The National

um, that's the name of the Comic Con i did this weekend. you gotta love the guys that put on this show old friend Mike Carbonaro & his pardner Brian Schutzer.

Mike's a character from WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY back, and kinda got me started in the comic book biz about 20 years ago (but THAT's another story). Brian's cool too, and he picked up something realllllllly special from me this weekend.

this is a throw back con to the old days, and i did it up proper with stacks of art on the table.
too bad there weren't more people to wheel and deal with. i had a very good result at the show and managed to score some great stacks of underground comix, as well as some nice art.

Lena (my daughter) made a killing selling bottled water...and a few of her old books and toys.

scott news

i'm finally getting to finish a book! non comix/graphic novel book!!! yeah, i actually read books without pictures...funny huh??
it's called Infamous Scribblers by Eric Burns. i bought this book almost 2 years ago after seeing the author interviewed by Jon Stewart on the Daily Show.
it's a great book about the origins of American journalism and the history it distorted and or reported in the earliest history of our country.


2009 art schedule is starting to form up!
