The highlight this year for me was the signing with Gene Simmons at the Archie booth. Kiss Alive II was the very first album I remember buying as a wee lad and immediately thereafter I was a full-fledged, card-carrying member of the Kiss Army! So, fast forward 30 some odd years later and I'm inking the Archie Meets KISS mini-series and meeting the Demon himself and signing comics together! it was, indeed, a fanboy dream come true for me.
I also had a great time seeing old friends and finding new fans for my books. It's always a tremendous feeling finding a new reader for my books--a feeling that never gets old.
Next stop is Stockton, CA on August 5th at the inaugural "StocktonCon" which is being held at the Alex G. Spanos Center/University of the Pacific. Show hours are from 10-5pm. I am one of the "Guests Of Honor" at the show, thank you very much. Here's the link if you want to check it out... http://stocktoncon.com/
After that I believe my next con will be the Alternative Press Expo (APE) in San Francisco. And there's a new con run by former APE founder, Dan Vado, of Slave Labor Graphics this fall in San Jose as well. More details to follow on that.
