Damn, really do hope there's some type of recap for today's NYCC IDW panel with JB and Walt discussing Kirby's work.

-C!

I'm sure someone will, Charles. Check the comic news sites. Bleedingcool usually sends people to cover it as do other sites. Wish I was there! So jealous of the folks who get to be there and hear two masters of their craft talk about Kirby!

Had planned to be at the panel and signing this weekend, but had to cancel plans at the last minute due to family issues. Maybe next time...

Love the comment from (inker) Keith Champagne on that instagram pic: "So glad to see JB make an appearance. Good on you, Chris. His line today was insane. And justified. Hope he felt the love."

Practically every person who came to get books signed thanked me for coming to the Con. That was a long way from the shuffling, dead eyed zombies who just wanted every book in their longboxes signed.

A fun moment: Walter and I were interviewed by SYFY, and on before us were a couple of actors from THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE. I realized that one of them was Rufus Sewell, whose work I have long enjoyed. So when they were done with their interview I scurried over to say so, "...all the way back to COLD COMFORT FARM."

His face lit up at the mention of this title. "Oh, that's one of my favorites!"

So, a little moment within a little moment.

Nope.

One convention experience that was perhaps aggravated by my long absence was the inability to go more than ten paces without being intercepted by people with varying degrees of demands on my time. (At cons, even the best behaved fans often have no consideration of anybody's time but their own.)

I didn't get to explore the convention at all.

Those are really great smiles! I know there was probably some frustrating moments. But this is really great to see!

Man. I really regret not being able to go.
The panel sounded great and I'm truly happy
you got the "heroes welcome back" to cons.
Even if it were for only this one off
appearance.

Thanks, Brian!

I saw they also did an interview with Syfy Wire, but I
haven't been able to find it.

Looking around the web, I see lots of people had their pictures taken with the Kevin Smith cardboard cutout again.
