The crowd at Boston Comic Con this past weekend was epic! Here the patient fans are waiting to enter Saturday morning at the Hynes Auditorium. What a great crowd — I had so much fun, so many laughs and met so many new people and caught up with old friends. Ran into Pete Bagge, Bernie Wrightson, Jamal Igel, Steph Buscema, Bob Polio of New England Comics, Cliff Chiang, Paul Litch of CGC, Jim Calafiore, Mark McKenna, Bob Schreck and many others.
The debut of the Rat Bastard SMALL DOSES issue 1 went better than I imagined. Fans of the old books as well as new fans made me very optimistic about the future of creator owned titles and self-publishing.
A crowd of young guys descended on the Crucial Comics booth and snapped up T-shirts, stickers and comics, then brought more friends. They had so many questions — it was great fun, I dug their enthusiasm for Rat Bastard.
