Much of my brain-space has been taken up by work and Small Press Expo preparations (How about those Ignatz Awards nominees?). I have a stack of comics I’m reading (and they look at me and sigh when another day goes by that I haven’t read them). I am having fun, for the most part, minus natural disasters (I was, luckily, mostly unaffected by both the earthquake and the hurricane, and I hope it was the same for you).
- I did make it — however briefly — to Baltimore Comic Con last weekend. It’s a wonderful con and everyone — from exhibitors to attendees — seem like they had a good time. I had a good time, even though I basically just went because it was there, but I did kind of have a “Why am I here again?” feeling while being there. That says more about my state of mind than it does about the con itself, though. I am quickly approaching comics overload.
- I’ve written two pieces for inReads — Literary Comics: Another Way to Consume the Classics and The Autobiographical Comic: Some Recommendations. I hope to write more in the future because I think the site is great.
- Yeah, and Small Press Expo. You will be there, right? We’re doing some cool new things this year, including the Graphic Novel Gift Program and something awesome that will be announced tomorrow. It’s pretty baffling to me that it’s in less than two weeks. I’ve been working on this thing for months and I can’t believe it’s almost here.
At some point, I’ll get back on a proper schedule of actually writing things, but I don’t see that happening any time soon. I am hanging around on Tumblr and Twitter and sometimes on Facebook, though.
(My SPX guides may be back this year. We’ll see, though. I think most of last year’s stuff still applies.)
