As always, I saw some of the most incredible cosplay, and I got to chat with a LOT of Ghostheads.
....And thankfully, being on the fourth floor of the hotel, I was also able to take the stairs instead of waiting for the perpetually clogged elevator.
I wish I had been able to explore a little bit more, but that's the price you pay for having a lot of readers in one place. Fair trade.
...I did get, at least, to hang out with the incomparable Wilfredo Torres for a bit. He's got a lot of big things coming up this year, which is good news for fans of great art.
Anyway, it was an exhausting and fun weekend -- but I've just about recovered. And none too soon! I have some more scripts to write... news on that soon.
Meantime, there's a few other things to talk about.....
- First: make sure you pre-order TMNT / GHOSTBUSTERS II: THE STORY WITHOUT A SUBTITLE! Time is running out for that!
It's a five-issue weekly series coming out this November, and it features art by Dan Schoening, Pablo Tunica, Mark Torres, Tadd Galusha, Charles Paul Wilson III, and color from Luis Antonio Delgado!
(Expect the unexpected!!)PREORDER NOW!!! These are the codes you need -- remember, this is a weekly book! Don't miss out on the adventure!
ISSUE 01: SEP170484
ISSUE 02: SEP170489
ISSUE 03: SEP170492
ISSUE 04: SEP170495
ISSUE 05: SEP170498
If you don't have a local comic book store (like me) check out DCBS, GMart, or TFAW -- they can hook you up!
- Second, my good friend Scott McCullar has just launched a Kickstarter for his THRILL SEEKER COMICS. This was his pulp-fueled pastiche that debuted in the Shooting Star Comics Anthology back in 2002 -- the same book that launched my career in comics.
Scott has 128 pages of nazi-punching pulp here, much of which was in the six issue run of the Shooting Star anthology, but some of which is BRAND NEW to this edition. And it's all gone from black and white to glorious color.
Not to mention, one of the stories was guest-written by me.
Scott's almost 1/3 of the way to goal as of this posting... go on over and check out his wares:

- Last bit of business -- I'll be at the MCBA FallCon on Saturday, October 7. I hope to get my brother down there with me to share copies of his first Inner Child collection -- he's kept a daily schedule on that strip for over a YEAR now, and that's no small feat as he also has a full time job and a girlfriend who's always on the go. (Seriously, she marathons like a madwoman.) Come show your support -- or visit the strip at www.innerchildcomic.com!
All right, that should be it. I may have some more news soon -- and when I can share, I'll share it here.
