Shows, Shakespeare and stuff

I went to Winston Salem for Jay and Eddie's Comic Book Show on Saturday.  Had a nice time, saw a lot of people I knew, that is getting to be a real favorite thing of mine.  I try to socialize more with the people I meet at shows (instead of just jumping back on the road for the long ride home), and I am getting better about that.  Comics (or at least making mine) has always been such a solitary and private thing, I think I overlooked the social aspect of it all.  Just keeping in touch with people you see at shows makes it a lot different.  I made a point of that in Heroescon last month and then again in Winston Salem on Saturday.  Glad I did.

Now I have a production to finish here.  The Complete Works of William Shakespeare is a play I am directing here in Wilson, NC.  That has been a lot of fun and hard work getting together.  But I have a great group of people working on it and it is going to be an amazing show.  A different creative vibe flowing.

The next shows I have are Winston Salem and Greenville, NC.  More details to follow.

Comic show in Winston Salem

I am working a lot on directing a play called The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged).  If you have the chance you should see it.  If you have the chance to see mine, then all the better.  It is one of the funniest things on the planet.  And I don't consider that to be an exaggeration.

I have work tomorrow, then rehearsal tomorrow night, and then I wake up early and go to Jay and Eddie's Comic Book Show.  I need my comic book convention fix, it will be fun.  I will get to see some dealers that I have gotten to know better, and some artists that I see more and more frequently.

And if anyone walks up to me and says the magic phrase "Bob stole my arm and painted it blue" you win a prize.

If someone walks up wearing a costume from my comic Intermezzo, I will throw so much free $#!&! your way you won't be able to carry it.

Jay and Eddies comic book show

I have not posted on here lately.  After Heroescon I have been very busy.  But today I am home with back trouble, so I will take the time to update what I am doing.

I have a con this Saturday in Winston Salem, Jay and Eddie's comic book show.  I have been there many times and really enjoy it.  I also hope to keep in touch with some people I haven't seen in a while.  Unless things get worse with my back.

Issue 12 is plotted and soon to be scripted.  It has taken some time for me to get started on this.  My free time has been spent in rehearsals for a play I am directing, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged).  It is one of the funniest scripts on the planet.  It will be presented the last weekend of July and the first weekend of August.  After that I can go full speed to issue 12.

Issue 12 will be an action packed issue neck deep in the Bootooth Saga.  I like it already.
