Down to Dallas once again!
This weekend Garth and I make our return to A-KON, a massive convention with a history of being one of the most memorable I attend all year. Some conventions are memorable in both good and bad ways, but in the many years I’ve been going to A-KON I’ve only had incredible, awesome stories to tell when I come home.
Such memories include:
– A young woman telling me she grew up reading my comics. – Being told that someone’s friend, who tragically passed away after a battle with cancer, found solace in my work during her last days. – Getting a tray of cupcakes celebrating the eleven years of Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire’s run. There was one cupcake for each year. – Regularly getting baked goods from friendly readers. – Doing panels before some of the most enthusiastic crowds on our convention circuit.
I see old friends there and am eager to meet new faces. If you’re in the area, I highly recommend coming down to A-KON. If you’re not in the Dallas area, I recommend making the trip if you can. You won’t regret it, and maybe you can help Garth and me make some new memories.
