Fallcon or bust!

While I've got a few minutes, it seems like a good time to mention that I'll be appearing this coming weekend, Saturday and Sunday, at FALLCON in Minnesota. For those keeping score at home, this is my third year in a row attending. I've had a great time the first two years so it makes me wonder what kind of charm the third will be.

This is Fallcon's big 20th anniversary show and it seems like they're blowing the roof off in terms of their guest list. Even Tomasi is making a rare convention appearance for the show which--I believe--has been moved to a bigger venue to accomodate (sp?) the larger crowds they're expecting. And of course, my beloved Minnesota Wrecking Crew will be out in full force and I'm looking forward to catching up with the boys.

Last year, I remember the show being ridiculously hot and humid which seemed ironic, seeing as it's Minnesota in October. I remember Moira showed me the coolest letter ever, a reply she got from Julie Schwartz when she was younger. And how can I forget Lewis (and his hat), who I enjoyed chatting with off and on over the course of the weekend. Who knows what kind of memories this year will bring? Prince Valiant (he better be there)? Mud wrestling (my money is on Mahnke!)? A wedding ceremony (I believe a couple is actually being married after the show on Saturday). I guess you'll have to be there to find out with me!

Seriously, Nick Post puts on a great show. Hope to see you there. I'll update next week with pics and maybe an announcement or two.

Thanks for reading,
Keith

Keith,

I look forward to seeing you at Fallcon again this year. You are an incredibly nice guy and a credit to the industry. And I say that in all respect, not because you gave me a free Starman trade. Which I also loved. See you this weekend. And it should be a lot cooler this year.

Hey, Keith! Yeah, they're moving it into the main convention hall this year, which is a huge two-story building with proper air ventilation and whatnot, plus LOTS of space. I can't wait to see you there again!

By the by, while it was of course a year ago, I did finally get Revolution of the Mask to a publisher... well, kind of. Brain Scan Comics is shifting its focus into releasing comics digitally, so I'll only see the comic in print as a collected edition. Still, I wanted to let you know since you took a look at it last year. Subsequently, despite the fact that it only costs 72 cents, I want to send a copy to you as a gift. Is there some throwaway e-mail I can send the PDF to (since I'm sure you don't want to get deluged by e-mails in a private account)?

Hope you had a good time at FallCon. Thanks again for looking at my comics. I can’t wait to read Ghostbusters: The Other Side.

I'm really bummed I couldn't make it to FallCon this year, but my bachelor party was scheduled for last weekend. I had an awesome time chatting it up with you last year (I was amongst the crew from Iowa that talked to you for several hours on Saturday).

Hopefully I can make it up next year!
