Comic-Con postgame show

Just back and recovering from SDCC now. The hectic con and after-events each night don’t leave much time for updating, so I’ll do what I can now, largely in the form of pictures. Most all of our news has spread around various comic sites, but we’ll also be following up with further news about our announcements like the new ROCKETEER series, new NEXT MEN, SUICIDE GIRLS, INFESTATION, and others.

Meanwhile, here’s a look at the show, starting with the unsuspecting convention hall, prior to the doors opening for the day. It would never look like this again.

And the IDW booth itself:

Outside the booth at 6:15 AM, this is AnnaMaria White, IDW’s Director of PR/Marketing, talking to “Robin,” the local Fox reporter who talked to David Tischman and I about TRUE BLOOD and the con in general:

And, you know, when in the deserted hall at 6 AM and on three hours of sleep, having a seat sounds like a good idea. Especially with Odin’s golden throne sitting nearby and beckoning me.

A few interesting characters came by the booth during the show, too, including Eisner-winner The Rocketeer (played here by Scott Brazee)…

…and Doctor Who 10.5 (Garth Baumann), posing with WHO writer Tony Lee.

And speaking of the Rocketeer being an Eisner-winner, we collected three statues at this show:

Best Adaptation from Another Work – Richard Stark’s Parker: The Hunter, adapted by Darwyn Cooke

Best Archival Collection/Project—Strips – Bloom County: The Complete Library, vol. 1, by Berkeley Breathed, edited by Scott Dunbier

Best Archival Collection/Project—Comic Books – The Rocketeer: The Complete Adventures deluxe edition, by Dave Stevens, edited by Scott Dunbier

On hand to collect the awards were Berkeley Breathed, Dave Stevens’ mother, and editor Scott Dunbier.

Other sights from the show (and post-show):

Me with WIRE HANGERS creator/Life of Agony and Spoiler NYC musician Alan Robert and NY Times best-selling writer Chris Mowry.

Missy Suicide, Steve Niles and new Eisner-winner Cameron Stewart, making SUICIDE GIRLS comic plans:

Panelist Peter David and panel attendee (and Coheed and Cambria founder/AMORY WARS comic creator Claudio Sanchez), following our SCREEN TO COMICS panel:

ILLYRIA writer Scott Tipton and ANGEL and ILLYRIA cover artist (and Harvey Award-nominee — go vote online now!) Jenny Frison, before the ANGEL signing:

Our booth was next to Rodenberry Productions, and the Star Trek girls working it posed for a picture under patron saint Kirk and company:

Finally, it’s not a Comic-Con without taking a picture with one of the many Slave Leias there, so I had to remain true to tradition. I’m the one in the black shirt:



  1. Great pics (especially the Trek girls), thanks for sharing! Great seeing you at Comic-Con again too!

  2. Can’t wait for next year! *head hits the keyboard*

    • Hey, thanks very much for all your help this year, it was very appreciated.

  3. you sexy mutha!

    oh, I forgot: you’re in the black tee

  4. You lucky geeks! To love doing your work and having so much fun with it!

    Congratulations on the awards.

  5. I wish I would have known Dave Steven’s Mother was going to be there. I picked up my rocketeer book, but no-one mentioned she was going to be there signing…I been wanting to talk to her about a few things

    Also, wish I knew you guys were going to have a big booth…I been collecting rocketeer memorabilia, movie props, etc etc for almost a decade (my only hobby)….I would have offered to let you guys display my rocketpack and some movie props at your booth to promote book or had my friend who has a more accurate costume hangout around your booth for photo ops…great way to promote the book…oh well
