Super Show!


This month was supposed to be awesome. This was supposed to be the month we took not one, but two comic book conventions by storm. Emerald City in Seattle was first, and it was, indeed, awesome. Next up is Super Show, in Reading, PA, this coming weekend. But I won't be there after all, which is decidedly less than awesome for me.

But I will be there in spirit. And better yet, Gabriel will be there in person! He will be toting all of the stuff that it took two of us to tote last time, and he will be toting it a lot farther all by himself. So let's hear it for Gabriel Hardman! He will be doing sketches for $40 each at the show. If you would like to request one you might want to give him a tweet @gabrielhardman soon, since he already has 13 people on the list. He will also have copies of his new sketchbook for sale, as well as original pages.

Meanwhile, I will be at work all weekend, a prospect not nearly as fun as attending the Con. I mean, "Super" is even in the title. It isn't like this is the "Meh, It's Only Okay" Show. It's the Super Show! Is work ever called super? No!

My only consolation is that I will be able to keep a close eye on Fredo Cat, who is recovering from pancreatitis. He is currently taking four different pills with each meal in addition to his normal dose of insulin. Plus, he had to get his abdomen shaved for the ultrasound which diagnosed his illness. Having the pet sitter in might make him self conscious about his naked belly. Maybe I should let him think that I'm staying home just for him...

  3. Sorry to hear you had to cancel the show. I totally understand the disappointment. I'm sure Fredo will be glad to have you home though. We're hoping for a speedy recovery for him!

  4. Thanks Metalgirl!

    Laura, thank you! Hopefully we will all meet up at Heroes in June, when my work schedule is not as crazy and Fredo is all better!

  5. This is tough for you missing a big event like that. BUT Fredo has you when he needs you - right now. I hope Gabriel has a good show.

    We have our 'Armageddon' show here in Wellington over the week-end of Easter.

  6. Mmm... original pages are tasty and psyched to see the sketchbook....

    As a sign of solidarity, Buddy and I have shaved our own abdomens in support of our bare-bellied brother.

  7. Marjorie, thank you! I'll tell Gabriel you wished him well. Sounds like Wellington has the show to end all shows, heh!

    Lol, Fred! You and Buddy are too good to us! And I'll be sure to tell Gabriel to bring the really good pages.

    Thank you Tricia! Fredo sends you a purr, now that he is back to purring more regularly.

  9. I think those fish might be a Victorian attempt at coelacanths :) And it's too bad you can't go, but I'm glad the comic thing is doing so well for you guys!
