Hey, I’m going to be at this Wizard World Portland Comic Book Sequential Art Graphic Novel Pictures And Words Telling Stories Convention starting later today and ending on Sunday. THEN THAT’S IT.
I’ll be over at in Artist’s Alley, table 2302.
Here’s a map to locate me:
I’m the red circle in artist’s alley. I’ll be the dude who looks like me, wearing a leather jacket that makes me look like a baby seal.
I’ll have a bunch of stuff I’ve written, a lot of it discounted since I want these books out of my house and into your eyeballs. You can catch up on Glory for only $20, just in time for it to break your heart. I’ve got first prints of Amazing Spider-Man #699.1, Morbius: The Living Vampire #1 & 2. You can also get a FREE copy of Hell Yeah #6 with any purchase of the trade. So, there’s all that.
I’m also on a couple of panels. I think these are the final descriptions:
FRIDAY - 6:00 – 6:45PM HORROR COMICS: SCARE THE $#!+ OUT OF PEOPLE W/ WORDS & PICTURES!
Join writer Jesse Snider (Evil Ernie, Dead Romeo), writer Joe Keatinge (Glory, Morbius: The Living Vampire) and colorist Jeff Balke (Grimm Fairy Tales, John Carpenter’s Asylum) as they discuss the ins the outs of giving people the heebeegeebees without moving pictures and sound! It’s harder than it looks to do it right and these folks will tell you how they each achieved success in the medium. (ROOM C120)
Sunday, February 24CAPTIONS & THOUGHT BALLOONS: WHAT ARE THEY FOR, WHERE DID THE GO?12:30-1:15 PMRoom B119
What happened to the thought balloon, and why have they slowly disappeared? When should a writer use captions? Join writers Kurt Busiek (Astro City, Superman), Joe Keatinge (Glory, Morbius: The Living Vampire), Gail Simone (Batgirl, Birds of Prey) and editor Renee Witterstaetter (She Hulk) as they discuss all this and more. (ROOM B119)
I still use captions, so I dunno what I’ll be talking about here. I guess I’ll turn heel against thought balloons.
Anyway, I hope to see you all there at some point. That’s right, EVERYONE ON THE INTERNET. Hey, but for real, this will likely be my only appearance in Portland this year, so if you want to see me beyond me, y’know, living in town and actually being here all the time, especially at Floating World Comics every. single. Wednesday, stop on by.
