Comic Con 2006

Comic Con went great! Taking a year off after the insanity that was 2004 was a good idea, because the con itself was bigger (they started turning folks away Saturday afternoon) but my personal con felt pretty leisurely. It was also my first time without the Pants crew, so it felt a little lonelier than usual without girlies to hold hands and cling to, but I had a good time meeting tons of new people (including the infamous Judy Hanson! She's great!) and getting reaqquainted with old friends. I'm not complaining.

I didn't really take pictures this year (I left that mostly to Eric) so I'm not gonna do a "report" report because that'd be boring. Even though there were definitely things worth talking about. I'm just saying.



A couple of us after the Flight panel with guests Scott McCloud, Jeff Smith, and Bill Plympton. (Emotion) Eric Wu, Kazu, me, Neil, Reagan, Scott, Derek, Steve, Jeff, and Azad.


Amy with her brand new Owly. Congratulations to Andy Runton on the Eisner! Our other friend at Top Shelf, Aaron Renier won for Best New Talent and I couldn't be more pleased!


A "Death" drawing I did for some guy's Sandman-themed sketchbook.

As for loot, due to a stroke of luck, Neil and I are now the owners of the entire run of First Second graphic novels, including the Fall preview books. Sooo good! I just read "Kampung Boy" the other day by LAT, who's supposed to be the Charles Shultz of Malaysia and it blew me away. Seriously, you can read the first 13 pages online. More LAT, please!!

Anyway here's the mini I did for the con. It's a little sloppy since I was inking and scribbling at the 11th hour, but it turned out pretty okay. The online version also features an extra fold-out I didn't have time to staple on for the con. To those who bought minis, sorry about that!


And again, to everyone who stopped by, bought things, and/or said hi, thank you!
