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...
