Last year my bud Mike Lilly appeared at That’s Entertainment, a legendary comic book specialty shop in Worcester, MA, to sign on the 6th annual Batman Day. I helped him ink the Batman/Catwoman wedding print (colored by David Ocampo) that was given away to the first 100 attendees. But Mike wasn’t able to get me invited to said event. This year he did. So last week I inked a new print image as seen here, also colored by David (who lives in Mexico so he won’t be at this event). I’d attended this store several times over the years and the place is simply magical, like a time capsule comic book store from the late 1970s-1980s. One time I signed there alongside Mike when we were doing Annihilation: Conquest- Quasar with writer Christos Gage who’s family lives nearby. So if you’re in the area please consider dropping in, all the info is on the promo flyer below. I’ll be the annoying, giddy, balding fankid. HA!
