  1. Hi! I'm seeing a decline in people accepting submissions for shows. I know it's kind of the middle of the season and things are hectic, but I sincerely do not want to leave anyone out on the Appearances thread. I've been though this subforum, hit up the sites I could think of, and generally poked around to try and get everyone on the list for the shows you are attending. I am certain I am missing some of you, so please PM me, post here, or even post in the Appearances thread. As always, thank you for your time and services! We really appreciate it!
  2. I just contacted NYComics about Stan Lee, they are not currently handling him. Anastasia's Collectibles appears to be the only direct route right now.
  3. SDCC is up! I’ve combed the listings for Artists Alley and Exhibitors for what I hope is the most comprehensive list available. MegaCon Tampa’s site no longer lists any comics guests. I’ve left them up but I don’t know if it’s legit or not. It may have been last year’s list for all I know and they are now preparing this year’s list. ATTENTION FACILITATORS! There appears to be fewer and fewer people accepting submissions across the board. I've been through the Announcements section, hit up the website I am aware of, and generally poked around but there aren't many out there. Please leave a message here for any and all shows you are attending. I’ll get you added. It’s like advertising but free! Thank you from all of us who utilize your services!
  4. As a reminder, if you're attending shows and taking submissions, please let me know and I will list you so we know who to contact! The list below has creators that have been requested or that generally have a large enough following to be mentioned for the good of everyone. Please check and see if the creator you are looking for is listed! Also, please remember that if a creator you are looking for isn't listed, it doesn't necessarily mean that they aren't making appearances. It just means that no one has requested them to be added to the list yet. If you want someone added, just ask! If they are listed with no dates after their name, then they have been requested but have no appearances in the next three months. Why three months? First, it gives 90 days notice, give or take. That is generally enough time to make arrangements to attend a show or get something to someone who is attending. Second, it makes things easier and less confusing. Making appearances at shows is generally a side job for the majority of these people so while Bazooka Joe may have agreed to attend a show nine months from now, he may get behind on his deadlines, get sick, have a falling out with the promoter, develop hodophobia, or any of a million other things and he may have to cancel that appearance. Not all shows list cancellations, the guest just disappears. It seems to happen less frequently during the three month window. Checking the guest lists against this list then checking this list against the guest lists is incredibly time consuming. All of the shows listed have a link to their site. If the suspense is too much for you, just start clicking away and see if the creator or entertainer you are looking for is slated to appear at an upcoming show. If you want someone added or know of an appearance, you can either add it here or PM me and I'll get them on the list. Expect ridicule if you ask anything covered here. If someone is accepting submissions for shows or mail in signings or whatever, please let me know! Again, I try to keep an eye on things, but I've had some slip by in the past and really don't want to slight anyone. I’m a big fan of a level playing field. Popular Sci-Fi actors appearances link.

  5. I don't want to stray too far off topic here but has anyone read Providence? It sounds intriguing.
  6. Looks like Frank has a new signature style!
  7. Thanks, it really made up for our first near-meeting.
  8. The last one is my favorite of the bunch. I caught Neal Adams with no line Sunday morning in kC. We chit chatted and I asked about a sketch but requested that it not be the usual profile that he does, preferring a straight-on sketch of Deadman, similar to the #1 from 1985. He said he would but could do something even better if I'd take a chance. I agreed, cash was exchanged and he set to work. I swear he can just print money. I don't know that it took him a full 30 minutes and that was while talking on the phone and working his table. I think it turned out awesome. Deadman has been a favorite since I first discovered him around 1986. I give that date because I had to fish the mini series out of the back issues, so I know it had finished.
  9. The second one is from Frank Brunner. It's got some smudges on the back which I think can be removed. Time will tell....
  10. I haven't played the sketch game much lately but have three that I'm proud of. Sorry for the individual posts, I like to keep the comments with the book and attaching them doesn't allow that. We'll start with one I'm really kind of tickled to have. My goal is to put together the New Teen Titans by George Pérez. This makes my second and I've found a third, leaving Cyborg, Wonder Girl, and Changeling to go!
  11. Two more which really surprised me. I thought these covers were a no brainer for a Steranko CGC SS, but then I understand my point of view is unique at times. As a result I've got a pair of one-of-a-kinds! Theres a story with these, too. I met Mr. Steranko in Kansas City at Planet Comicon this past April. Before I get going, let preface the story with this: I apparently have some of the absolute worst luck in meeting creators. I first met Mr. Steranko at SDCC in 2006. I thought he was arrogant and stand-offish as he (supposedly) would only come forward and speak if you bought an item from the Vanguard Publishing table. I seem to be the only person ever to have been told this or to have had this experience. I had the same experience with Jim Lee at KC a few years later and was the only one to have a negative experience there as well. By all accounts, both are fun an friendly guys, meaning that I either exude some negative vibe or managed to catch both at the worst second of their day. I prefer the second option but whatever. So, in KC it was a three day show and I only made the second two. I got there early Saturday but didn't get in early and he already had a significant line. I just kept an eye on things and went about my business but his line never seemed to shorten. He even took lunch (or went to a panel, I don't recall any panels with him but who knows?) and the line actually grew while he was gone. Sunday, I made him my #1 priority and got in early and made a bee line to his table. I was about sixth in line and had to wait more than an hour to get my turn with him. My time came and I approached slowly and with great reverence. I had a couple of books for him to sign, both the recent SHIELD books with the Kirby/Steranko covers, one in color one in black and white. We spoke briefly, he asked about what color to sign in and I told him that he was the artist so I trusted his judgement. We had a little banter about it and he signed them then asked if I knew the story behind the covers. I told him that I did (I honestly thought that I did), that the cover had been one of a few pages from an unused story. He just beamed and said, "No, that's not it." He proceeded to tell me how he had approached Stan Lee at Marvel Comics in the 60s and he had sat in a waiting area with a few other artists, all of who had "fancy $400 leather portfolios." He said that he had arrived with his art wrapped in newspapers because he "didn't need to spend that kind of money to show that I knew what I was doing." He said that he got his turn with Stan and that Stan immediately loved it but expressed concern about accountability. He recalled that Stan spun in his chair and rifled through some original art pages, finally snagging what would become this cover and another page, both penciled by Jack Kirby. He told Mr. Steranko to ink them and bring them back next Thursday at 2:00. Mr. Steranko kind of scoffed at this point, grinning and saying, "I didn't need a week for that, I could have had them done that night but I wanted to show that I could follow orders." He said he returned with the pages the next Thursday at 2 and Stan was blown away, and offered him work on any book he wanted. He took Strange Tales and the rest his history. This all reads like it only took a minute or two but this was close to a 20 minute story with all kinds of flourishes and embellishments. Mr. Steranko was clearly holding court and it was truly a sight to behold. He somehow managed to work in that it was his first time in KC....ever! I had to ask the obligatory, "did you have any barbecue?" to which he rolled his eyes and said, "YES! I tried the barbecue, I'm going to go find some sauce to spill on my shirt so everyone will quit asking!" With this, I grinned and asked how he felt about Italian food. He smiled and leaned in close like it was all suddenly a big secret. He said, "is there good Italian here?" I told him it was some great Italian and suggested Cascones restaurant. He straightened back up and asked the guy behind me, "does he know what he's talking about? Is there good Italian food here?" I cut him off, asking, "Really? You think a fat guy doesn't know good Italian food?" We laughed and carried on a bit more. He said that he wanted to try it and I told him I would gladly take him the next time he came to town. He told me to talk to the promoter and I said I'd put in a word about coming again next year. He said we'd go then. I don't imagine that we will actually have dinner, even if he does return, but that's what happened and it makes a great story.
  12. Thanks! I loved the show when I was a kid. My parents would groan and roll their eyes when it was on, so I didn't always get to see it!
  13. Big thanks to Rich Henn for helping me out on this one. The original live action Spider-Man, Nicholas Hammond!
  14. I am deeply concerned about this but don't know where to start with a lack of solid evidence, address, or even full names.
