The details can be found at the website AwesomeCon-DC, and it’s going to be at the Washington DC Convention Center. Comic guests will include Larry Hama, Herb Trimpe, Ben Templesmith, John Gallagher, and a bunch of others. Additionally, the Hollywood types of Billy West, Phil LaMarr, and Ernie Hudson will be on hand.

As far as I know there’s going to be a G.I.Joe panel with Hama, Trimpe, and for some reason, me. Time to get your geek questions ready.

For me, AwesomeCon wins the prize for “shortest distance travelled for an appearance”— so come out, make it a huge success. Then I can drop all the other shows to just attend this one, annually. Yes, I’m that lazy.

I’ll post a reminder the week before the show, but put it on your calendars…now.

Fire ONE! Fire TWO!

July 3, 2012

That’s right, this weekend I’ll be appearing at TWO comic shows!

First up, the Southern Maryland Comic-Con on Saturday (July 7, 2012) from 10am-5pm at the Capital Clubhouse in Waldorf, MD, admission is a meager $10, with kids under 10 getting in free! It’s a crazy place with indoor ice skating (stay cool my friends), rock climbing, and all sorts of other activities to fill the day. There’s something perfect for everyone in the family to tag along for!

Other guests include the brilliant Steve Conley, Timelord J.K.Woodward, ninja Matt Slay, “Revival” creator Tim Seeley, stunning and funny Carolyn Belefski, pyramid coach Bill McKay, secret agent Louis Small Jr. and the great Greg LaRocque! We’ll all be signing, and doing sketches, so drop buy, have fun, bring the kids, and cool off!

Remember, if you can’t make it to Waldorf, I’ll also be running over to Richmond, VA on Sunday (July 8, 2012) for the VA Comic Con, at the Crown Plaza West hotel, and admission is completely FREE!

If you miss them at the Maryland show, comic madman Rick Ketcham, will be there with his Tsunami Studio pals Jason Walker, and John “Waki” Wycough. There’s also going to be a slew of artists around for sketches like Tim Dzon, and creators like Sandshark Dan Nokes. Oh, Matt Slay and Bill McKay will be there too, but those guys have gotten enough shout outs today! Bwah-ha-ha!

I hope to see everyone from the area that can make it! They’re great shows, and practically just a coffee date with comics! If you get to a comic shop this week, look for my SDCC G.I.Joe:RAH cover, it ought to upset quite a few Texas fans! (Hey the wife is OU alumni, she made this sort of stuff part of our wedding vows!)
