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!
