Slinging Some Comics in Lakewood

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

Last weekend was Genghis Con in scenic Lakewood, Ohio and I went there to sell some comics and become a millionaire. Above you can see the sweet show space that was on the second floor of an old warehouse called the Lake Erie Building.

My pal Nate McDonough was there…

As were the fellas from Cowboy House. Here we see Fred Frances and Mike Madsen wondering where their cohort Jeff Gibbons wandered off to this time (probably to score some crack in the parking lot).

Here’s me with a sweet old car that was just hanging out there.

And here’s a shot of my table and neighbors. On the Left is Joe Kuth and that’s John Bailey on the right. Talked with both about music for awhile during the show. Nice guys and swell cartoonists too.

Had a good time hanging out at the show and traveling with my pal Eric. So much great artwork and awesome cartoonists in one place. Looking forward to next year’s show!

This morning I hung out at DATV while my friend Matt Brassfield did some video editing for his horror show Baron Von Porkchop’s Terrifying Tales of the Macabre!

Matt talks about werewolves almost every time I see him… which is awesome.

If you’d like to read his thoughts on all manner of subject (including werewolves) visit his fantastic blog Rotten Ink.

Back in April of this year I visited the Warther Museum in Dover,Ohio. The focus of the museum was Ernest “Mooney” Warther’s amazing hand carved trains and tools but also there is his wife Freida’s button collection. There are more than 70,000 of them on display in patterns lining the ceiling and every wall in her “button house” (50,000 of them being unique) and it’s pretty amazing.
If you ever get the chance to visit the museum I highly recommend it. There’s a tree made of pliers!!!

This poster by Derf pretty much says it all. Comic show. Cleveland. The Sunday just after Thanksgiving. Should be fun!
Stop by and say hello! You can also give me money and I’ll give you comics… no pressure though.
For more info check out the show’s website here.

Marvel Hip Hop Variant

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

To celebrate this month being hip hop variant month at Marvel Comics I decided to do this homage to a great hip hop record from my collection. Why did I pick this album, you may ask… well, it’s none of your business.

My buddy Eric Shonborn has a fantastic hip hop variant of his own over at his art blog so be sure to check it out here.
