Hey ya’ll…

STUMPTOWN COMICS FEST IS THIS WEEKEND!  And guess who will be there?  Yep… ME.  And if that’s not a good enough reason to visit this amazing fest, might I present Exhibit A:

Stumptown2013

So as you can see, there is an awesome little block of tables right in the middle of the con (thanks to Neil and Kenan for the map!).  I’m in the good company of Neil Brideau, Jack Bracken, Kenan Rubenstein, Reid Psaltis, our old pal Josh Shalek, and some other new friends!  And as if THAT isn’t enough, I have a couple other amazing comics colleagues tabling at the show: Beth Hetland & Ezra Clayton Daniels!

Wow… this is going to be an epic weekend of indie comics!  If you are anywhere NEAR Portland, you MUST come to the show!  Here are some more reasons why you should attend:

Speaking of Victus:

Tricon Post-Carnage Report

Whew!  Another weekend another convention!

I had a blast at Tricon this past weekend.  I was tabling with my pal Justin Fah and his podcast In This Issue, which happened to be the OFFICIAL podcast for the show.  The folks of Huntington, West Virginia were extremely kind and welcoming to us folks from out of state.  I wanted to thank everyone who came out to the show and said hi!

Tricon-table

At the table, Justin and crew (Piasecki & Bogner) had the ol’ creator corner going, which was awesome.  Basically, they provide you with information pulled from a hat (like a comic book hero, a villain, a plot device, and a setting) and then you come up with a story on the fly.  The prize is your story on the podcast and a sweet print of the In This Issue Poster that I did.  Here is one fan donning the ‘Weapon X’ helmut and telling In This Issue his story:

Tricon-creatorcornerYou really need to hear some of the stories folks cooked up!  To hear all the stories, as well as creator interviews and other convention coverage, you can subscribe to In This Issue on itunes or listen at their website.

We also had some help from this guy:

The next show you can see me at is Stumptown Comics Fest in Portland, OR at the end of this month!  I’ll have more details on that soon.

Here are a couple peeks at Victus:
