Secret Origins

Home from Expo.  Picking at the FELL #11 script before dinner.  Woolgathering.

You know how FELL happened?  I had an email newsletter thing, years ago, and I’d been talking about what became the FELL format (later called Slimline Format by Image Comics.)  And I said, what I really need to make this work is a brilliant artist who can do 16 pages a month and hates money.

And Ben Templesmith emailed me an hour later and said “Me"!”

So I wrote FELL for him.

(He’s drawing #10 right now.)

Not a very interesting story, I know, but that confluence will never happen again.  It still makes me smile.  One of my best days in comics, that was.  Days like that haven’t come often enough since.  Hell, imagine me throwing that question out into the void today…

Wil Wheaton, Cherie Priest and Si Spurrier at Phoenix Comicon.  The photo came from Si, who entitled it “Beneath The Master’s Sigil.”

Taken on way back to hotel room. Got bored with drinking alone. The signing was lovely, and I hope my partial blindness from allergies and my complete deafness didn’t make me too cranky. Apart from that guy who showed up with a trolley stacked with boxes of my books. I should have killed you on sight. (Not really.) (A bit.)

Off To London MCM Expo Tomorrow

May 27th, 2011 | brainjuice

Where I’m signing, at Comics Village, between 2pm and 3pm.

Lots to do until then, so it’s reduced broadcasting between now and Sunday night.

This is what MCM Expo looks like.
