Striking Gold(berg)

When I started writing for Archie Comics about a year ago, the first script I turned in was a 10-page story entitled "All the Doggone Day!"

When I saw veteran Archie artist supreme Stan Goldberg at the NY Comicon earlier this month, I told him that my Archie-writing experience wouldn't really be complete until he drew one of my scripts. He said he believed he had already done just that, though it was months ago and he didn't remember the title.

Needless to say, the story Stan had drawn was "All the Doggone Day!" and what a beautiful job he did! See...

Hilarity, you can be sure, ensues! And it's going to be published next week, in Archie's Pals 'N Gals Double Digest #146!

C'mon! You know you wanna...!

NYCC 2010

I was there, along with anywhere from 80,000 to 120,000 of my closest friends! I'm inclined to believe the lower number, but New York's Jacob Javitts Convention Center was jammed packed with fans of everything from Superman to...well, I don't know the names of any of the manga/anime characters who were parading around the hall, but there were lots of 'em!

I had a swell, if exhausting, time, meeting up with old friends from near and far (from one-time Vigilante collaborator, artist Tod Smith, who lives in the same state as I do, to artist Brian Bolland, all the way from England) and getting a little work in around the socializing. With some luck, a fairly major new project and several new clients will have come out of this show. I'll keep you posted...
