Yesterday was another fun day. Caught up with my friend and former collaborator Greg Horn. We’re talking about doing a book together. Had lots of good conservations with lots of people. I wanted to see Adam Baldwin yesterday, as I know him from Big Hollywood. We have talked on the phone a few times. But he won’t be there till today, so maybe I will see him.
Then last night was the Eisner Awards dinner which is something I haven’t been to in years. So I was amazed how big it’s gotten. They had the cast of Scott Pilgrim Saves the World there and actor Thomas Jane from Hung (who was also the best Punisher, IMO) giving out awards. Jane is also a comics publisher. The highlight of the night for me was meeting Laurie Standell and Carol Tyler, two great comics talents I admire. They were both nominees this year. Laurie did last years The Imposter’s Daughter, which I highly recommend and Carol did “You’ll Never Know.” They were also awards presenters and were hanging out together, which is interesting because while Laurie’s book was about how messed up her father is, Carol’s was about how great her father was.
Once again, I got home late and only managed a few hours sleep. Now I have to head back.
I have to say, this con is the most fun I can remember having in a long time. Exhausting, but I’ve been having a blast.
