Nobody loves their business like comic book people. I just got back from TCAF and the vibe was overwhelmingly positive. I wish I could have spent more time there and talked to more people. As it was I was so weighed down with comic books that I had to either leave or loose an arm. I always hate the idea of going to these things, thinking I'd rather stay home and draw but the energy you get from a really great festivals makes the trip out of my comfort zone more than worth it. It was so nice to see the Top shelf family there! Leigh Walton, Matt Kindt, Jeff Lemire, Nate Powell and I got to meet the incredible Eric Skillman for the first time. If I haven't mentioned it before I can't understate how proud I am to be connected to Top shelf. All incredible people with some of the best books on the shelves.
Also, I got to meet Ben Towle and Box Browne and J.M. Shiveley! I've been such a big fan of all three of these guys for so long that I was incredibly happy to meet them, even if it was only briefly. I took more pictures from my new phone but can't seem to access them but I'll post them later when I figure it out.
Did I mention i bought some comics......?
