Wizard World Chicago 2006: Peter, Paul, and Bill
I only went Friday to Wizard World Chicago, and that was plenty for me. I was hoping to have a writeup up already, but I’ve been visiting old friends and going to a wedding instead, so Bill beat me to it in getting up his experiences.
Bill mentions a sketch Paul Sizer did for me as a surprise, of me with a giant “hammer of snark”. I couldn’t have gotten through the show without Paul, and I really appreciate having some great conversations with him. He’s going to be coloring the sketch, and I’ll post it here when I have a digital copy.
Bill and I had a similar “to do” list, apparently. I also was pleased to see the Gumby publisher there, and I don’t remember his name, either, right now. I also was very honored to meet Peter David, who signed my copy of Writing for Comics with Peter David. I was sorry I didn’t get a few more minutes to talk with him, but he was already late for a panel because he wanted to sign for everyone who was already in his line.
Which kept getting interspersed with Greg Land’s, demonstrating poor table arrangements. Put two very popular creators right next to each other in a corner, so lines had nowhere to go. But more about the wasteland that was Artist Alley later.
