This was my 11th San Diego Comic-Con, and my second setting up in Artist Alley. It’s a new and thrilling experience every year. I love talking about my books (and other comics) with folks who stop by my table, it’s super fun to meet new people at the after-hours events around con, and of course it’s a treat to see friends and reconnect with folks in the industry. I might have also managed to get a new project or two off the ground — we’ll see.

At the end of the convention, I got to play Kieron Gillen’s beta RPG DIE, based on the comic of the same name, with an incredible group. I wrote up the experience for CBR:

To Live and DIE at SDCC with Kieron Gillen, Jody Houser, Jim Zub & More

Nearly missed my flight but it was totally worth it!

I don’t have any more conventions planned for the year, but I’m starting to plan for 2020. Can’t wait to see what next year brings!

San Diego looms large

San Diego Comic-Con is less than two weeks away! I'll be at Artist Alley table AA-19 with copies of Macbeth: The Red KingStar Wars AdventuresInteresting DrugHell, Nebraska, and maybe a few other things. I'll also be doing a few Star Wars Adventures signings at the IDW Publishing booth, which should be rad.

I love SDCC, I really do. It's just such a spectacle. And I love getting to see industry friends -- and pretty much everyone is there -- and meeting new folks. After a number of years reporting on the show for Comic Book Resources, this is my first year with a table. It's thrilling and terrifying.

If you're at the con, come say hi!


In addition to SDCC, I've been busy with a couple more projects. One is a Superhero Thing with artist Ross Taylor, which we're hoping to debut next year. The other is Another History Thing, set a few hundred years after Macbeth and not in any way a sequel. But it's super fun. I'm pretty deep into research mode now, even trying to read a couple books in French. It's going... actually much better than I thought it would. Thanks, Duolingo!
