I’m going to Baltimore for the comic convention. I used to go to shows and hang out. This year it seems like I actually have a schedule. Saturday I’ll be on panels, doing interviews and I’m even pre-ordering sketches. I will spend most of my time at the BOOM! booth, because they published my Harvey-nominated book. Rock on.
This week should see the Too Much Coffee Man Omnibus in stores too!
Here’s some of the PR:
TOO MUCH COFFEE MAN has had a storied publishing history, first self-published in the 90′s by Shannon Wheeler himself and then during the last decade by Dark Horse Entertainment from which previous volumes can still be purchased today.
This fall Fantagraphics will be releasing Wheeler’s OIL AND WATER, written by Steve Duin about the 2010 Gulf Coast oil spill, and next year Top Shelf Productions will be releasing Wheeler’s GOD IS DISAPPOINTED IN YOU, a tongue-in-cheek retelling of the Bible written by Mark Russell.
In coming weeks, look for more announcements from the Baltimore Comic-Con. We are looking forward to highlighting our guests, the Harvey Awards, industry exclusives, and programming. The latest developments can always be found at our website, Twitter, Facebook, andMySpace pages.
This year’s Baltimore Comic-Con will be held August 20-21, 2011. Convention hours are Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM and Sunday 10 AM to 5 PM. The ceremony and banquet for the Harvey Awards will be held Saturday night, August 21st.
My buddy Mark Russell did a great write up of his experiences in San Diego. I shared my Small Press table with him as we’re working on the Bible together (he’s re-writing it and I’m doing cartoons). His blog post is hosted on Reading (kick-ass zine shop in Portland) Frenzy’s site. Check it out.
