No, I Was Not At ComiCon…

Unwritten: Issue 19 Process
More than a few people had asked me if I was at ComiCon which happened this weekend in San Diego, no, I wasn’t there. (My editor was.) I was in LA last weekend for ICON 6.It really took me one full week to recover from the marathon travel. I even caught cold! Who catches cold in July?? And I seldom get sick.

Here is some photos of what I did last week (despite my not feeling great). The Unwritten, which wad nominated for multiple Eisner Awards this year, is already proceeding to issue #19 on my cover schedule. I just finished this, so my editor can see it when he comes back from ComiCon.

And, here are some photos during my talk at ICON 6 with partner-speaker Fernanda Cohen, who was also the vice chair of ICON board. We each talked about self-promotion. Thank you for the full house audience! (oh, and I was in love with that cute pug!)
