NOTE! DC Area: Awesome Con, April 20-21

April 17, 2013

Just a note that this coming weekend (Apr 20-21) I’ll be appearing at AwesomeCon to be held in the Washington DC Convention Center. Come meet actors Phil LaMarr (MAD TV), Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters), Nicholas Brendon (Buffy:Vampire Slayer), and the only guy I’d compare to Mel Blanc, voice actor Billy West (Ren & Stimpy/Futurama).

Comic legend Herb Trimpe (Wolverine/Hulk/GI Joe) will be there, and the writer of my current series… I think his name is Larry Hama. Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night), Greg LaRocque (Flash), Steve Conley (Bloop/Star Trek), and Carolyn Belefski (Curls) will  all be there showing off art work that makes me consider other occupations. Some schmuck named Nick Galifianakis (who’s done a few cartoons for something called a “newspaper”) will be there, but apparently he’s better known for his School of Dating— that’s just what I hear.

There’s going to be panels on zombie apocalypse survival (always go with the machete= silent & reusable), the rivalry between Star Trek & Star Wars (geekfest alert), sci-fi speed dating (warning: watch out for Pon Farr symptoms), seminars on cosplay costume design, a Dr. Sketchy drawing session, movie screenings, and more. I’ll personally be sitting in on a G.I.Joe panel with Hama and Trimpe… oh, I won’t be saying anything, I’m just there to bring them bottled water. This is your big chance to get all your Joe questions answered!

Don’t worry, there’s tons for the kids to do with the great John Gallagher (Buzzboy) setting up his famous Comic Diner booth with drawing lessons and art supplies for the lil’ ones. Plus a costume contest where they can dress up without it having to be Halloween!

More details can be found at the AwesomeCon-DC website.
