Appearing at… for the next two weeks—come see me!

The next two weekends will see me staying busy at some local comic shows, so make your plans now to come out, have some fun, do some geeky stuff, see me and talk about comics!

This weekend, Sunday, Nov 13, I’ll be one of several guests at the Daytona Beach Comic Con. Also there you’ll find my pals Jeff Whiting (who’s running a kickstarter: go support him here: Shanghai-Breathing Fire) and John Crowther (who will be joined by artist Dell Barras and promoting their kickstarter. Go pledge to it here: Nikolai). The Riley and Kimmy show will be there talking about all things geek (maybe I can twist his arm to talk to me again?). If you’re not listening to the show, what’s your excuse? Listen here! There will be others there, too, so plan to go!

You can “join” the event at this link: https://www.facebook.com/events/244038252638629/

Or you can simply “like” the event at this one: https://www.facebook.com/Daytona-Beach-Comic-Book-Convention-109085789161874/

Do both and I’ll see you Sunday!

Me talking with Patrick of the Riley and Kimmy show at the last Daytona Beach Comic Con:

Then, next week, I’ve got two separate events; so if you can’t make it to one you can make it to the other. On Saturday, Nov 19, I’ll be at SmashCon in Sanford, Florida. It will be my first time there, but this will be the 8th year for the show. I’m excited to be a part of the show as the proceeds (some? All? Not really sure about the specifics) go to benefit Toys for Tots. Also there will be comic legend and superstar (as well as one of my all-time personal favs!) George Perez!

And then the very next day, Sunday, Nov 20, I’ll be a guest at Clermont Comic Con. The Clermont show has also been around for a while, but this will be my first time there, too. The exciting thing about this show is there is a whole bunch of comic book makers there: George Perez, Chuck Dixon, John Crowther, Karl Moline, Pat Broderick and a host of others. You can find the link here: Clermont Comic Con!

I’ll have my books with me that you can pick up—they make GREAT Christmas gifts, and now is the time to start doing your Christmas shopping. Autographs are free from me at all of these events! If you’ve already got something I wrote, you can bring that for an autograph, too! Either way, get your geek on and come see me!

Looking Ahead at 2016

Okay, I know this is about 14 days behind…but hopefully we’re all looking forward to a great year. I know I am, even if this post isn’t out the first week of January.

I’m still filling in the calendar for convention appearances this year, but so far I’m slated for these shows:

March 20th: Daytona Beach Comic Convention. This one day show is close to the beach, to the Daytona race track, and is on the campus at Embry Riddle. If you like comics, THIS is the show to attend. The last two shows I did here had more comic dealers than any of the “biggers” shows I attended all last year! I’ll be there, so come see me!

April 30-May 1: Lebanon MEGA Con. In Lebanon, Missouri, this is not only the debut of a new annual convention, but it’ll be my first ever appearance in the Show Me state! There’s also a bunch of wrestling guests slated to show up as well as comic artist Val Mayerik! So, for all my Missouri peeps, come out and see me! Lots of fun to be had.

May 26-29: MegaCon in Orlando, FL. This will be my sixth MegaCon, probably the show I’ve done more than any other single show except CoastCon in Biloxi, MS. The first time I did MegaCon was in 1998, then not again until 2012…and every year since. I notice their guest list isn’t updated, but I’ll be back in Artist Alley this year, hopefully beside my pals Barry and Jenny Gregory (maybe Thomas Florimonte?) and Wes Locher. It’s a four day show this year, so make your plans now!

Aug 5-7: WizardWorld Orlando. Yep. You read that right. WizardWorld is coming to Orlando this year…and I’m excited. You already know that I’ve done several Wizard shows and my thoughts on this extremely professionally run show! This is a great thing for Orlando. I expect this guest list to continue to grow—I mean, who doesn’t want to come to Orlando, right?

Nov 20: Clermont (FL) Comic Con. Not sure how long this one has been going, but I heard great things about the ’15 version of it, and so I’m very happy to have been added to the guest list for the ’16 show. All of you central Florida folks who want to avoid the mega shows should check out this one! I’ll see you there!

Creatively, there are a couple of projects that are moving forward that I’m pretty excited about. The first—and we’re planning for it to be available by MegaCon in May, is TINY, a re-telling of the Thumbelina fairy tale by me and newcomer artist Deonna Herrold. Check out some of her fantastic work here. Also, here’s a sneak peek at one of her pages. I’ll be posting more as we get closer. I gotta say this: it’s looking GREAT!

A second project that’s going to happen is one with my pal and artist extraordinaire, Dean Zachary. I’m sure most of you comic folks know who Dean is already—which is why I’m so excited to be working with him. No art for this one—that I can show you—just yet. But you’ll have to trust me on this one…WOW!
