For those of you in the Sacramento area looking for something to do this weekend, you could do a lot worse than hitting From The Land Beyond. Second year for this show, which skews towards the spooky side of things, though there’s some comics goodness there, including Dan Brereton and, uhm, me. I’ll be there with copies of MURDER MOON and the limited edition chapterbooks for the first chapter of THE THIRSTY and should have some pages from Luis Guragna’s artwork for “Red Hands”, which is the upcoming second feature in THE THIRSTY.
Here’s a little of what Luis has been working on in the meantime:
Head on over here to check the show out. Looks like it also dovetails into the fall edition of the quarterly Sac-Anime/Comics show as well, on Sunday that is. Out of towners are recommended to Weiner Works on Madison near Hemlock for the best chili fries in town. And if you’re not in the mood for that, then there’s the Brazilian steakhouse three doors down. The show itself runs Friday-Sunday, and leads off the mini-convention season that hits around this time of year.
Next week is the first annual Long Beach Comic Convention, which I’m very much looking forward to. The Wizard shows held in Long Beach were only a million times better than the shows in LA, and it’s a great venue. I’ll be right next to David Gallaher (and maybe Steve Ellis, not sure–David you wanna confirm/deny?) of HIGH MOON. Rumor has it that I’ll even be on a panel there, which should be interesting. This runs Friday to Sunday as well. Same items up for grabs, unless I have to run to a second edition of the chapbooks.
Two weeks after that is the Alternative Press Expo at the Concourse in downtown San Francisco. I’ve been to APE many, many times and am looking forward to finally exhibiting there. Hopefully it won’t rain so damn hard this year. I couldn’t even get to Holy Burger without getting soaked to the bone.
Hope to see some of you fine folks at the above events. And don’t forget, at each one, I’ll be doing Fabulous Five Minute Stories, an example of which you can read right here. Remember, each one is hand-crafted for maximium quality assurance!
