Home again, Home again…
Wrapped up another Toronto Fan Expo last night. This was definitely our craziest show yet. The convention center was PACKED. Apparently they set a record for numbers in attendance this year. They even extended our hours on Saturday to accommodate the poor folks who had already purchased tickets but couldn’t get in for waiting so long. My heart really goes out to everyone stuck in those line ups. I hope you all know how much we appreciate your tenacity.
The best part of convention weekends is always the people and this one was particularly outstanding for me. I got caught up with some old friends and met some awesome new people. (Special shout-out to Alex and the Coven – Woot!) Satisfied my own internal fan-girl by getting Darwyn Cooke to sign my copy of Parker, (Such a great book!) and had a nice chat with Ramon Perez, (if you’re not reading Kukuburi you’re seriously missing out.) Even the long drive was made easier with the company of new friends, Eric (Aardehn) and Annette.
Speaking of awesome old friends: Jim Zubkavich is getting ready for the launch of his big new project, Skullkickers. Coming September 22nd.
“It’s a fantasy action-comedy about two mercenaries who are too stupid to stop and too tough to die.”
Looking forward to that.
I’d best be getting back to the drawing board here, but I will get photos up on the facebook page as soon as I have a minute, and thanks again to everyone who stopped by the table and to our always-excellent neighbours, I think I can speak for Brain as well when I say we’re already looking forward to next year.
