I call shotgun on the floor!
I wonder if Calgary is easier to get to than San Diego but free accomodation has got to swing it.

Hey, since Conor so graciously offered to put anyone up who’s going to Calgary, wouldn’t this be an excellent opportunity for all of us to get together? I think we should ALL go to Calgary! Just think of the fun we’d have. Two hundred or so of us all raiding the refrigerator at midnight; arguing over who’d get the bathroom next; sitting around the kitchen table while Conor made us scrambled eggs. I’m sure his roomies wouldn’t mind. It’ll be a blast! We can even help him straighten up that messy place. Two hundred or so people all pitching in will make short work of it. I think it’s genius! Hey Connor, stock up on soft drinks and Cheetos! We’re on our way! Who’s up for it?

Yes sir, Gary, I'll be going!

I actually live in Calgary and, frankly, I'm still a bit in shock at the fact that both Sergio and Mark are coming here, haha. Somebody pinch me! No wait -- don't!!!

I managed to meet each of them (along with Stan, Tom and you too, Gary) for a few seconds at the 2007 San Diego Con, and even though the encounters were brief, they were eye-opening. At the time, I was just entering art school with aspirations of making comics for a living myself and so meeting the guys who had created the comic I grew up on made all those dreams seem...just a little bit more possible, heh heh. I'm absolutely thrilled that they're coming here. 

Incidentally - if any Groopie was thinking of coming to Calgary, but doesn't have a place to stay, you'd be welcome to stay at my place during the con (for free, obviously). I live in a house with 4 other people in their early/mid-20's, so the place is a little cramped and messy, but if you're okay with it, I'm okay with it, haha. Just send me an e-mail and we'll figure things out.

Talk to you in a bit!
