Dave and I turned in our finished X-men manga script today! Just in time for my schedule to turn upside down with busy-ness: we've got the NYCC this weekend, and Stumptown Comics Fest next.

Friday, April 18-Sunday, April 20
New York Comic Con
The Javits Center

Any time during the weekend, you can find me at booth #2247, the Comics Bakery booth. We'll be joined by our lovely friends rufftoon and music_slut at this show!

Sunday, I'm on two panels as part of their Kids' Day programming--in fact, everyone under 12 gets into the show for FREE on Sunday along with a paid adult admission!

1:00 PM - 1:50 PM

I really need to change my LJ user name. It is disturbing to me to see the words "lovely friend" next to "music_slut"

Hey, if we have to hang out with an oxymoron, it might as well be you! ;)

Can't wait for Stumptown! I think I'm at table 87. We'll probably bump into each other!

Same! I have no idea what there is to do, but I just found out yesterday that two kids currently crashing on my couch are from Portland, and they have kindly offered to show me around while I'm in town. Small world, right?

CRAZY! I was just wondering this morning what the state of your X-Men thing was. Internet to the rescue, AGAIN.

Good luck at NYCC! :3

Will your X-men story come out as a trade paperback? If not, I'll have to import it... ^_^;

We get to see you at both! Well, Scott and I. The girls are only going to be at Stumptown.

Portland is an awesome city. After being to all 50 states and seeing more cities than most people do in a lifetime, I can tell you that Portland ranked in the top ten, maybe even five, of every member of our family. Partly because there are more wonderful and amazing people there than anywhere else.

You will have a great time.

And Sky is looking forward to the vegan donuts, we'll have to make sure you get some as well.

Portland is super-cool! And very veggie friendly (Will loves it there, despite his flexatarian-ness).

I hope your panels go well, and if anyone posts notes from your "Turn Your Life Into a Comic" panel, I want to read them... with my eyes!
