MegaCon ‘08

Let me start with a big thanks to Beth Widera and all of the folks at MegaCon as well as the OC Convention Center for putting on such a great show! It was an awesome experience and I look forward to returning.

Now if you’ll excuse me I need to launch into a bit of ass-kissing… the highlight of the weekend for me was not only getting to meet but hang out with Boom! Studios Editor-In-Chief, MARK WAID (Kingdom Come, Superman: Birthright, Flash, Captain America). I shared a table with Mr. Waid and on Friday in any case sat between him and Joe Quesada… yeah that was my reaction too. Now my interaction with Mr. Waid prior to actually meeting him has always been positive but seeing him interact with his fans as well as other Professionals was very cool. He’s just a genuinely nice guy – I mean seriously people were coming up to have him sign their copies of 52 – all 52 issues and never once did he gripe or complain.
I only regret not bringing my copies of KINGDOM COME for him to sign.

A Special BIG Thanks to all of the people that came by the table and stopped to chat, get a sketch and grab a copy of the book – You’re awesome!
