Girls and boys, it's that time of the year again.

My first Comic-Con was in 1999. It was half the size, a fourth of the attendance, and with way more comics and way less movies. It was the first time I ventured by myself to a foreign country. It was scary, overwhelming and soul-crushing.

It was love at first sight.

So, this will be my 16th Comic-Con in a row. Of course it will be bigger than ever, sweatier than ever, more crowded than ever. Hall H is a distant legend I hear the ancients whisper about, and at my old age I'm very prone to calculating extra weight on the plane before buying that hidden wonder winking at me from that wonderful booth. Scarier, more overwhelming, soul-disintegrating.

It's an ongoing love affair.

This time, once again, I'll have my home base at the Comicraft/Elephantmen booth, #2106 in the Small Press red-carpeted area, just in front of the huge DC booth. I'm still not aware of the signing schedule (hopefully there will be one), but that's the safest bet to find yours truly, should anyone be interested in a fine comic, a nice sketch or a friendly chat. If you mention my DA page, you get a free sketch!

As a bonus this year, you can find me from Thursday to Saturday, from 6 to 7 PM at the Heavy Metal booth, #1529, signing that #275 issue I probably mentioned before, and that special Spanish version called Metal Pesado #1.

So... see you on the other side.

Have a great con!

TLIID 247. Izabel from Saga and marriage equality
Girls and boys, this week at The Line it is Drawn we honor last week's news on marriage equality. Izabel is one of my favorite characters from one of my favorite comics, and she is gay, so, there you go. Really, go read Saga.

UPDATE: Three un-followers in a single day, after posting this one? This could be just a coincidence, of course...

BTW, next week is Comic-Con, so, no update here (but it will be on the CBR site, I'll just probably won't be able to upload it till monday). For those of you attending, please check my Journal to know where to find me there, say hi, get some free sketch, maybe comics.

TLIID 246. Betty and Veronica VS Harley and Ivy
Girls and boys, this week in The Line is is Drawn, it's fight time! Each of this duos is great in my book, so the suggestion of pairing them was a no-brainer. I'm not sure why I went with the movie Harley outfit... oh, well.
