One week from tonight I'll be winging my way down to Toronto for the Paradise Toronto Comicon, where All New Comics will be making its presence felt for the second year in a row. It will be a pretty good time, but secretly I dread it a little bit.
I like the actual show part, but I'll be so busy that I'll likely not see much of the actual show. I'd love to get a comission from Michael Avon Oeming or from Matt Wagner, but there's no chance of that happening. I'd love go get some sketches in my new sketchbook, but I don't think I'll have any time, and the truth is I don't really NEED anything from any of the retailers (though I may keep an eye out for the Teen Titans cartoon on DVD).
Friday we'll likely get to the place at 10, set up, and then the show starts at 3. It ends at 8, so that's a long day. Friday night Pete and I are hosting a little something at the Kit Kat Club, so that will be fun. Saturday the show starts at 10 and goes to 6:30, and then Char and I are meeting up with our friends Jeff and Tiffany to go see Evil Dead: The Musical (which Ryan gave rave reviews to earlier in the week). Sunday the show goes from 11am to 5, and then it's back to Pete's place to unload.
I'll hopefully be home in London by about 10, then I get a full night's sleep, and head to work where we start on a fairly major relaunch of the site.
In the meantime I've got a bunch of website things to do for All New Comics this weekend that will hopefully launch by Thursday night (if all goes well). And if that happens I'll be a happy man indeed.
