And on the West coast, it’s the Bellingham ComiCon at the Hampton Inn’s Fox Room, with guests Paul Chadwick, Michel Gagne, Brandon Jerwa, and more. Canadian currency accepted for admittance!


  1. A pleasant con, well-run by Eric Burris.

    I sat by two writers, Brandon Jerwa and Eric Trautmann, who have the gift of gab.

    Brandon was an afternoon DJ who used the moniker Vance Astro. Eric bid adieu to a Microsoft paycheck to leap into the freelance comics-writing unknown.

    Their babe-in-Lovecraft-land strip Wide Awake has already drawn movie interest. Sheesh! I particularly like the caffeine-as-monster-repellant angle.
