This upcoming convention marks my 900th appearance at the San Diego Comicon, and to commemorate this I shall be sitting and signing things for a change.
If you plan on attending this year’s event, and are hoping to have me sign things things in dead silence while I stare down at the table recalling everything that went so so wrong, then this post is for you!
Here’s what you gotta know:
I’m there from Thursday the 21st to Sunday the 25th.
Personally, I think that’s way too much time, but that’s what I got for not reading my email messages from Slave Labor Graphics until it’s too late to change anything. But my prolonged nightmare means more chances for you to get stuff signed! YEEEHAWWW!
WHEN AND WHERE:
panel – ‘Comic Book Sunday’ – 1:30 -2-30 (Room 7AB): I’m actually not sure why I’m on this. I think mainly I’m friends with the Comic Book Sunday guys and they just looOooOoOove having me around because I’m so cool and I always make everyone happy. Ah well. I’ll get to sit and listen to people talk about things for an hour.
signing – 2:30-4:00 and 5:30-7:00 at the SLG booth (#1815)
Friday 2:30-4:00 at the SLG booth and 5:30-7:00 at the TopatoCo booth (#1231)
Saturday 2:30-4:00 and 5:30-700 at the SLG booth
Sunday 2:00-3:30 at the SLG booth
At night, after each signing, you’ll be able to find me in my hotel room, curled up and screaming into a pillow.
SPOILS OF WAR:
Aside from the usual library of comics and such available through SLG, there will be a few special items for con that, if you’re lucky (or real unlucky, I guess) you just might be able to burden yourself with…
ZERO DAY poster – Comicon will be the first place to pick up the poster I did based on the cover artwork I did for MC Frontalot’s Zero Day album. Like Frontalot, and album artwork, well maybe you’ll dig the poster. Hate Frontalot? That works, too! The poster isn’t actually him, so it’s not like you even have to think of him while enjoying the poster! The image is a color variant from that used on the album and is actually extended into a wider format with a whole mess of new bugs drawn in. These things are shiny.
Frontalot and I will be signing these things together at the TopatoCo booth on Friday at 5:30-7, so watch for the two guys in glasses (we’ll be the only two such types there).
Posters are going for $15, and, once con is over, the remaining ones will go up on $Z.99.
BOLT COUGHER print -
Now this one’s a bit covert. BOLT COUGHER’s a wee sneak preview of a giclee print I’m going to be putting out through Gallery Nucleus in the THE FUUUUTUUUUURE. Until then, there’s only be 20 of these mini-versions, and I’ll have them with me at Comicon. Printed on matte at 8.5 x 11, this micro-edition will, unlike the larger, upcoming ones, be customized by a particular me, with each print having a different wood-ghost painted and inked onto it by my barely human hands.
Here’s the thing. I won’t actually have these out on display. Only people that know the secret password will get to buy them, and that password is “BOLT COUGHER, PUH-LEEEZE”. Once those words are spoken, you will have agreed to buy said print, whereupon my leg will open up like Robocop’s gun-storing leg, and I shall remove a print for you. If the leg malfunctions, I’ll just remove a print from a little folder I keep next to me.
These’ll be $30 and are perfect for spending $30 dollars on. These won’t be available online after con, but the larger, non-customized ones will be.
