BIG CON WEEKEND WRAP UP-- BRIDGE-CON AND THE ATLANTA COMIC CONVENTION!!!

Conventioneers--- Assemble!!! Trust me. I'm more tired than this photo lets on.
This was a double-header con weekend for me with two 1-day shows. It was a long, exhausting weekend, but I had a great time.


On Saturday, I was a guest at Bridge-Con in Monroe, GA. Bridge-Con is a convention to raise money for The Bridge School of Georgia, a private school for special needs students. Attendance was a bit smaller than everyone hoped, but everyone who came, including many of the school's students, had an amazing time. A big thanks to Greg Crews, one of The Walking Dead's zombies, for organizing the event and for taking such good care of us. In addition to a large contingent of Walkers, the Batmobile made an appearance, and there was a bouncy house and other activities for the kids. I, along with J.R. Mounts, Christopher Collins, Bryan Silverbax, and Sketch MacQuestor made up artist/author alley. We also did a panel and talked about writing, drawing, and answered audience questions.

On Sunday, I was a guest at thAtlanta Comic Convention in Atlanta, GA. ACC has been a home con for me for 17 or 18 years now. It's always a fun time with cool guests, great crowds, good shopping deals, and fantastic fellowship with everyone. Always a fun time. It was great seeing everyone and I look forward to the next one sometime this summer. Thanks, as always to Wes and Dave Tillander for having me at the show.

A big thanks to all who came out and said hello. I love doing these events. They are exhausting though. I called it an early night on Sunday. I'm doing fewer shows this year than normal, mainly due to my workload, but if you see me at a con, please stop by and say hello. You can keep up with my convention schedule here.

My table sans me.

I did a little shopping at the Atlanta Comic Convention. Great deals on these booksDaredevil, Essential Marvel Saga, and Blackhawk reprints. Cool reads one and all.

I also did a little shopping at The Book Nook, a local store nearby after ACC ended.
There I found these treasures. Buck Rogers Origins of Marvel ComicsSons Of Origins,
The Spider, and Spider-man novels. A good haul.

After a busy weekend at Bridge-Con and ACC, I went home to get some work done,
but 
tired Bobby was tired-er so he watched a little TV while he ate then went off to
dreamland where he dreamed of cons. Go figure.
