since i was a little kid, i've been all about the fireworks.
at times, i'd say obsessed.
love seein' 'em, but more importantly, love setting them off.
last year, sharon and i were able to go see a great display put on by our local fire department, laying in a field as they shot them overhead. it was great!
last summer, on our way back from a week in cape hatteras with a dozen cousins, my brother and his kids and i stopped at a place in virginia and i stocked up. my nephew helped me pick out the various assortments and, since then, the two of us have been counting the days.
tonight is gonna be freakin' awesome!
so, one of the cooler things that they had at heroescon this year, was our pal scott's after school agent super-secret ashcan edition featuring a sneak peek at the upcoming issue 2! i woulda talked about this here on the blog already, but, stupid me, i forgot to pick one up at the show!! i mean, i'd talked to scott about it a few days before the show and was really eager to see it--i had seen a lot of chris' artwork for it at the new york show--and then i totally forgot to get one!! what an idiot!
fortunately, however, scott was interviewed for a podcast on comic new insider and not only gives you a great run down of what the book is about, but also tells ya where you can go online to order one!! check out scott's interview from charlotte (it's about 51 minutes into the show--about 4/5s of the way in if you're searching)
and if you're interested in ordering a copy, check out;
go get one!
(sorry, scott--can't get the image to load right...)
