Wheel of Time Posted by Picasa

Robert and I Posted by Picasa


Just to let everyone know, I'm ok down here. Katrina didn't even touch us. That's in south LA I live up in the NE. I appreciate the concern but really, we didn't even get heavy rain up here.

So here's me with world reknown author Robert Jordan. He writes that fantastic series titled "The Wheel of Time" which I haven't read a one of but hear it's good so I've bought every copy and am just waiting for him to finish with the series before I start to read it. (which may be within another decade before I do!)

Kenny Baker and I Posted by Picasa


Here's me with the man Kenny Baker who played R2-D2 on Star Wars! My favorite part about this picture is his wife's face as she looks into the camera. It's like I just made a midget joke in front of them right before I said "smile!".

But yeah, that's me and R2.... I'm so cool....

Brand new week

Well start things off this week by showing you two of my friends Michael (with glasses) and Stephen who came in from Phoenix to visit me when I was in San Diego. Stephen's actually a really good artist and has been helping me with some Sanrioman pictures I plan to use in my 100th issue.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. My brother is in from California and so me Mom's getting to see all her grandchildren on a daily basis right now so if anybody needs a favor from her, now's the time to ask. (she has a hard time saying "No" around the grandkids!)

The closest I've been to a chick in months! Posted by Picasa

Day by day

Months go by faster than days! I can't believe we're almost done with the month. Where did the summer go?

Here's a pic of me with Lara Croft (the Tomb Raider) I'm shocked there weren't more people dressed up like here at the con. You always see people dressed up as Joker and Catwoman as well as Jedi. (who are in abundance)

If I were to dress up and go to this thing I'm not sure what I'd be.... an Ewok maybe?

Have a great weekend folks!

Another day

Well folks, we made it thru another comic strip. I hope you enjoyed it, new format and all. I'll be going back to a few more comic con pictures next week so they'll be plenty to talk about then. Glad everyone's enjoying the blog still. I thought by now everyone would be bored with it but it seems to me we get more and more people visiting every week. (how nice)

Men at work

As some of you may or may not know. I do have several people from work who read this blog on a daily basis. Well last week the assistant manager came up to me and asked to be in on e of my comic strips.
"You know, like me yelling at somebody" he says. Well Ronnie, the answer's no. I just can't draw people who are that ugly. (KIDDING: please don't fire for that!)

Phone Calls Two Posted by Picasa

Notice anything new?

As you can see we've changed a few things with our comics. They now come fully retyped now so you won't have trouble reading them anymore. They'll be more changes in the future but for now just one at a time . Enjoy!

Battle Royal! Posted by Picasa

The Kids

Here's a pic of me with some kids who dressed up as characters from the classic Japanese movie "Battle Royal"

The story about a class of school kids who get dumped on an island and have to fight eachother to the death to survive! (yeah you can't get it in America)

But it's still a cool movie. And the guy that took the pic for me didn't stand far enough away to get their whole costumes. They really looked great! Oh well what do you care right? I'm bringing out the new comic strip tomorrow anyway.

Me and Dave! Posted by Picasa

The Mack

For those of you who don't know comics very well I'll tell you who this is. David Mack. One of the hottest rising stars in comics today. He's a totally laid back guy and after I gave him a few pointers on how to draw we celebrated together with a picture..... oh ok, that's not exactly how it went down. But he is a cool guy and I was so happy I got to meet him.

Now as for the notion of the return of comic strips, you're right. It's time for another. So next week I'll bring out another strip for you at the end of the month, then return back to some more pictures of the con. That way everyone's happy. K? K.

C-ya next week!

AP Post

This was the day the AP followed me around with his camera and took a few shots for the press. Unfortunantly my glorious looks never graced the cover of any newspapers nation wide. (shucks!) I have NO idea what this guy was dressed up as by the way.

Dark Side hang out spot Posted by Picasa

Just in case

This post will be a little earlier than others because I'm not sure I'll be up in time to post it. (I need sleep!)

But! He's the morning of Day 2 at the Comic Con and as you can see, I'm right at home! These were some of the best Star Wars costumes I've ever seen! I also took a poll the whole time I was there, to see how many people had actually gone to see Episode 3 opening night and guess what the results were? %100 of the people I asked showed up to the midnight showing of Star Wars. Was this my kind of party or what??!!

Little late

Sorry this post runs a little late folks, I'm still worn out from the weekend. Anyway here's me hanging with Jedi Master Yoda.... it's ok, I know he doesn't exist. Bruce spent the better part of the evening telling me that... BUT HE LOOKED SO REAL!!!

A Real American Hero

Here I am playing around again at the comic con. They had this cool little stand up the whole week for people to take pictures at and I just couldn't pass up the opportunity. Pop quiz folks, if you were an action figure, what would you come with?

Look at Bats sweat! Posted by Picasa

Joker Posted by Picasa

Holy Crow Batman!

Here we have the Joker. Of course there was a Joker there. There's ALWAYS a Joker there. That and Catwoman are the two costumes I expected to see the most. And even though there were several Joker's around I only saw 2 Catwomans the entire time there!
The other pic is just too cool! It's from the old TV show with Adam West. Speaking of, did you know that they were selling the original BatShield as was seen in the show? Remember that episode?! Yeah, I didn't either.

Electro Posted by Picasa

Storm Posted by Picasa

Yes Indeedy

Here's a few Marvel Comics characters who came that day. You think the Storm picture is scary be glad I didn't take one of the cross-dressing X-men??!! They were guys dressed up as Jean Gray and Storm and believe me folks.... it didn't look pretty!
The other one was of electro and if you can't see it he had these 2 wires hooked up on his finger that would show electricity running through them. Cute trick.
Another similar costume that I failed to take a picture of was the ones of Mr Fantastic and Invisible Woman.
Mr Fantastic had these long arms and must have had some spring attached to them because he could make them stretch out even further for pictures. It was cool. But the reason I never took a picture was because Invisible Woman looked 50 and they were both wearing body sculpted suits that showed their bums... never a good thing. I thought it best to stay away, I'm still happy with that decision even today.
