Once again, I will be attending Baltimore Comic-con, my very favorite comic book convention of the year! My table will be hosting Hang Dai Studios members Christa (The Giant Effect) Cassano, Vito (Stray) Delsante, and Deadpool/Lobo artist, Reilly Brown. Please be sure to swing by and say hello and pick up a copy of FEAR, MY DEAR, PSYCHOTRONIC COMIX, and my print of SUNFLOWER KISSES (+ more). And, I’ll happily sign your copy of the Baltimore Comic-con Yearbook celebrating Matt Wagner’s GRENDEL.
