I haven't posted much here over the past few months. Most of you know why. The fire, my kidney stone, not really knowing how to truly thank all of you for your absolutely humbling generosity in response to our (comparatively tiny) plight. Please do know that your heartwarming response to all of this has brought me to tears more than once over the past few months. I thank each and every one of you more than I can capably express, and those many of you who answered Mark Evanier's call to replace my fire-damaged books can expect a more personal thank you later this summer.
Anyway, on to why I'm posting here. My lovely wife has suggested quite vociferously that I let any of you who might by actually interested to know where I'll be at various times during comic-Con so you can come by, say hi, get books autographed, the usual. So, okay, here it goes as I know it to be true at this moment. I almost guarantee some things will change before the end of the week.
Now and then at the Bloodfire Studios booth (booth #1621), I will be on hand to sign copies of their new Kindergoth Special which I co-wrote with Bloodfire guru Lee Kohse. It's a fun and funny book, well worth your time. Stop by and check their list to find out when I'll be there, though I do promise to be there at some point all four days of the con.
Here's a peek at the cool cover...
So far nothing firm scheduled, but try me at the Bloodfire or DC booths. I'm certain to be at both during the day.
Okay, so here's the real killer day...
11:15AM (rm. 6BCF) I'll be kibbitzing during Mark Evanier's always-entertaining Quick Draw Panel, this year starring Sergio Aragones, Scott Shaw! and, for the first time, Disney legend and old friend Floyd Norman. You'll hate yourself if you miss it.
11:45AM (rm. 6DE) I'll be watching the Ben 10 panel like every other self-respecting animation fan. I'm not sure if I'll be on the panel or in the audience but, since I've written three upcoming episodes of the series, I'll definitely be there.
3PM (rm. 3) I'll be interviewing my old cohort Doug Moench, who's one of this year's special guests, on his lengthy and storied career. Tales will be told, secrets will be spilled, so be there.
4:45PM (rm. 6BCF) I'll be on the panel for the premiere preview screening of the new FOX series, the Human Target, based on my comic book series. I'll be sharing the stars with Executive Producers Jon Steinberg, Brad Kern, and Peter Johnson, as well as several of the cast members, including stars Mark Valley, Chi McBride and Jackie Earle Haley. We'll be taking your questions after the screening, so please have some ready. I've already seen the pilot and, trust me, it kicks the proverbial tush.
6PM (Autograph Area) I'll be at the FOX table with the aforementioned folks, signing autographs and spreading the good word.
Again, nothing firm so far, but check out the DC and Bloodfire booths as I suggested before.
Anyway, that's the schedule for the moment. If you're going to be at the Con, please track me down and say hi, and let me know you read this here blog.
And, once again, thanks for everything.
