I was at Heroes Con this weekend, just as a patron, and it was probably the best time I've had at a con in a long long time. I met Matt Fraction, Kelly Sue Deconnick, Chip Zdarsky, Matt Wilson, Joe Quinones, Kevin Wada, all superb people that I hope to see again.
That's me and Joe Quinones. Fantastic guy. Another thing I unexpectedly took away was, I want to do what they do. I want to work and work and work and then go to cons and see my work and how it affects people. (Like I legit almost cried when I started trying to tell Kelly Sue Deconnick how much her work means to me. I did not, and I've never been prouder of myself.)
Not to mention I found the first issue of The Wicked + The Divine, which I knew was going to knock my socks off anyway, but something that Kieron Gillen said in the back matter just...energized me. During the hour and a half drive home, I wanted to do something but couldn't because of how dark it was. So instead I sang (awfully) to the radio with my friends, came home, thought about putting things away. Instead I got ready for bed and typed out a few lines for my next comic project.
Now, I'm going to find some breakfast, get a shower, tidy up, and then get to work.
I've got so much to do.
I just posted the 100th page of Wander! It sort of came as a late realization as I was posting a bunch of pages to queue, that I'd passed that milestone. It's a good feeling of course, but not overwhelming. Just a kind of, "Oh neat. One hundred pages. And so many to go!" thought. Maybe if this gets to five hundred I'll feel like celebrating.
Also we'll be at Jay and Eddie's Comic Show in Winston Salem, NC July 19th. It'll be at the Quality Inn near the mall. See you there!

Hey guys! I was at Nerdcon last weekend, and I had such a blast meeting a bunch of great people and letting people know about Wander. If you're here looking for my comic, it's here. If you're looking for my online stores, go here. Thanks for stopping by! If anyone knows of a good con in North Carolina that I should look into, hit up my contact page and let me know about it!
