Scott Morse comes to Heroes

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

After trading many emails with all of those involved, we can announce that Scott Morse is coming to HeroesCon.

I think this is special because Scott hasn’t been to an East Coast show in quite some time. And he’s NEVER been to HeroesCon.

So, those who loves Scott’s work should make time to come to the show. June 4-6 in Charlotte, NC. Scott might even be on some panels about Pixar. And I’m sure he’ll create some of that fantastic Live Art he’s known to do.

Anyways, I’ll be back to talk about Heroes in a few more details, but wanted all the Morse fans to hear it sooner than later.

TCAF 2010

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Was awesome. It gets better every year. And THAT is saying something.

As Josh shows, it was a happy place. What follows are a few random thoughts generated the day after a long-ass haul back from the TO. (So, that’s just a disclaimery way of saying, I love you all, but if I forgot to mention you, it’s because my memory is gone.)

First off, what a pleasure it was to travel with Dustin, Matt and Jim. Gave us lots of time to wax philosophical and discuss farts. Or something. These guys are the best, and if you don’t know them or support them, then you should check them out. But if you’re reading this, you’re probably cool, and already know them…

Probably the most exciting new thing I found was Koyama Press. Anne was a treat to meet! I had heard of them before I got there, but to see their books in person was fantastic. Kudos on the DW Award!

Speaking of Josh (above), he’s got some sweet new art stuff happening. I’m excited for him. You do know about his new site, right?

It was grand to see Joey Weiser. His CAVEMEN IN SPACE should be in shops VERY soon! (It looks like it will debut 5/12/10!)

Warnock is always fantastic to see. We hung the most at the afterparty where he shared his son’s Teen Titans sketchbook. (droool.)

Also at the afterP I got to hang with Salgood Sam for a long time. Very interesting. and NICE!

Gina G. was there, too. Hand claps all around for her hard work organizing the panels.

Joe Lambert (Is he one of the hardest working cartoonists?) was at TCAF and started a new sketchbook as well. I helped him try and figure out how to spell Colossus. Both mine and Josh’s attempts were wrong. Of course, Jim got it right. The sketches I saw were OFF THE HOOK.

We had lots of food journeys. The pics are here.

I missed both K&S M&M. We were only a room away, but never saw each other. :(

Did I tell you Jay Stephens made the trip? For me. He made the trip for me. First off, he recognized me. Not sure why I didn’t think he would, but anyways. Second off, he had some new stuff. Yay!

Also, Karl’s Christopher Charles was one of things I promised myself I would get. Promise kept, and boy howdy does it look beautiful.

Andy from Conundrum was a nice neighbor. You always enjoy a show if you can do the hustle and not step on too many toes.

I learned how to pronounce Tom Scioli’s name. Now watch me mis-spell it from here to eternity.

Jim really wanted to check out that EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP flick, so we did that. It was cool in that I hadn’t been to the movies in forever, and then it gave us something to think/talk about afterward.

OK… I guess that’s all I can think of right now. So…

In closing, a BIG, BIG LOVE to Peter, Christopher, Nathalie and all the volunteers who made this TCAF the very best yet.. which is saying something! You all rock!

The Great White North!

Y’all are a-comin’ to TCAF, right?

Only one of the best (if not the best!) festivals dedicated to the funny books on North American soil!

As I’ll proudly state, we’ve been to all but one of them. So, yep, we’ll be there this weekend along with Joshua (Driven by Lemons) Cotter, Jim (Afrodisiac) Rugg, Joey (The Ride Home) Weiser and countless others!

I’m really looking forward to it. Hopefully you can make it out!

Need to stay up on the latest info? Why not follow their twitter feed! And mine!

Oh, and we’ll be announcing our big-ass Fall book, too! ;)
