for me at Comic Con, I only guarantee one appearance – I’ll be SIGNING AT MARVEL’S BOOTH on THURS 7/21 from 6-7pm & SAT 7/23 from 5-6PM.   Please come by and say hello and get something signed!  Other than that, I’ll be seeing panels for my own entertainment & edification, shopping, and stalking Alan Davis & Mike Allred.

I’ll also be glad-handing a few editors to try and find a home for the new project I teased in the last post.  The book’s working title is THE LIFE & END TIMES of BRAHM & BEN, a collaboration with friend & writer JIM FESTANTE and fantastic (German!) artist named REMUS BREZEANU.  Among other developments, I’ve reformatted the first few pages into something I’m really tickled with:

I have loved those fire, brimstone, and damnation mini comics that conservative evangelicals hand out.*  (CHICK Tracts, if you’re not familiar.)  I have wanted to re-purpose their aesthetic for a long time, and this is the perfect project to do it.  Now, this project was/is designed as a standard comic.  But 85% of our first 7 pages fit pretty perfectly into this format, so I thought it’s worth trying to catch attention.   If nothing else, I know my editor Jordan White will get a kick out it.  He’s had his own fascination w/ them.

But if you’re going – let me know!  TWITTER ME any fun stuff or good meet-up opportunities.  And I hope you all have a safe, fun, and sexxxy NERDI GRAS.

*  *  *  *  *

*To clarify, this is not intended as a mockery of Christianity.  Just of these absolutely terrifying comics that people hand to young, unsuspecting children at parades.  (As was my introduction at around 7 years old.) To be fair, I was raised Catholic (which they equate with Masonry and devil worship).
