We had to poop out on last night’s RASL party because..well..we’re only human. Missing out on the chance to hobnob with Jeff Smith, Frank Miller, Colleen Doran, Kazu Kabuishi, Larry Marder, Becky Cloonan, Nikki Cook, Dan Goldman, Josh Dysart, and 100 fans was painful but necessary. At any rate the party was a big success as these photos by Ryan Roman show:
















  1. Held at a beautiful showroom!
    early on, Frank Miller, Coleen Doran, Jeff Smith, and Larry Marder were all talking together. Oh, to have them work on a joint project!
    Ms Doran showed off some beautiful artwork from an upcoming project (!), Mr Marder will be reprinting Beanworld soon (Yay!), and I met lots of interesting people (some who produce comics)!

  2. Yeah… photos without captions are kind of pointless. The only person I recognize, as well, is Miller.

    I remember a few years ago, “The Comics Journal” ran a photo cover featuring Gary Groth and Phoebe Glockner, yet never identified who they were — even on the contents page. And although I’d been collecting and drawing comics since 1967, and was one of the very first subcribers of Groth’s new incarnation of TCJ back in 1976, I’d never met, and hadn’t seen any recent photos of, Groth. Glockner, on the other hand, I could somewhat guess because she was interviewed in the issue. I only found out later it was Groth on the cover because of TCJ message board traffic about the issue.

    In short, one should never assume…

  3. hmm. guess I’m not the only one then… so, in the future, could Everyone in the comics industry please wear those Hello My Name is stickers all the time, and just enlarge them on a copier to make them really really big so we could see your name clearly in all posted photos, hey, thanks! (kidding)
    Hello My Name is Al

  4. The guy with the long curly hair in several photos is Jeff Smith. Man, he’s starting to show his age.

    You got Frank Miller, the guy in the first photo with him is a CBLDF guy, Brownstein.

    Those are the pros I knows.
