Spokane Comic-Con 2010: After Action Report

Well, the 2010 Spokane Comic-Con has come and gone. It was a good time and notable in that we had a special guest come with us. Leigh’s lovely wife Laura came with us, braving not only the wilds of Eastern Washington, but also the five-hour drive it took to get us there.

All in all, a lovely time was had by everyone.

The con itself went well. To our right were the fine gentlemen from the Eisner-nominated PX! webcomic. Lars Brown of Northworld was to our left, Darkslinger Comics was behind us, as was Black Box Comix. In addition, our con-buddies and amazing artists Jason Metcalf and Randy Kintz were there, as was Brian Randolph from the very worthy Hero Initiative. Across from us was Eric Trautmann, acclaimed DC writer and all-around nice guy. I also met the fine folks from Saving Jericho, who are trying to get their show back on the air. In addition, our friends from Creator’s Edge Press were there, trying to make the world a better place for independent comics. I also met Cari Corene who writes and draws Toilet Genie (go read it, seriously) and we promised to read each other’s comics.

We had a fun day and then went to a party where many of the above attended, where many drinks were drunk and at least one Tuskan Raider imitation was performed.

Needless to say, we’ll be going again next year.

Wish I coulda stopped by and said "hi!" to you guys when you were here in Spokane. My youngest daughter, especially wanted to go. But my two girls both got sick (with something they have now given to me).
