My pal Tyrell Cannon and I took a road trip to Columbus, OH this weekend for the Small Press and Comics Expo (S.P.A.C.E.).
We made a point to get down there on Friday so we see the Calvin and Hobbes exhibit at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum. I wasn’t expecting to be blown away by the exhibit like I was. Seeing all those original Bill Watterson drawings was breathtaking.
These pictures don’t do it justice. Seriously.
Anyway, This trip was planned by Tyrell. He was kind enough to invite me along and share his table.
That’s Nick Pendleton in the back ground. You should totally check out his comic Feral Boy & Gilgamesh
Traffic was pretty slow, but I meet a lot of really cool people. I did a ton of trading. Here’s my haul:
Also, Nate Powell had a display of pages from March: Book 2, which looks pretty awesome.
There was also a Saturday night Karaoke at a combination bar/ Bookstore. I made an ass of myself singing “Burning Down the House”, but I managed to spot this on the shelf:
I’ve been looking for this book for a while, so it was a pleasant surprise (and cheap!).
Thanks to everyone who stopped by and all the other comic creators who made this a fun time.
