Madness! The first day (Thursday, July 22nd 2010 A.D.) of San Diego's convention for the popular arts, or, Comic-Con, has come and gone, leaving a trail of destruction and drunk nerds dressed as the Green Lantern in it's wake. What has been seen? What has been done? Allow me a futile attempt at reporting the latest from the convention building:
The show kicked off with the first panel of the day in tiny room 5AB with Jeff Smith, the creator/writer/artist of renowned comic series, Bone. Getting to see, hear and smell the man was, for me, a bit of a dream come true having read the entire Bone series front to back I don't know how many times. Fans of the man were treated to a walthrough of an upcoming Rasl re-issue, featuring extended action sequences exclusive to the new collection, as well as a hilarious reading of one of the stories included in a new Bone graphic novel penned by Tom Sniegoski, art by Jeff Smith entitled, Bone: Tall Tales.
Also announced at the panel was another book in the Bone series, Boneville: Quest for the Spark.
Information on everything Bone, as well as Jeff Smith's own personal blog can be found here.
More to come - xoxo, Fitz
