MON, 6/17/02, 2:21 p.m. - In Response To: HeroesCon reflections (Tony
We had a GREAT time at this con. We already put our confirmation in
for next year. Thanks for stoppying by our table. It was great to see you
two again. Tell Leonard I really appreciate the sticks! I will use them
The entire con was fantastic. For those that missed it, check it out
next year if possible. A very relaxed and friendly con with a ton of top
talents. I was set right next to Andy Lee and J. O'barr. Quesada was at
the show. The Gaijin studios table was oppostite us. Brereton was there.
Pope missed this year but I'm sure will be there next time.
The con raises a lot of money for charities. I did two huge paintings
on a (I painted on the auction stage) and they both went for a good price
at the charity auction. Same for Andy Lee.
I saw Adam from this message board at the con. He runs an excellent
Kabuki site in case you haven't seen it yet. Go check it out. He gave me
a great mini comic of his new art stories. I learned that his girlfriend's
dad makes tape.
Nick Cardy and Gearge Perez stopped by my booth at this show and though
we'd been to many events together and had casual words, it was great to
finally have a proper introduction and get to know them a bit. A high point.
A huge thanks to the crew at Heroes con, especially Shelton Drum and
Dustin Harbin. I visited Shelton's new Heroes comic store which was an
increcible shop. THanks for the support friends.
An incredible weekend.Spent way too much of the way too
little money I came with,but I got some great sketches,a ton of signatures
and memories that will never die.It's always great talking to David and
Ahn.I wrote you guys a private Email to this site that explains in detail
why you guys are so great.Thanks so much for the killer sketches,but thanks
most of all for the kindness.
As for the rest of the Con...I was really looking forward to meeting
Art Adams,but I missed him.Crap.Terry Moore is so nice and down to earth
it's like you've known him for years.Bob Almond is a great inker and will
go into length discussing this very under-appreciated and misunderstood
skill with you.Charles Vess is another great guy who will discuss his craft
in very down to earth terms.Pop Mhan and Norman Lee are always such a trip
and just too nice !great sketches!Kudo's to Rickman who did me a way bitchin'
sexy freefall.James OBarr seemed much more at ease and down to earth this
year.He was out walking around a lot,something I've rarely seen him do.He
has always been very nice,however.All the artists I met seemed really great,except
for one who seems to be the same every year and shall remain nameless here.I
guess everyone has bad days,but this guy seems to have them every year.Ha..O
well. Budd Root actually let me gaze upon an original Frank Cho page!!!!Geez
Frank just slays me. But screw it,this is Davids forum and even if it wasn't,let
me scream this....Kabuki @%@$$@%@$ rules!!!David and Ahn #@!!#@$ rule!!!Andy Lee is a mad $@%@$#@ genius who has just begun to scratch the surface of the 1970's cereal box icons.We are the freakies we are the freakies and
this is our freakies tree!We never miss a meal,cuz we love our cereal!!Nuff
A reminder PORTLAND con THIS Sunday...
MON, 6/17/02, 2:25 p.m. - Brian Bendis, Andy Lee, Anh and I will be

This is my first ever signing in Portland and my only one on the schedule
for the foreseeable future.
We will have original art and all kinds of stuff. We will be happy to
sign as many comics as you want and some proceeds from the con go to charity.
Hope to see you there. If you have any questions, just ask here.

THIS Sunday... (Weird Kid)
Which charities do you support, David?
You know I really should go back and check on the complete list so I get
all the proper names correct and don't leave anyone out. But off the top
of my head the basic causes that I've contributed to and donated art for
auctions in the last few years include some of these causes:
Aid for burnt children
Make a wish foundation
aid for cancer paitients
Doctors without borders
Ronald McDonald house
Actor(a commitment to our roots)
I know that I'm leaving a ton out. So I'll go get the complete list
of all the proper Charity organizations so that I can credit them and list
which Charities the each convention supports and raised money for at each
and every show.
