Hey, gang. I wanted to talk about a couple of things, the first thing being the newly revised, expanded and embellished Season Two cast page. A handful of new characters have taken their turn in the spotlight since the last iteration, so I thought it was high time for an update. Check it out! You’ll probably learn something about the characters that you didn’t already know.
It’s also time for my long-overdue post regarding HeroesCon, which I attended earlier this month, albeit as an unassuming spectator. It was my first HeroesCon, and I have to say that I really enjoyed the experience. There’s something about the feel of the convention floor that you can’t get anywhere else, especially with such an abundance of artistry on display everywhere you look. Going to a con like this one is not only a chance to see some amazing work up close and personal, but also to connect with some really cool and talented people, not the least of which were Danielle Corsetto of Girls with Slingshots, Chris Flick of Capes & Babes, and the incredible David Malki ! of Wondermark. All of them were great fun to chat with and very encouraging, which drove home an important point for me: I seriously need to be exhibiting at HeroesCon (and other conventions) in 2012.
And so, it’s with this revelation, and with work on the first printed volume of Masked Manor already underway, I can confidently say that if you’re a comic convention fan and you plan to be somewhere on the East Coast at some point in 2012 for a con, odds aren’t too bad that you’ll see me in person at some point next year. That’s the plan, anyway.
I should also take this opportunity to plug an up-and-coming convention organized by a positively industrious friend of mine, Markell Lynch. The event is ConTemporal — a sci-fi / fantasy / steampunk convention that will have its debut in June of 2012 — and it’s already building up tons of steam. I will be there, along with the amazing Phil and Kaja Foglio of Girl Genius fame, as well as several other dignified guests. Check out the ConTemporal website for more information and keep an eye on this one. Looks like 2012 will be a fun year!
