The road beckons

Of course, since the Covid forever-demic, all of my “appearances” have been on the Zoom. If and when we return to “normal” — whatever that will be — I’ll look forward to meeting faces familiar and new. (“Meeting faces” — sounds like something Alastair Deacon would say to Lionel Hardcastle.) In the meantime, below are highlights from past convention and in-stores appearances.

SUPER SHOCK SHOW ’19: I had a blast on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019, at the winter edition of the Super Shock Show at Groovy Graveyard in Asbury Park. Guests at the free event included animator Bob Camp (“Ren and Stimpy”); Weird NJ guys Mark Moran and Mark Sceurman; scream queen Genoveva Rossi (“Bloodmania”); author Steven Farkas; and artists Philip McNulty, Danny Kelly, Raynard Hannah and Brian Petitti. Read all about it, and view photos from the event HERE.

GROOVY GRAVEYARD III: I had a great time on Dec. 16, 2017, at a “Groovy” signing held at Groovy Graveyard in Asbury Park, meetin’ folks and gettin’ in the holiday spirit. See my post (with photos) HERE.

‘Groovy’s’ world-premiere at New York Comic Con

“Groovy” was released on Nov. 21, 2017. But six weeks earlier, TwoMorrows Publishing had 15 copies specially shipped to the New York Comic Con, which was held Oct. 5-8, 2017, at Javits Center in Manhattan. It was the first time the world — myself included — saw the book, so it was kinda excitin’. I was on hand at the TwoMorrows booth (#1038) on that Friday, Saturday and Sunday to scrawl my name on the advance copies. Following are links to my blogs (with lotsa photos) about my three days at the con:
