ME: I went to a convention in Philadelphia around five years ago.  I'm
sure Sergio has been to one at some point (he's been everywhere) but I
don't know when.

Frankly, I go to very few conventions these days besides San Diego.
I've kind of gotten "conventioned-out" over the years and I get
utterly bored, sitting there and signing comics all day.  I might not
even attend San Diego but for the time that I get to moderate all
those panels, which I find enormous fun.  (I'll be hosting a number of
panels at Wondercon, including a variation on "Whose Line Is It
Anyway?" in which a number of artists, Sergio included, will try to
quickly draw gags based on suggestions from the audience.)
