I don't appear at comic book conventions very often—I'm an extremely private person and I don't deal with crowds all that well—but, the next few weeks, I'll be appearing at two: the Baltimore Comic Con in, well...Baltimore (I bet you saw that coming, didn't you?) and the Big Apple Comic Con in New York City. What makes these appearances worthwhile for me is the opportunity to meet the folks who read, and appreciate, my work and talk to them, one on one. If you're in Baltimore this coming weekend or in NYC the following week, please stop by and say hello. Before you know it my keepers will be carrying me back to my tower, in that misty land between Abadazad and Imaginalis. Who knows when they'll let me out again?
