FAN EXPO 2009 – Success!
Friday came around… no comics. When I checked online and saw that the expected “over-night” delivery was going to be Monday at 5:00 pm I got more than a little worried. Erika did some detective work while I was at the con, and managed to find out that the comics could be here between 12:00 noon and 5:00 pm on Saturday; a ray of hope!
So early morning Saturday I tracked the packages from Mirabel to Burlington, and intercepted the transport truck at the sorting station just before noon, grabbed my boxes of comics, and sped to the Fan Expo where Blair was manning the booth. Talk about deja vu (nearly the same thing happened for the release of Spud & Harry #1).
Never the less, the comics arrived in time for FAN EXPO 2009, and the people couldn’t be happier (except for Christopher Miller who came by early on Friday… sorry Chris).
Both Deadpool and The Comedian agree that SPY GUY #1 is the best SPY GUY comic yet!
Speaking of celebrities, I managed to take these pics:
Now I REALLY wanted to get a pic of Spock, but unfortunately wasn’t able to… I missed him and Captain Kirk back in 2006 as well… oh well. Maybe next time.
And what would a comic con be without FREE SKETCHES!?
Here are some of my favorites:
Black Widow vs. SPY-Derman
Spy Guy vs. Fazeman
Dark Possum vs. Dark Spy Guy
(The un-expected concept of this one is one of my favorites since Spy-Mite! And the idea never would have existed if it wasn’t for doing these sketches. It’s great exercise in creativity. I’d really like to colour this one).
Spy Guy vs. The Possum
(These team-up sketches are always fun to do. Especially trying to mix it up by fitting in a gag that wasn’t expected.)
