Post Fan Expo

Fan Expo Canada has come and gone in a flash. This year, with UDON set up at both Fan Expo and PAX simultaneously alongside my own Skullkickers promotion stuff at the Image booth, it seemed even more insane than usual. My deepest thanks to Stacy, Chris, the rest of the UDON crew and the Image Comics folks for helping to make the weekend so amazing.

Edwin came up for the show as well. It was his first time to Canada and I felt a bit bad that we didn’t have more time to explore the city. He seemed to have a great time so I don’t think it will be his last Canadian expedition. We chatted about the future of Skullkickers and I’m more excited than ever about working with him on the third story arc and, hopefully, even more beyond that.

Charles Soule (27, Strongman), Kurtis Wiebe (Green Wake, the Intrepids) and I ran a panel on Saturday focused on writing and pitching creator-owned comics and it went over really well. The room was packed and I met a lot of folks afterwords who came by the Image booth to let us know how informative and entertaining they found the presentation. With a bit of luck I’m hoping the three of us can do a similar panel for New York Comicon in October.

Otherwise, business was good and the social/networking aspect of the show was top notch. The kinds of conversations and breakthroughs I was hoping to get at San Diego Comicon seemed to materialize in Toronto instead, which was a great way to cap off the summer convention season. I’m excited and hopeful about the rest of 2011 and potential for the new year.

Stacy’s upstairs clacking away on work stuff and I just finished a proposal for a new project I have my fingers crossed for. It was a busy weekend, but there’s no time to rest as we push onwards this week to the goals ahead.
