Friendly Neighborhood Comics run by my longtime friend Ernie Pelletier has generously arranged for me to schedule a signing event in his store.

In recent years I've been found at his store on Free Comic Book Day in a duel commitment with him early in the day and a commute to

New England Comics: New Bedford for later in the day with my sometimes art partner Mike Lilly. But this year, FCBD was on Saturday

May 4 when I was scheduled at the Undiscovered Realm Comic Con May 4-5. So to make up for that (and to cover some swag I'd ordered there)

Ernie has devoted Saturday July 20 to "Bob Almond Day at FNC" from 11am - 3pm! A first of sorts, I will have all my usual Bob Almond-themed goods

in tow like original signed art, Black Panther trades and prints signed by me and, while suplies last, also by my legendary cohorts Sal Velluto and

Christopher Priest following a couple of shows we attended together, signed comics, other trades and other prints, and I plan to loosely draw up

at least 4 pencil sketches on backer boards to ink at the store upon request for $40 each deposited up front. If I sell all 4 or more and can't

finish in time at the event I will take them home to finish ahead of my commissions list for a meager shipping expense. Autographs are always

free with me and I only ask if the customer/fan can donate anything to my 501(c)(3) non-profit Inkwell Awards donation box on the table.

Besides my recent Angel Medina drawn and Tom Chu colored Thanos & Mistress Death new print I'd inked, I will be debuting my Art Adams drawn

and Chu colored X-Men: Days of Future Past print I inked. So drop by and take advantage of simultaneous deals from the store itself!

Now that the Great Philadelphia Comic Con!, the new host show to the Inkwell Awards awards ceremony, is now past, I will be focusing on getting caught up on commissions and prepping for more shows. So my commission list is still closed (except for those willing to wait) until I finish up a bunch of Tick wraparound blank covers, 3 "Common Elements" jobs for one regular client, and 2 busy recreations for another. (I'm also waiting for doing a figure in each of 2 jam pieces with the Avengers and the X-men. No assignments to do at the moment from Kingstone Comics nor the anticipated resumption of work from Ravesnake Media. But looking forward to a new Mike Lilly collaboration sometime.


My next show, a new one, is in a week at the Undiscovered Realm Comic Con in White Plains, NY on May 4-5 (first promo design by Andrew Harmon for my Facebook profile pic). The Inkwell Awards will also be in attendance but senior spokesmodel Hailey won't be able to make it so Kathy Denise taylor will be solo at this event. We will also be adjacent to our friend, the now retired Joe Sinnott (with his body guards Jim Tournas & Mark Sinnott). The show after that will be a return to the Garden State Comic Fest at the venue where we first attended their ice skating rink location in Morristown, NJ on June 29-30. The next two shows won't be until August with the Terrificon at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT on 8/9 - 8/11 and the Fan Expo Boston Con 8/16 - 8/18.

The Liberty Brigade is being funded via Kickstarter crowdfunding & it's written by Michael Finn, recognized by art collectors as the "One Minute

Later" client that has funded me for many commissions. This is his passion project. It consists of stories and twenty one-page original features

with public domain characters and many mainstream creators are involved with it such as George Perez, Alan Davis, Sal Buscema, Kevin

Mike Perkins, Josef Rubinstein, John Totleben, Jim Steranko, Ron Wilson, Mark Morales, Jason Metcalf, Sean Chen, Mike Lilly, Jim Calafiore,

Chris Weston, Ken Lashley, Al Milgrom and so many more! All edited by Mark Waid! Sal&I got the #20 and final origin page entry on the

Scarlet Skull. It'll be 80+ pages and once I discover a release date/ordering instructions and a price I will post it here!

A "Not Much to Report" Report Print E-mail
Written by Bob Almond   
Tuesday, 20 November 2018 16:43

Hi! I've clearly not had the time to post much for many weeks. After the September shows in Salt Lake City, UT and Utica, NY I've been home buried under numerous commissions and I'm awaiting the next Mike Lilly assignment. (Those commissions will eventually wind up posted at a newly created ComicArtFans gallery which will continue from the most receny entry on this site's Gallery section.) I did make a one day signing appearance at Friendly Neighborhood Comics for their annual Halloween Comic Fest celebration and that went pretty well.I've also been struggling to keep up on duties for my Inkwell non-profit, as well as my health. I did finally get confirmed some convention appearances for 2019 and the first two are listed above in the NewsFlash. The big news there is that The Great Philadelphia Comic Con! will be our new host show now, not the East Coast Comicon as previously reported after ending our 8 year relationship with HeroesCon. So it might be a light year of locations for our annual tour so far (others being Terrificon and Fan Expo Boston Con in August and Granite State Comicon in September) but more might be added, and the few we have we'll make the most of.

1925fb35fedf5eb3cf0b233fb36b4396Terrificon was our BEST show this year and better than the three previous shows at the Mohegan Sun!  The new, larger expo center and increased everything, from creators to vendors to celebrities to customer traffic! We made out well on table merchandise, donations collecting, donation box fundraising (my pal Jim Starlin especially!), my personal success, getting to eat out each night with friends and WE HAD FUN! Promoter Micth Hallock has something great going on there and we're very fortunate to be back every year to take part in the entertainment and craziness!

Bob-Almond-Square-1This is the next show for me, now just a week from Wednesday when my flight takes off for my first trip ever to Salt Lake City, Utah (see link above in Newsflash announcements)! Sal Velluto and family are driving me about and putting me up for the night! We'll also be doing commissions together at the show! There won't be an Inkwell presence except for donation boxes and brochures and I might ask a couple of artists to donate something but otherwise I'll have my usual selection of Black panther comics, trades and apparel as well as my prints and some original art. Just less than usual due to the limitations of a flight.

almond-warlock-9 orig10701990 334247603404088 1498175096953178153 n6270598Lastly, I was invited to the one day Uticon show in Utica, NY (link also above). Again, not only my first time there but a Bob-solo show (albeit with the donation box, brochures and maybe the signed Ms. Inkwell gallery book) but I get 2 tables here!! This show is run ONLY by volunteers and they have raised funds entirely to support the American Cancer Society. So I hope to see you in the northwest and the north east in September! There are no shows lines up after that until March so we're hoping for any invitations in that time so we don't have a 6 month gap.

Boston Con is added to the 2018 Almond/Inkwell tour Print E-mail

Just today I was confirmed for space at the Fan Expo Boston Comic Con on August 10-12. As some of you may know, I attended that show for years early on but eventually boycotted it. Fan Expo bought the show last year and while I enjoy mom & pop shows over corporate ones, I wanted to give it a try since it's in my backyard (I live an hour away) and The Inkwell Awards only had one New England show that supported me and the non-profit, Terrificon in CT. We did well there so now we can try again. Senior Ms. Inkwell spokesmodel Hailey Skaza-Gagne will be joining me along with Jayke Clark, a recent Inkwell volunteer, who will cover the Inkwell table and be there for general assistance to us. This show takes place the weekend prior to the Terrificon show (August 17-19). But after that there are no shows lined up for months at the moment. But should anything new develop I will keep you posted here and on my Facebook page. I will have limited (10) New England Comics-authorized b&w prints of the Tick signed by myself and Mike Lilly as well as the limited to ten Batman/Catwoman Wedding color prints by Mike, myself and color artist Dave Ocampo from the Wedding Event from That's Entertainment on July 7 as previously reported here. All this and the usual comics, tpbs, original art, prints and merchandise (much of which is Black Panther-related) that I bring to most shows.
