Comic Con Update #4

Scribes Awards 2010

Here’s a link to the nominees and winners of this year’s Scribes. Scroll down and read about the great new book about the tie-in biz edited by Lee Goldberg and contributed to by me.

Saturday is a day I like to avoid at the con, and Barb and I started out by sleeping in (while Nate and his girl friend Abby went over to Coronardo island to have lunch at the SOME LIKE IT HOT/SOMEWHERE IN TIME hotel) and had a lovely lunch at the Fish Market, then walked along the water down to Seaport Village. Very lazy, damn near vacation-like.

But we wound up at the con by late afternoon, where I encountered Patton Oswalt. As I reported yesterday, we saw Patton at the House of Blues and he was just outright brilliant — Barb was hoarse today from laughing so hard. We caught up with Patton where he’d just finished a signing at the Dark Horse booth, and to my delight, he was (comic geek that he is) glad to see me. We talked for about ten minutes and I gave him an advance copy of QUARRY’S EX. He is a delightful, down-to-earth, very funny (obviously) guy. I have no idea why he suddenly stabbed me in the eye with a pen.
