Hi, Groop. Sorry I've been too busy to participate lately. Here's some
stuff that might interest you...
1. Sergio, Stan, Tom and I will of course be at the Comic-Con in San
Diego. I'm hosting sixteen (!) panels. The ones that will most
interest you folks (i.e., the ones with Sergio on them) are a SERGIO &
MARK PANEL on Thursday at 1 PM, the QUICK DRAW! panel on Saturday at
11:15 AM and a MAD MAGAZINE panel on Saturday at 3 PM.
This year for QUICK DRAW!, the cartoonists will be Sergio, Scott
Shaw!...and the third cartoonist will be the one guy Sergio is a little
afraid of when it comes to being able to whip out fast, hilarious
cartoons. So this is one you won't want to miss.
I'm also hosting a GOLDEN AGE PANEL, spotlights on a half-dozen people,
three panels about cartoon voices, a JACK KIRBY panel, a DAVE STEVENS
tribute and a bunch of others. If you want to find me when I'm NOT
hosting a panel, I will most often be found at the booth of Harry N.
Abrams, the publisher that put out my Jack Kirby book.
I am only open to hugging by people who are really, really cute.
2. I will also be at the CONvergence in Minneapolis from July 3 thru
July 6. The entire Groo Crew will be at the Mo-Kan Comics Conspiracy in
Kansas City on September 20 and 21. Then I'll be at the Mid-Ohio Con in
Columbus, Ohio on October 4 and 5.
3. This weekend, Sergio is drawing the cover for the collected paperback
of GROO: HELL ON EARTH and I'm writing the foreword.
4. Work is proceeding slowly on GROO/CONAN but it is proceeding. No
release date yet. No news on the movie, either.
5. As you know, Sergio and I continue to write THE SPIRIT for DC. And
I'm taking on writing the INDIANA JONES ADVENTURES paperbacks for Dark
Horse, starting with #2.
That is all for now.
