DC Comic Con
I went to the first annual DC Comic Book Convention today. While I confess I was a little disappointed by the lack of people in costumes, there were enough awesome artists there to make up for that.
Mostly I went to see my buddies, the Fillbach Brothers.
See, when I met them in Houston, we were so busy having a good time that I forgot to ask them to sign my copy of Maxwell Strangewell.
So they did. And then some…
Sitting at the table next to the Fillbach Bros, was the Luna Brothers (what gives with all this sibling comic creation?). They were very nice guys, even if they didn’t have cowboy hats.
I was clever enough to look up which artists would be there before I came, so I knew they would be there and I brought my copy of The Sword for them to sign.
One thing I hadn’t prepared for was the lovely and talented cover artist Jo Chen.
She drew (among other things) the cover art for the original storyline of Runaways by Brian K. Vaughn. If you haven’t read it, it’s about a group of teens who discover that their parents are super villains. Without a doubt, Runaways is the freshest thing Marvel has put out in a very long time. If you like YA, comics, and snarky humor, you’ll love this series (if you don’t like those things, um….why are you reading this blog???).
So, as a “Yay, I sold my second book!” present to myself, I bought one of her prints. Ain’t it purdy?
Dear Jo, plz doo mai covers, k thx bye!
