My upcoming convention appearances (fall 2013)

So to anyone that regularly follows this sporadic blog, I apologize. I really had hoped to post a little something each day of Comic-Con 2013 San Diego. I failed. Spilled milk at this point … time to move on.

If you want to see me in person, I will be attending the following conventions this fall (2013).


Central Coast Comic ConAccording to their website, this convention will be “taking over the Ventura County Fairgrounds. We now have four buildings at the fair grounds for C4. Two for panels & workshops, one for gaming and the main vendor and guests hall. 
 New Beginning’s equals new Memories.”

Also in attendance at this show will be old friends Marat Mychaels, Matt Hawkins and Howard Chaykin.

Long Beach Comic HorrorIf the recent attendance at San Diego Con and WonderCon in Anaheim are any indication, this show should be well attended, but not so big that you make yourself crazy.

Attending this show will be old friends and work colleagues Marv Wolfman, Mark Waid, Gene Ha, Barbara Kesel plus the hardest working man in comics Jimmy Palmiotti and his new bride (and my favorite all-around cartoonist) Amanda Conner.

Make your plans to attend now and register at: http://www.longbeachcomiccon.com/

And if you haven’t been keeping up with my comings and goings lately, I’m currently VP at Space Goat Productions. Check out the website at http://www.spacegoatproductions.com

That’s my version of the story,

Klaus Janson in the house … and Ask The DWO!

In response to the little bit of internet love that I gave to Man-Bull in my last (Dec. 8th) Miscellaneous Monday, the one-and-only comics master Klaus Janson found this modest, but fanatic blog and posted the following comment,


Jungle Action #13: Janson's first cover?

Guys-DD#129 was not the first cover I inked at Marvel! I happen to be cleaning out my workspace and came across Jungle Action #13 from January 1975 which has a cover penciled by Gil Kane and inked by me. So that predates the DD cover by a good year or so. Not sure if the Jungle Action cover was the first cover I ever inked but it might be. Good times!

I’ve always been a huge Klaus Janson fan and I’m pleased and humbled that he stumbled across my blog and posted a comment. Thanks for clearing up the erroneous information that I had taken from an unreliable source (Ebay). As they say, Ebay “buyers beware.” Continue reading
