CARTOONEY CREEPSTAKES: MAD MONSTERS PARTY IN CALI WHILE COMIC FANS GATHER IN THE BIG APPLE!
Hey Scared Silly fans - this is your weekend if you live on the East or the West Coast! That's because you'll have two chances to indulge in some cartoony horror-comedy goodness.
Let's start with my pal Patrick Owsley, one of the premiere cartoonists and illustrator of many notable pieces of licensed merchandise. This Saturday, October 13th Patrick is taking part in a special event at the Van Eaton Gallery in Sherman Oaks, California. Patrick has a "Mad Monster Party" piece in the art show, alongside many other cool artists. Plus, Rankin/Bass Author & Historian Rick Goldschmidt will be on hand to autograph his "Mad Monster Party" book! It's a true "Mad Monster Party" and it will be swinging from 6PM to 10PM that night. If you're in the area, consider yourself invited!
The same day, yours truly will be appearing at this year's New York Comic Con, held at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. I'll be autographing copies of both Volume 1 and Volume 2 of "The Best of Archie Comics." As I mentioned a post you can read by clicking here, Volume 1 includes one of the "Archie's Weird Mysteries" stories I wrote. It all happens at the Archie Comics booth, #1720 from 4PM to 5PM. Of course, there are a gazillion other cool comics and comic industry pros to check out at the event as well - a "must-go" for fans of comics, toys and genre films... and you'll find more than a few "monster" fans there, too!
Now, here's some video of me shot a couple weeks ago at another comics-related event, as the Kids Comic Con volunteers trekked to Manhattan for a street fair benefiting the Ronald McDonald House - ENJOY!
