I just flew in from Chicago...

...and boy are my arms tired!

Yeah, yeah. I know that it is a hackneyed old line, but I’m a hackneyed old man it actually does apply. You see, I was not here all last week as a new client of mine spirited me off to Dallas, TX for the week to work on-site for a leadership meeting for their client (long hours, crazy-busy, lotsa werk). To backtrack for a moment, The week prior to last week I worked local for that same client, then on Sat I got picked up and flown out to Dallas. The meeting was Monday through Thursday, with me arriving back home Thurs Night around 10:00 p.m.

The following morning I got up and caught an 8:00 a.m. train into NYC for the NY Comic Con where I remained for the entire weekend. I got home Sunday night for a house full of relatives and a Seder meal. Monday and Tuesday brought a frantic attempt to meet a deadline in producing a newsletter for a long-standing client and getting acclimated back into my (so-called) “real” life. That newsletter off, I can now begin to post again.


For my first post I wanted to talk about what a crazy-good time I had at the NY Comic Con. The people who put this on are getting better and better at it every year, and this one tops last year as to what was available, and how it was staged. I came away with a metric tonne of giveaways as well as very way-cool contacts. I'll be talking about this stuff soon enough, but I just wanted to check in with all of you good readers to let you know that I haven’t forgotten you all, and I’ll be posting comic-related stuff very soon.

Oh yes, as you can see from the image at the top of this post. I too am a Skrull.

Heh, you fiend! Just don't say that weird, "He loves you" stuff.

I've not been in Dallas much despite living in Texas, so I can't throw any random anecdotes and so forth out.

And eek! Family get-together! Whom do you trust? @_@

Was wondering where you are at. NY Comic Cons sound really freaking sweet! Wait a minute, you're a Skrull?! Have you always been a Skrull or did you replace Robert upon returing?

As you can see by my way-cool T-Shirt, I was at the CAC (Comicbook Artists Guild)table, and yeah, it was a way-good time.

As for my home planet of origin, well “Go, ah, Jets, I mean...quick, someone kill the Earther!”
