Draw Me In Appearance #14! The Sword #24 by Jonathan Luna!

May 19, 2010

So only a week after it hit stores, did I finally acquire my copies of the Luna Brother's series finale and my fourteenth DMI appearance, in The Sword #24!

I had been a fan of their past work with Ultra and Girls, so I contacted Jonathan Luna early on with The Sword. I REALLY wanted to be in this book, but it was worth the wait.

But talk about keeping me on my toes. The last issue guys? That was a horrible countdown for me... ha ha ha.

So here is the final product. "Look ma, I'm on TV!"

So cool!

*Update* Unofficial Posting of Appearance #14!

May 13, 2010

*Update* I still have yet to make it to my comics shop, but thanks to a friend I managed to at least get a scan of the panel! I can't wait to get it already!!!

Alright! Deep breath.... and..... here we go!

Last Wednesday saw the release of The Sword #24. The final issue of a great story so wonderfully done by the Luna Brothers. After keeping me on my toes for over a year I managed to make it into one of their books!

And I wish I had a copy!

This is the worst part of not having a comic book store IN the town you live in. Not always getting your weekly fix of the habit.

I went out of town to my comic book store today, and foolishly I arrived late (I should have called!!!) and missed out of my stash. Went to another store nearby, and they didn't order any extra issues of The Sword other than who was on their pull list! But the guy at the store let me look at a copy (thinking back now, duh... should have taken a picture with my phone at least!).

So I've seen it, held it in my hands. But I'm back home now empty handed. Saddened.

SO... this has been my unofficial posting of DMI appearance #14 by Jonathan Luna.

Hopefully soon I'll be able to... I'da know, post a picture or something of it when I get my grubby little hands on a copy or... four. Till then...

Astonishing Spider-man/Wolverine Store Signing With Jason Aaron and Adam Kubert!

May 5, 2010

So I took off work early today for good reason. Not only was it new comic book day, which is already a good day to start with, but at Elite Comics in Overland Park there was an in store signing for today's new release Astonishing Spider-man/Wolverine with creators Jason Aaron and Adam Kubert!

Since I usually only get to go to local conventions, there was no way I was gonna miss this opportunity. God bless his heart, Adam Kubert to fly to Kansas City for the day from I think New York City, to sign our comic books. That's ton's of awesome right there. Period.

Not like I was going to see him anytime soon at another convention, I couldn't pass down the opportunity to tell him about Draw Me In and hand him a flier. He asked questions about it and I think for the first time, someone I've approached with DMI, asked how I got started doing this. (Which if you want the long story as I tell it, shoot me an e-mail I'd be glad to tell ya.)

But even though it wasn't super busy there, I didn't spend a lot of time chatting it up. I never want to press my luck, I am a fanboy at heart so anybody in the "biz" is like a celebrity to me.
If you're reading this Andy, "HI! Thanks for coming to KC, it was great meeting you sir!"
