Pikeville Comic-Con!

Here’s a piece of promotional art for next week’s Pikeville (KY) Comic-Con! Should be a great occasion. I’ll be seated next to my friend and Cap’n Catnip collaborator, Tim Fuller. Also in the house will be Gary Kwapisz (artist of many issues of Savage Sword of Conan, among many other credits), whom I haven’t seen in a few years since a Lexington convention. 

Please come if you can! I’ll be selling books, doing my Super-Caricatures and meeting, greeting and chatting. You can’t avoid me; I’ll be seated opposite the TARDIS!

Youngstown – All Americon

I had a great time this past weekend at All AmeriCon in Youngstown, OH. Here’s a glimpse of the goings-on courtesy of The Business Journal of Youngstown. I look forward to returning to this show!

All AmeriCon Draws Super Crowd

Around 4,000 comic fans attended All AmeriCon in the Covelli Centre this past weekend where over 100 vendors sold comic books, art and other pop culture memorabilia.

Super Caricatures!

Here’s a drawing I did last weekend at the terrific Lake Effect Comic Con. I’m often asked if I can do caricatures from photos, and the answer is yes, I do that all the time. If you’d like a drawing of yourself or your kids as a superhero or other fantasy character, drop me a line via e-mail . Also check the Caricatures & Commissions page for more information!

Happy Birthday Jim Broughton!

While continuing to sort through boxes that were packed away after the house flood, I discovered this page from the Dayton Daily News, August 16, 2004, announcing the opening of Comics and Games Emporium — How I got it or why I saved it, I can’t guess, unless it was just my custom at the time to file away articles about any area comic book activity that I stumbled across.
The gentleman in the picture, the owner of the Dayton comics shop, is Jim Broughton, whom I wouldn’t properly meet until a decade later. Jim and I became friends at the bi-monthly ASH Comics and Toy Shows in Indianapolis a few years ago, and until I ran across this newspaper clipping, I never connected him to the comics shop in the story.
I also never did get to Comics and Games Emporium — and apparently I missed my chance — but Jim Broughton, with Dan Taylor, now operate a great store, Jim & Dan’s Comics & Collectibles in West Alexandria, OH, and also host a quarterly comics convention at Wright State University which I enjoy and recommend (the most recent one was this past Sunday!).
Today is also Jim’s birthday, and I wish him a happy one and many more!
