San Diego Comic-Con 2016

comic-con_logoIt’s that time of year again when tens of thousands of worshipers converge upon the mecca of downtown San Diego for the annual pilgrimage to Comic-Con.

I’ll be joining my brethren in the Cathedral of Pop Culture, but my attendance will be limited and I will have only a single appearance where I’ll be signing books. That will take place as follows:

Thursday, July 21
Geekscape booth (#3919)
2:00pm – 3:00pm

I’ll also have a limited number of copies of Big Egos, Less Than Hero, and Lucky Bastard for sale, along with I Saw Zombies Eating Santa Claus. But whether you’re looking to score a copy, an autograph, or just say “hey,” stop on by if you’re on the convention floor this Thursday.

San Diego Comic-Con 2015

comic-con_logoIt’s July again, which means it’s time to make my annual pilgrimage from San Francisco down to southern California for the one and only San Diego Comic-Con.

While I’m not scheduled for any panels this year, you can catch me at the Geekscape booth (#3919) on Thursday, July 9, from 11:00am to 11:50am. I’ll also be signing my new novel, Less Than Hero, at the Mysterious Galaxy booth (#1119) on Saturday, July 11, from 11:00am to 11:45am.

Every year at Comic-Con is different, with each year bringing its own unique experience. Some of my favorite memories of SDCC include: my first signing in 2009 for Breathers; the Vampires and Others panel in 2011 in front of a huge audience that turned out were all there for the Adventure Time panel that followed ours; and the Lucky Bastard signing before grabbing dinner with my editor in 2012.

But my most memorable year, hands-down, was for Big Egos in 2013. In addition to the signing at Mysterious Galaxy and a couple of fun panels (Apocalyptic Zombies, Geeks Get Published – And Paid), I was interviewed for the documentary film Doc of the Dead (now streaming on Netflix) and spent an afternoon out on the bay in a speedboat with a group of people that included close friends and people I’d just met—including one guy who did an uncanny impersonation of Christopher Walken and another who could contort his face to look like Robert De Niro.

That’s probably my favorite thing about Comic-Con: the people. Not only do I get to hang out with friends and colleagues who I haven’t seen in a year, but I get to meet new people and have the pleasure of enjoying their company.

As usual, I’m looking forward to seeing my fellow writers and friends, visiting the Simon & Schuster and Mysterious Galaxy booths, spending time on the convention floor people watching, and enjoying the energy of over 130,000 other pilgrims who will make the journey to downtown San Diego to revel in their favorite superheroes, celebrities, and TV and movie characters.

I’m even looking forward to the religious proselytizers who stand across the street from the Convention Center and tell us that we’re all going to hell for worshiping false gods. I’ve even scored a couple of Get Out of Hell Free cards from them.

Get Out of Hell

Hope to see you there!
(And by “there” I mean in San Diego, not in Hell.)
