Not only did I survive the journey to and from the Pacific Northwest, but I had a great time seeing old friends, drinking at new breweries, and hanging out at my table at Emerald City Comicon.
The folks putting the convention on were some of the most-thoughtful in the business and even had “minions” on the convention room floor bringing water to the exhibitors, watching the tables during bathroom breaks, and in general spreading warmth and cheer. So, a special thanks to Lauren, the minion for my area. She kept us sane and hydrated.
I picked up commissions, sold lots of books, and got the word out about Father Robot. Along the way I made some new friends, destroyed old enemies, and made the world a better place.
My table-neighbor, Eric Lofgren, is a fantastic artist and fun to hang out with. Brian Schirmer is a dangerously-talented creator, and should be feared…
I’ll definitely be back next year.
