If you're looking for a more intimate convention experience, you might try the Albany Comic Book Show on November 11th. It's a one-day affair, packed with fans and pros, but nowhere near the numbers you'll find at NYCC or SDCC. The Albany Con allows for a fun, intimate give-and-take between those of us who write and draw comics and the folks who read and appreciate our work. I'll be taking part in a panel there, too: a discussion of fantasy world-building with Ron Marz and David Rodriguez. The rest of the time I'll be at my table, signing comics and chatting with anyone who's in the mood. It's a terrific day and, if you're within driving distance of Albany, one I suspect you'll enjoy.

Wanted to let you know that I'll be at the ever-growing New York Comic Con for one day only—Saturday, October 13th—taking part in the IDW panel to promote my upcoming mini-series The Adventures of Augusta Wind. I won't have a table at the convention—I'll just be wandering the floor in goggle-eyed wonder like everyone else—but if you catch me after the panel I'll be happy to say hello and sign any books you've got. (Within reason, of course!) I haven't been to NYCC for three or four years and I hear that it's mushroomed to near-San Diego proportions. Should be a madhouse (especially to a somewhat crowd-phobic soul like me)...and a lot of fun.
