Meeting artists and buying cool stuff at Austin Comic Con

Had a good quick visit to Austin Comic Con earlier this month.

As soon as I walked in, I bumped into friend and great comics creator Yehudi Mercado and picked up the latest volume of Buffalo Speedway:

Over in Artists Alley, I met some great creators. Had fun talking to local artist Rob Osborne, who sold me some Zango comics and this Gonk poster I had been admiring at Austin Books:

Also finally picked up Morning Glories TPB 1 and had it signed by the artist:



This book is phenomenal. Can't believe I'm just getting into it now. It feels like Lost meets The Prisoner, set in a sinister version of the X-Mansion.

I was SOOOOO excited to finally meet Jo Chen, who signed this Buffy/Fray poster for me:

Ms. Chen was a real champ, signing away despite a pretty nasty cold. I think she's the best cover artist working in comics, so I was very excited to get her autograph.

More loot pictures here.
