I’m Going to Phoenix Comicon!

Hey, what do Bruce Campbell and I have in common? Besides that we’re both unspeakably groovy?

We’ll both be at Phoenix Comicon on June 5-8! Mind you, Mr. Campbell is one of the big-name guests while I’ll most likely just be skulking around the halls fanboying out over him, but the point is, I’ll be there!

I’ve heard a lot of good things about this con and have wanted to go for a few years. A few months ago I was in Arizona giving a talk, and a chance meeting with one of TPTB from the con led to an invite. (Thanks, Lee!)

The schedule isn’t quite finalized, so I’m not sure what I’ll be doing yet, but I’m sure it’ll include being on panels, giving talks, and hanging out with my new best friend Bruce. And yeah, I do have plans for some other cons this year, but nothing is set in stone yet. I’ll post more info when I have it. I hope to see y’all there!
