CONNED BY THE CONS? THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF CONVENTION BUSINESS (PART N+1)

I'll be the first to admit it, this is a controversial title. That said, controversy can lead to great things… sometimes (laughs). In this post, I'm going to talk about my most recent convention experience and put it in perspective with other convention memories that I have. Let's say that nothing's black or white. But … Continue reading CONNED BY THE CONS? THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF CONVENTION BUSINESS (PART N+1)

THE GRAND TOUR BEGINS!

Spring is here and so is the Comic Book Convention season. This year, I'll be touring A LOT.

We're going to stop at conventions in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York (and even … Continue reading THE GRAND TOUR BEGINS!

DAMN! SPIDER-MAN NOIR IS AN EXPENSIVE COMIC BOOK NOW!

This weekend, I was at the Philly Cosplay and Comics show. While it was a small convention, I was happy to go and re-discover Philadelphia, a city I only visited once nearly 25 years ago (and it struck me how familiar the streets looked… Very European design). As often, a lot of people talk to … Continue reading DAMN! SPIDER-MAN NOIR IS AN EXPENSIVE COMIC BOOK NOW!

I JUST BOUGHT MY OWN NAME: IT’S WEIRD

It just took me three years, but I finally went the extra mile and bought the domain name fabricesapolsky.com. It's probably nothing for the whole wide world, but it's a big deal for me. That means that after all those years resisting working with webdesign, I finally decided to embrace it. That's the thing, people. … Continue reading I JUST BOUGHT MY OWN NAME: IT’S WEIRD

INTERTWINED: ENDINGS & BEGINNINGS

The first chapter of the Intertwined series is now closed as we just sent issue #6 off to the printer. This was the easiest-hardest project ever. Challenges were many. But we made it to the end. We completed the first story arc. I'm proud of what we did. And before I address the future of the series, I … Continue reading INTERTWINED: ENDINGS & BEGINNINGS

HAVE YOU SEEN SPIDER-MAN NOIR?

I'm a concerned creator. And I love Spider-Man Noir, a character I co-created for Marvel Comics a decade ago. But these days… He's nowhere to be seen in any comic book. But by a strange trick (fate?), my Instagram and Facebook feeds are full of images of fans cosplaying as Spider-Man Noir! So… Marvel, can … Continue reading HAVE YOU SEEN SPIDER-MAN NOIR?

MARVEL’S FRENCH TOUCH, ANGOULEME AND I

I often said it, I never liked the Angouleme comics Festival. Of course, one could argue that I sold my soul to American comics a long time ago. But that's not the only reason. I have a whole collection of griefs against the city of Angouleme (I may share my worst memories one day), the … Continue reading MARVEL’S FRENCH TOUCH, ANGOULEME AND I
