Another fun day at the con yesterday, and even less time to describe it, as I have a breakfast meeting in half an hour!
Attended a fun panel about working in comics in the 1970s with Mark Evanier, Steve Skeates, Steve Englehart, Trevor Von Eeden, Elliot Maggin and Marv Wolfman. The capper was an anecdote by Skeates in which he managed to sell the same story plot nine times!
Had a great time talking to Neal Adams about former DC lettering staffer Ira Schnapp, who Neal knew well. That will appear in my blog when I can get to it.
My favorite costume of the day.
Signing at the DC booth with the creative team from FABLES, shown are Steve Leialoha, Mark Buckingham and Andrew Pepoy.
Found Dave Gibbons talking to Mike Mignola.
We had a catch-up talk, and I also introduced him to Scott Hampton. I’ve worked with both since the late 1970s, and they just worked together on a ROCKETEER story, but hadn’t met.
A busy signing for Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez of the wonderful series LOCKE & KEY.
Artist J.H. Williams III with editor Karen Berger.
J.H. signs at the DC booth, his wife Wendy just behind him.
Writer/publisher Richard Starkings with a con sketch of his own of an ELEPHANTMEN character.
Writer Len Wen, always good to see one of my favorite writers and editors from my time on staff at DC.
Another original logo on cover art seen here. I’m thinking about buying this one today.
Finally, my yearly pics of the audience at the FABLES panel. Thanks for coming, everyone!
Afterwards a fun dinner with the “Fables and Friends” group that now needs two long tables at the restaurant, and I didn’t even get to meet everyone.
More tomorrow or perhaps later today.
