see ya at the NYCC--new york comicon!!

okay...



short but, hopefully, sweet today...

as i mentioned the other day, craig, rico, and i will be at the new york city comicon this weekend at the world-reknowned javitz center in good ol' manhattan! we will be accompanied by the lovely and talented brian mulcahy--official boothboy and manager of sales--and on sunday we will be joined by our pal, scott weinstein!

i will take pictures.

if you are gonna be at the show, please don't hesitate to drop by our table and mention this blog, mostly so i know that more than three people read this thing, but also to pick up a small perhapa-prize, a small perhapa-token of our appreciation...
(the code word is: bedlam)

and so, because i still have stuff to pack--and want to get some rest before the show--and 'cause earl, the office, and 30 rock are gonna be on soon--here is the "random picture of the week" as well as your "five on friday".



1. david bowie is not his real name. he changed it to bowie (after the guy with the cool knife) because it sounded cool. he changed it ‘cause someone else was already using his real name. what is it?

2. a pride of lions, a school of fish, a herd of buffalo, a _________ of whales, a ______________ of crows...

3. for the longest time, the whizzer (marvel-golden age) was celebrated for having the most inane origin story in comics. how did he get his powers?

4. which state has the ten highest mountains in the united states?

5. michael keaton changed his name to keaton (after his favorite silent film star) because someone was already using his real name. what is it?

i'm outta here!
see ya at the show!

1. david bowie is not his real name. he changed it to bowie (after the guy with the cool knife) because it sounded cool. he changed it ‘cause someone else was already using his real name. what is it? David Jones

2. a pride of lions, a school of fish, a herd of buffalo, a pod of whales, a murder of crows...

3. for the longest time, the whizzer (marvel-golden age) was celebrated for having the most inane origin story in comics. how did he get his powers? Umm... didn't he die and get them in the jungle or his dad or mentor got a formula... I know the jungle had something to do with it...

4. which state has the ten highest mountains in the united states? No clue... Colorado?

5. michael keaton changed his name to keaton (after his favorite silent film star) because someone was already using his real name. what is it? Michael Douglas, isn't it?

I had a great time at NYC in no small part because Todd and Craig were kind enough to let me hang out on the Pro side of their table and help spread the love for the 'Haps with the fabulous NYC Con edition of the Choopie Butt Card. It garned a lot of laughs and smiles as well as helped brighten the day on Saturday for two very tired "comicbook widows"

One of the highlights of my show was meeting one of my comic art heroes, Neal Adams, and getting him to laugh when I gave him a Choopie Butt card. I also got to give one to John Cassady who I noticed as he was passing the table and telling a fan that "I'm not really here."
