I ended up going down the floor late, kind of wandering around, talking to people I know, and having long, leisurely lunches with friends from LA, before going back just in time to leave again for dinner with some fantastic creators, like Adam Shaw. I then crashed out early because Thursday’s evening excursion left me drained of my victuals in a manner most disturbing. Also, there were massive fuck-off blisters on my feet that had me soaking them for an hour while reading the new Love and Rockets book. I was asleep by 11:30 or so, and I’m OK with that.
The new Love And Rockets book is so, so, so good.
The Eisners. Congratulations to everybody that won, with one notable exception.
I don’t want to be that guy, but why the hell did my guy Fred Chao get blanked while Buffy The Vampire Slayer walked away with a goddamn Eisner for “Best New Series”? A tie-in (no matter how high-quality it is now or how many copies it sold) shouldn’t beat material created for the native medium in this category, particularly when the competition was so strong.
Jason Ho gave me the best idea for a thing that I am now seriously considering doing. It’d be my first work in video, but the majority work required is well within my skill sets and the end result could be…hilarity.
I need to find some goddamn coffee. It’s 9:30 and I should think about starting my day.
