David Mack on New York Comic-Con
From David Mack:
Cool to meet you too. Looking forward to hearing what you think of the book. And your right, there was never a dull moment at the MOB booth. I was there 100% of the show and that is all I saw of the con. But it was a blast.

Here are some of my highlights and oddities at the MOB booth:

-First, just plain spending time with Brian and Mike, and even Joe [Quesada] who dropped by. It was really great to hang out with these guys at the show and after. Was great having dinners with all of us together again in NYC, and Joe Q's place, and then having such a great time at the show.

-The School of Visual Arts was set up next to us, and at some point the students showed me their work and I gave my best advice. And the Chair of the school was there and he said he'd like me to teach at the school, which was a great honor to me, because as a kid I had hoped to attend. So who knows, maybe I can at least do a class or a speaking gig there in the near future.

-I did a TON of interviews. A lot. I think there is one on the current PopCultureShock. But one of the odd ones was that I was interviewed by HIGH TIMES magazine. Apparently the editor-in-chief there is a huge Kabuki fan. He was really great. He brought me a 100 year-old Japanese art book which was amazing.

-One girl named Jade who had been writing to me for years about my books, and is an artist, literally was crying, and had to take a break. It was amazing to see that the work meant that much to her and it was a sort of special moment.

-Ms. Fumiko of the First Zen Institute of America showed up in person and gave me an amazing antique Japanese book!

-The editor for Simon & Schuster Pocket Star books brought a big mock-up of the cover art I did for his new Wolverine book for me to sign and asked me to do more covers for Simon & Schuster. Was cool to meet him.

-I met a lot of new Marvel crew that stopped by to say hi. Was great to meet these folk I've been working with and talking to in person. Same with the Bendis boarders that stopped by to introduce themselves. And the regulars!
