Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) announced yesterday that I’ve been invited to be a Guest of Honor along with Alex Ross, at next year’s inaugural festival. Their blurb above gets right to the point, doesn’t it?
As I say in the official press release, posted over on The Beat, I love visiting Chicago. I used to go every year and would see lots and lots of familiar faces, and now I can also look forward to meeting all the kids who have read the color versions from Scholastic. This is going to be fun!
C2E2 will take place April 16th to the 18th, 2010 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
More guest will be announced over the next few weeks, so check the C2E2 website for updates.
Also: Today is Nikola Tesla’s birthday! Go out and raise a glass to the inventor of AC electricity! Or just turn on a light.
If I were Rasl, I’d have a shot, a beer, and a martini!
RASL #5 will be shipping a week from Wednesday.
As Jeff promised last week, here are 4 pages from the new issue. Just before this scene begins, Rasl has a short black out…
Hope you like it!
RASL #5 will be in comic book stores on Wednesday, July 15th.
Hope you’re going to be at a cookout this weekend! I will be.
I can’t believe it’s summer already. I think this must have been one of the busiest Springs I ever had. I drew more comics than I have in years, been involved in a lot of projects, and traveled all over the country. I gave a commencement address and read scripts for the Bone movie. I also read a ton of great comics. I’m going to start blogging about them in the coming weeks.
It’s old news, I know, but next week, I’ll start an On the Road 2009 blog to recap the places and awesome cartoonists that I’ve met and hung out with over the last few months. The photos I have of Craig Thompson flipping through portfolios full of original art for his next project Habibi are worth it alone!
One last thing, I received my copies of RASL no.5 from the printer, so that means they will be in stores on Wed. July 15.
Tom and I will put a preview of the issue on Monday.
Enjoy the long weekend!
