HeroesCon!

aw yeah, it's this weekend in Charlotte NC!  ill be at AA-742, treading water in a sea of serious talent.  Rico, Creative Director of HeroesCon, got Jaime Hernandez, the greatest cartoonist of all time, to come.  Jaime, with bros Gilbert and sometimes Mario, write and draw Love and Rockets, which if you haven't heard of, dear god, get it together. everyone, including non-comic reading muggles, gotta read "The Love Bunglers". to really blow your skull out, start first with "WigWamBam", which in the single issues runs concurrently with my fav Gilbert story "X".  that's my L+R recipe, but ask around, everyone's got a different one, which only underlines what a masterpiece it is.

 here's a drawing of Canonball Sam, who's probably only cool to people who were kids when he was around, like Van Halen.  but, as the saying goes, the golden age of comics is 12, and i love the New Mutants.
besides being too un-caffeinated to draw legs, i also drew Sam because people want the super-heroes, and i want to draw Loose Ends, and Sam is someone who i locked in on early to figure out Sonny (L.E. dude). it's a one-for-you, one-for-me, but all-in-one.  for those who do want copies of Loose Ends but can't find em all, it's writer Jason Latour and i will both have em at HeroesCon, and will draw all over the black-and-white copies like we're vandalizing your yearbook.
