Sorry for the silence, but we’ve been busy here on the road in Charlotte where everything has been just as cordial and relaxing as expected. And believe me, we’re gathering lots of intelligence on the ground about many things. Oh yes.
Last night was a Drink and Draw at a local pizzeria which found cartoonists from Darwyn Cooke and Tim Sale to Evan Dorkin and Dustin Harbin sitting around on a pleasant North Carolina evening drinking….and drawing. HeroesCon is unique among the regional shows in that you generally know where everyone is at all times — they are either at the show, at dinner, or in the hotel bar. Without a lot of editors from companies here, no one is competing for a drink tab with the result that everyone is just having a good time.
We’ll have a LOT more very soon.
