so we're gonna see you all at the baltimore comiccon in baltimore this weekend. right...?
that's right--as if you haven't already heard--craig and rico and brian and bill and matt and mike (heywood) and kc and so many more of us will be meeting up at the one and only, always awesome baltimore comiccon this coming weekend, september 27th & 28th! the baltimore show--put on by the lovely and talented marc nathan--is one of craig's an my favorite shows (along with heroescon in charlotte and now the emerald city con in seattle!) and we wouldn't miss it for the world!
oh, and did i mention...we're bringing the girls! sharon and trish and suzanne will be there--and trish is bringing the kids!! and with nick and marianne there as well, well, it's going to be a real family affair!
and this year--though i'm not generally an awards dinner kinda guy (marc nathan has been desperately trying to figure out a way to get me there...) (and this year, he did it!)--we will be attending the harvey awards this year as our pal nick cardy will be picking up a lifetime achievement award for all his amazing work in comics throughout the years! congratulation, nick! it's been too long coming!
so craig and i will be there, signing books, doing sketches--and, while we will have copies of all your favorite PERHAPANAUTS books on hand, we have been promised that we will have the all-new, hot-off-the-presses PERHAPANAUTS 4 available so you can come to the table and sit there and read it right in front of us!!! we will be on hand to answer your questions (after you read PERHAPANAUTS 4, there will be a lot of questions...), help you up (PERHAPANAUTS 4 is guaranteed to floor you!), or just tell you to go away (if you're bothering us...)
we will also be offering--at a very limited supply--the all-new, baltimore comiccon exclusive--CHOOPIE BUTTON!!
bright orange with your favorite choopie giving you the thumbs up, it measures a cool 2 1/2 inches in diameter and features a pin on the back to attach harmlessly to your clothing! supplies are extremely limited and it's a first come-first served basis, so be sure to get to the show to get your own!!
(of course, if they go over well, we'll probably make more...)
