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.
