Hope all is well in your world. Thanks to everyone for the help on the HERO Christmas auctions, one last drawing to finish! Next year....well that can wait until the fall.
We thought it'd be a good idea to let you in on our Convention Schedule this year and take a look at some upcoming projects.
First up is Megacon, our annual pilgrimage to Orlando. Come by this weekend to say hi to Marsha and me, as well as Jimmy Palmiotti, Miss Amanda Connor, Frank Tieri, Nelson DeCastro, Rev. Dave Johnson and tons more. Beth and Richard put on one of the finest shows of the year so we're happy to be heading back for more.
Next is Boston Comic Con. Here's the spiffy T-Shirt they let me do for them. By Boston I'll be able to announce some big news we've been holding, it should be a hell of a good time ;-) Can't say more, 'cause someone out there would kill me.
Come May, I'll be at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival, one of the great events for creator owned & indie comics on the continent. As some of you may know, Toronto is my hometown, and this makes it all the more special for me.
If you've never gone, come see why it's growing so quickly in size and reputation. I'm lucky enough to be a special guest this year, a humbling position for me amongst greats like Chester Brown, Adrian Tomine, Brian Boswell and Natsume Ono. So many friends and cartooning geniuses are going, I'll just urge you to the site to see the guests.
That's it for shows for now. I'll leave you all with a couple pieces of artwork. The first is my cover for JSA #50. Hope you like the image and the message. The second is a penciled page of...Vigilante? That's right, owlhoot. Vigilante. What the heck could this be for? I'm not telling.
A couple final notes, since I'm here.
My colleagues and I traffic in the nature of heroism, some would say. I just want to take a moment to say that the workers at the Fukishima Power Plant are the bravest people on the face of the planet. May their Gods bless them and keep them.
And more personally, I want to mention the passing of my Aunt Helen. A wonderful woman and loving sister to my Mom. She will be sorely missed.
Best to you all
