    This nice little convention kind of sneaks up on me every year. This time around I managed to remember to look up the details more than two weeks early.

    It's Happening on April 16th and 17th this year, with a couple of parties on Friday night.

    And the event has moved from a hotel to the Portland Convention Center.

    I'll be there. In addition to the show itself, I have a gallery show at Floating World.

    It sneaks up on me, too — and like Carla, I'm one of the guests this year!

    Also, there's a WItch Doctor art show at Sequential Art Gallery in downtown for the month of April. The opening's tonight during First Thursday, from 6 to 10 pm!

    Tomorrow!

    Also, FYI, the high-end indie cinema theater Cinema 21 is running the deranged-superhero-vigilante movie "Super":

    SCroll halfway down for the listing.

    It's supposed to be pretty brutal.

    My occasional artistic partner John Bivens and our editor on Omega Comics Presents, PJ Perez, will be at the show, set up with the POP! GOES THE ICON booth. That's PJ's operation.

    @StefanJ — I suppose I don't have any excuse not to see Super, as Cinema 21 is only a block from my house...

    @Russell — Oh cool, I didn't know Bivens is tabling with PJ! I'll look those gents up.

    Yep, I'm excited. Hope to see some of you there.

    I'm on the Horror Comics Introspective panel Sunday, along with Scott Allie, Shawna Gore and SPECIAL SECRET GUESTS (Eric Powell and Rick Remender, as far as I know). Lukas and I are also moderating the "Sneaking Into Comics" panel, featuring Nate "Nonplayer" Simpson, Joe Keatinge (former Image PR dude), Dark Horse submissions editor John Schrock, and writer Joshua Williamson.

    Lukas and I are also at table E-15, and we'll be selling the Con-exclusive Witch Doctor preview issue Skybound put out last summer.

    Molly Crabapple's there too. Someone buy her a whisky for me.

    I was going to be there. Then the car puked and died ten hours before we were heading out. Never trust those things, people. Treacherous fucks.

    Had fun at the Comic Fest this afternoon. Saw some good panels; dropped $100 in the dealer's room.

    The new venue was kind of odd. The 'fest was definitely too big for the hotel down the street, but seemed overwhelmed by the gigantic convention center.

    Yes, bought the latest Witch Doctor iteration. Can't wait for it to to go into regular production!

    Highlight was Ethan Nicolle and his editor's presentation about Axe Cop.

    Bummer: Forgot my camera.
