New York Comic Con

I guess I should mention that I'll be appearing next weekend at the 2nd Annual New York Comic Con at the Jacob Javitz center.

I like the idea of having a large convention (such as the NYCC is rapidly becoming) so relatively close to home. I think this convention's stated goal is to become San Diego: East or something like that, meaning it has grand ambitions. This year is make or break for me with this show. Last year was the worst convention I've ever attended. It was a disaster in almost every way. I'm giving it another shot because it was their first year and the response to the show was much greater than the organizers anticipated. But if it sucks again, that's it for me.

I don't know what my signing schedule is but I know I'll be appearing at the DC booth. It's probably a safe bet to say I'll be their w/ either Jamal Igle or w/ Pat Gleason, seeing as they've been my partners in crime lately. I'm also looking forward to a small scale reunion of some of my Kubert school classmates.

I'm out of there relatively early on Saturday to make it home to see my lovely wife and tuck my son into bed, plus I'm anxious to watch Pride's second card from Las Vegas, the aptly titled Second Coming, which runs that night on Pay Per View. You and me, Kenny!

If you're at the convention, please come say hi. If you're a reader of this blog, I've got a special little freebie for you.

Brother, I'm glad you are giving NYC another shot; those conventions can't be easy to organize and it could eventually turn out to be something very cool. Plus you don't want to dissapoint your fans.

Seems they may have learned from past mistakes, they've stopped selling tix for Sat. They may be some available at retailers, such as Jim Haley's Universe. As devotee of Keith Chamagne, I'm not above inter-dimensional travel to score some passes,I just hope its not as crowded as last year.

Hah, just seen your comment on my blog regarding Frank! Yeah I drew my wife with him after I read your story awhile back! You can't see it from the photo, but the piece of paper on the walls says "Champagne Wishes" lol.
