San Diego Comic-Con 2014 Wrap-Up

Well, Comic-Con has come and gone and it was a really great year for me for many reasons. I think next year will be even better, so I can't wait to get back in 2015. As always, there are many people to thank for making Comic-Con a success. Thanks go out to...

  • Dead@17 creator Josh Howard for sharing space at his booth with me again this year. I wouldn't have been there without him.
  • My lady Kate for her tireless assistance and for showing me Old Town!
  • My wonderful Mom for taking care of my pup Sully while I was away. He loves staying at Camp Grandma, but it's great having him back home.
  • Pat Bussey for the great conversation, as always.
  • Brian Fies and Tracy Edmunds for their friendship and support. You guys are my Comic-Con touchstones.
  • Chew artist Rob Guillory for the great conversation (and for dropping some much needed knowledge) over breakfast. It was great finally meeting you, Rob.
  • Jeremy Rutz and the San Diego Comic-Con Unofficial Blog team for inviting us to the party.
  • Daniel Baxter and Tina Alexander (and the rest of the How It Should Have Ended crew) for a great dinner!
  • Babylon 5 producer/director John Copeland for a wonderful conversation about our favorite movies (among other things).
  • Tom Kurzanski for inviting me to be on the TeeFury panel. It was fun!
  • Karen Hallion for saying "yes" to doing an Oddly Normal variant cover for me.
  • Matt Hebb for re-connecting and re-lighting the fire on an old project.
  • Vic Mignogna for saying hello to my booth-mates after I spotted him in the aisle and geeked out over his awesome series Star Trek Continues.
  • Michael "Waffles" Nguyen, my biggest Kickstarter backer, for stopping by and saying hello again.
  • And last, but certainly not least, thanks so much to everyone who stopped by my table to check out my work and say hello. You guys made this my most successful Comic-Con yet in terms of sales and I can't thank you enough.

If I saw you and forgot your name on this list, I do apologize. It was a blur of a week and now it's back to the grindstone to catch up on comic and animation work. Just know that if we interacted at the show, you were a part of what made it great.

See you next year!
