I did not visit Jenny Frisson, cover artist of Revival, Red Sonja and more because while I find her work really great, I did not have $20.00 for a Red Sonja poster. Ms. Leth got a Vampirella print, and y’know, same thing.
Same-ish with Ian McGinty. I don’t know anything about Adventure Time/ Bravest Warriors, so…? I did slide him a couple Reboot cards though, and his sketch covers looked really good.
Jean Holmgren, who did the extra damn cool Memphis Comics Expo poster, was on hand and I bought one of her robot posters for five bucks (cheap!). Turns out she is an instructor at Memphis College of Art where my PFF is going to school.
I found Jack Kirby’s 2001: A Space Odyssey #1 AND 2 in the dollar bin of the Paducah, KY comics guys’ stuff and was (AM) pretty psyched as that (and Logan’s Run (really!!)) was kinda the title that dragged me into this (gettin’ near) lifelong obsession in the first place. I asked how they were doin’ (like sales-wise) and they said good, so I was happy to hear that. But not as happy as I was to find some HOLY GRAIL TYPE COMICS FOR ONE DOLLAR!!
Last and certainly not least, BIG UPS to Donnie’s mom, whom I recognized even though I had never seen her before (me: “I’ve known Donnie for like twenty years!!”; Donnie’s mom: “I’ve known him his ENTIRE LIFE!!”) for selling me a badly needed diet Coke for a mere one dollar when I was seriously flaggin’. Looks like she kept the artists caffeinated as well which is good as they are an especially tricky people.
