BALTIMORE! Of all America’s major cities, Only the name “Detroit” evokes more crotch-wetting! My entire time at the Baltimore Comic-Con was spent worrying that I might fall prey to race riot, be “Death Proofed” to death in the back of a paddy wagon, or become the latest victim of that wascally stick-up artist Omar! You would think that being surrounded by the world’s greatest heroes would put my mind at ease, but as usual, cosplayer haters gonna cosplayer hate!
That’s all for now, space campers! My thanks to everyone who came by my table (especially the fans!) I’m sorry I couldn’t stay longer, but as soon as I heard someone in the hall whistling “The Farmer in the Dell”, I knew it was time to book it.
Check out this deceptively simple comic strip series by Rich Johnson, Interstellar Overdrive. It has smooth, strong art with notes of Kirby coolness. This oughta tide you over until that next Star Wars movie!
CHICAGO! A town I have visited many times to sell my comics, always to be beaten down by it’s big, windy shoulders! But this was the year I fought back! This was the year I assumed… MY ULTIMATE FORM!!
“Where the fliggity fliggity fuck is Deep Fried?” You ask, using that ersatz hip-hop slang that you know annoys me. Apologies! I have been busy as one of Santa’s elves getting one project after another completed in advance of the Chicago Comic-Con (where I will be this weekend, table E-47… unless Arthur Suydam poaches it!)
That is why I have been “dissing” you on the “content”! (Sorry… I write the headlines first). And what are these other distracting projects? Well, chief among them is this Muppet Weapon Brown arm I’ve been working on for the show:
(Ooo yeah…. CAL’s in for it now!) I’ve also been hump-busting to keep project PEEK! on track, coming up with variant covers and the like, all the while juggling paying work. This has thrown a hunky monkey wrench into my monkey business. Sorry!
Take heart: things will be on track by September. I too want to see what will happen when Beepo and Roadkill finish climbing those stairs. Stay tuned!!
I just began working on my Weapon Brown arm for my appearance at the Chicago Comicon (August 20-23). Fear my foam rubber thunder!! (okay, it looks like cardboard now, but believe me, the arm is going to be quite foamy when it is finished!)
