I will be at Wondercon 2010 this April 2-4. Come and celebrate Easter with comics, movies, animation, toys and other pop culture fun. You can find me (as illustrated below) in artist alley table 48 where I will have lots of comics, art, prints and other goodies to check out. Looks like I will be sitting between to Alexis Fajardo author of Kid Beowulf (aa 49) and Lark Pien author of Long Tale Kitty (Little Bird Books = aa47) which means I must be one of the cool kids now. Click on the map below to see it enlarged.
ALSO on Friday April 2, 2010 the Cartoon Art Museum, the HERO initiative and Comic Outpost will be having a special tie in event: a benefit auction for comic artist Ed Hannigan. The museum usually has some sort of event, but this one will be extra special. I will be there helping out and I hope you folks can make it as well.
Today, Hannigan is 58 years old and has multiple sclerosis. The Hero Initiative, a charitable organization that provides financial assistance to comic book professionals in need, and Marvel Comics have collaborated on a tribute book, Ed Hannigan: Covered, that features highlights from Hannigan’s artistic career. The Cartoon Art Museum will display some of Hannigan’s most notable covers alongside the cover and complete interior artwork for one of his most famous single-issue stories, The Spectacular Spider-Man #64, which introduced the crime-fighting duo Cloak and Dagger.
Sponsorship for this exhibition has been provided by The Comic Outpost. The Comic Outpost, located on 2381 Ocean Ave. San Francisco, CA has been fulfilling the needs of comic book lovers for well over 15 years. Current owners Gary Buechler and Roger Yan firmly believe their customer service and subscriber program is second to none.

SAVE THE DATE: An auction of original artwork will be held at the Cartoon Art Museum on Friday, April 2, 2010, in conjunction with San Francisco’s WonderCon comics convention.
