Stumptown 2012

It’s been real, Spring Convention Season. You tried to take me away from my wife and child nearly every weekend for the last two months. You mostly succeeded. I leave you now, more machine than man. Twisted and evil.

But in a good way!

Stumptown capped it all off, and it was a good ending note. Visits from wife and baby, a Dear Creature reading at Comics Underground with Dylan Meconis, meeting Michael Allred and listening to his family band, The Gear…I was even honored to pick up a couple Stumptown awards for Best New Talent (Dear Creature and Green River Killer), and Best Artist (Green River Killer). And they’re the cutest awards. Just look!

 

Monsters are always the answer, and I’m glad the Stumptown committee knows that.

I put a ton of stuff out on my table, books-wise, and it hit me that it’s all come out pretty much in the last six months. Dear Creature, Green River Killer, House of Night, Dark Horse Presents (The Creep).  It was kind of surprising to see it all in one place— and there’s more to come this weekend, for Free Comic Book Day! If I tweeted more, people would know that they should be sick of me by now. As it is, my lack of consistent tweeting is all that keeps me in people’s good graces.

Big thanks to everyone involved in this crazy Spring Convention Season. It was great, but I’m all out of words now.

Nite nite.
