Two things...

Haven't been on here in a whiles yo.

Coming up fast on what will be a nice fall for comic fans in the 614 area code:

Beginning on October 8th, The Columbus Museum ofArt will be showing originals from Robert Crumb's Genesis adaptation. Part of a touring exhibit. I'm pretty stoked about that. The exhibit runs thru mid-January 2010.

Also from October 14th thru the 17th, the OSU Cartoon Library will be hosting the Bi-annual Festival of Cartoon Art. There'll be quite a few panels of interest and a great guest list. Highlights include Matt Groening, Art Spiegelman, Patrick McDonnell, Roz Chast, and many more.

Then there's the Mid-Ohio Con. November 6-7th.

Past exhibitor, Steve Hamaker has a nice write-up in the local alt-weekly this week. His collected Fish N' Chips is now available for pre-order thru Diamond (order code# AUG100915F). Kid friendly and delicious.

Champion City Comic Con this Saturday

Champion City Con 2010 is almost here. September 11, 2010 at Wittenberg,

Here's a taste of what is in store for you this year. For more and up to date information visit .

Overnight guests can receive a discounted rate at Country Inn & Suites by reserving as a Champion City Con attendee. 937-322-2200 or at .

Hack/Slash invades Champion City! Series creator and writer Tim Seeley will be here along with series artist Daniel Leister. Rumor has it that Cassie herself may even make an appearance. (...and the omnibus came in today, and it's awesome, cause you can't find any back issues... ever).

Vendors, Special Guests and friends are welcome to attend "An Evening with Hack/Slash and Ron Fortier"- Dinner and drinks at a local establishment with Tim, Daniel and Ron from 6pm-8pm Friday, September 10.

Please email if you plan to attend as seating is limited to 40. There is no charge to attend. Dinner and drinks are extra.

There are far too many creators, writers and artists to name them all... so I'll just throw out a few:

Ron Fortier- Daughter of Dracula, Green Hornet, Terminator and much more. Ron's appearance is sponsored by Chuck Moore and Comic Related.

Josh Medors- Conan, Frank Frazetta's Dark Kingdom, Vengeance of Moon Knight and he even did some early work on Hack/Slash. Josh is battling a very aggressive form of spinal cancer and will be the recipient of this year's Champion City Live Auction proceeds.

Chad Lambert, Andy McGinn, Matt Smith, Freestyle Komics, Studio Akumakaze, Dave Arhar, Dustin Carson, Sean Forney and many, many more. I'll have a complete list on the convention site soon.
