One Week to SPX
Leading up to SPX, I'll post a picture a day from past shows just to get you excited about this year’s show. Your passion will grow each day until about mid next week when you'll start waking up at night and wandering around in the dark with a stapler in your hand. By Thursday, your extremities will start shaking and you may find yourself doodling on the clothing of strangers with a crow-quill pen. You'll probably tear some clothing and get in trouble, but when they see the wild look in your eyes, they’ll back away. Trust me. By the day of the show at 2pm, you'll be foaming at the mouth and running towards the Holiday Inn Select in Bethesda with your wadded up cash clenched tightly in your shaking fist.

Be nice to the volunteers though when you pay for your ticket. They are there because they love comics too. They're on your side. And after all, they were shaking and foaming at the mouth just hours earlier. We’re all excited.

Wow--that triangular comic looks ultra-cool! Who did that?

Shawn Hoke said...

Jon- That triangular comic is "Bazaar Love Triangle" by Alixopulos, Andy Hartzell and Josh Frankel. It's pretty cool.

Kevin-Glad you're going, we'll finally get to meet in person. I hope I get to meet a lot of the people that talk to and read online this year.

Nicely put Shawn.

I know I've been remiss, but I really enjoy reading your stuff (which is why I pimped you in my column this week). You're doing some terrific work!

Sweet! Going to have to get a copy of that one!

Jon-

Here's the link to purchase the Bazaar Love Triangle. They have a lot of other good minis as well.
