San Diego Comic Con, Day One

A statuette of Catwoman on the convention floor.

Taking a bit of a break and talking shop with Jake Minor, Kevin Minor, Dennis Barger (Wonderworld Comics, Detroit Fanfare) and Gary Reed (Detroit Fanfare, Caliber Comics, Transfusion).

The view of the convention center and parts of San Diego as seen from our hotel room.

Lunch with Kevin "Pork Chop" Minor, Matt Minor, Jake Minor and a new friend, Basia.

The Weta display for the upcoming film, The Hobbit.

A typical Thursday night at Con. Smoking cigars with Kevin, Jake and Ryan Wilcox. Needless to say, it was a good night.

Most of our first day was filled with seeking out publishers and showing them our goods. The Minor brothers were promoting their own comic book and I was looking for cover work and pushing my comic, Muck Man. The day was filled with some promising leads and I look forward to seeing if and how this will all play out. I had an unexpected interest in Muck Man with one particular publisher, so seized that opportunity to show my comic. Keeping my fingers crossed.

It was good to make the rounds and see so many artists and writers representing Michigan, such as Gary Reed, Dennis Barger, Bill Pulkovski, Alex Buechel, Katie Cook, David Petersen, Jeremy Bastion, and Scott Zambelli to name a few.
