Again, I have been allowed the privilege of attending Rose City Comic Con as a member of the press. In years before, I haven't been the greatest at taking lots of photo's when I don't have a photographer with me; but I am going to challenge myself to do so this year.
I'm going totally solo this year, so I have not made any huge plans regarding covers for my non-profit; Comic Book Covers 4 Cancer. That may be a blessing and a curse as we are dry on covers for the next series of auctions which are scheduled either the first Saturday of November or December... all depending on how many completed covers we receive before November.
While I don't usually go for the celebrity guests (except for last year when I got to meet "Weird Al" Yankovic), I am looking forward to the possibility of meeting Felicia Day. I hope she doesn't cancel at the last minute like last year.
I know that I have been lax on my posting anything this year, and I deeply apologize. The next step in my personal life is that we are trying to get my parent's house ready to sell. They've lived there for almost 30 years, and the house is about 100 years old. There are a lot of things that need to be done, but between the hot weather and physical limitations, we have not been able to give the house the attention it needs. Once this is done and over with, I will have nothing but myself preventing me from from tackling the ever-growing shelf of trades to be reviewed.
As per years past, I am looking forward to visiting the I Like Comics area to raid their selection of cheap trades!
