Front cover for the (very, very limited run) ROAD TO HELL minicomic I’ll be making for the summer cons. It’s in keeping with my whole “let’s use a buttload of halftones for mini covers” them, I guess.
The back cover is a surprise!

The climactic finale! Pages 14 and 15 of my ECCC con report comic, ROAD TO HELL. 

This didn’t actually happen, but it was pretty fun to draw, so bear with me.

BONUS CONTENT: due to my misguided comedy-seeking videography skills, I actually have footage of the two “camera kids”.

We also watched “Frasier”, because we were in Seattle.

JUST SO IT DOESN’T SEEM LIKE I’M SETTING UP A ONE-SIDED ARGUMENT AGAINST “SELLING OUT” OR ANYTHING, I heartily acknowledge that, even within my own weird little range of minis, the ones with the simpler, more familiar concepts (Lazer Wolf, Chimbley) are more popular than the more out-there ones (Glitter Gulch, Lazer Wolf II). Epiphany is probably the most out-there thing I’ve done, and that’s fine, but “selling out” or not aside I’m honestly thinking about doing something with a little broader appeal for a web series once it’s finished.
BUT THEN I’ve got this OTHER really weird-ass robot story that I want to tell, too, so I DON’T EVEN KNOW???

LIKE THIS WAS KIND OF JUST IT: It wasn’t necessarily a convention that was TOO mainstream. There were a lot of indie publishers and creators represented, and there weren’t any monster-size media conglomerate booths like at SDCC or NYCC. (Except for Image Comics with their gigantic empty mondo-cube booth. Points off for tastelessness,guys.) It was just that there wasn’t really much of a crowd for indie comics.
Maybe it was because so many people are into the hero stuff now due to movies and games, or maybe because tight economic times force congoers to save their money for stuff they know they’ll like before buying it. However you parse it, it was an oddly tough crowd for such a diverse event.

"Menaced by bronies" isn’t the weirdest thing that’s happened to me at a convention, but it’s probably in the top five.
