Since April 8th, I’ve been touring every single weekend (always with my sparring partner Will Torres, and occasionally with William Olmo). I won’t deny it, it’s exhausting. BUT, when you brave rain, distance and fatigue to get to a show like the Phillipsburg Comic Con… You’re rewarded. This show was all about love. I won’t … More RAVISHED BY THE CONS? THE CONVENTION BUSINESS PART N+3
Even with Comic Book Conventions, there’s a Yang to the Yin, light to darkness. In just a month, Will Torres and myself have been featured at three different cons. I described in detail what happened at the Great Philly Expo (here). Then, two weeks later, we were at the Flemington Comic Show, a tiny con in the middle … More STUNNED BY THE CONS? THE CONVENTION BUSINESS PART N+2
This is Tuesday. It’s 7 am and I’m tired. But hey, let’s share my two cents on the comics industry. As everyone knows, every comic book fan, every comic book creator and every retailer, knows better. We all know how to fix things, right? Except… We don’t. Because we’re not in charge. Because there’s a … More FIXING COMICS WITH SIMPLE IDEAS — Part 1
ATTENTION AWESOMENESS ON THE WAY! You liked the new Star Wars trailer? The Celebration Funko toys? Wait. It gets better. My next store signing won’t be at a comic book store. It won’t even be to promote my Intertwined series (well, at least not directly). I’ll be celebrating the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, as … More GAP+STAR WARS+COMICS=HISTORY IN THE MAKING!
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 … More CONNED BY THE CONS? THE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF CONVENTION BUSINESS (PART N+1)
Spring is here and so is the Comic Book Convention season. This year, I’ll be touring A LOT. I decided to join forces with my friend and talented artist Will Torres to create what I dubbed the “Comics Grand Tour”. We’re going to stop at conventions in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York (and even … More THE GRAND TOUR BEGINS!
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 … More DAMN! SPIDER-MAN NOIR IS AN EXPENSIVE COMIC BOOK NOW!
