This weekend I attended APE and I got really inspired by all the creative energy that I found at the show. Unlike San Diego this was all about comics...INDEPENDENT comics. It was a nice change :)
I want to thank everyone who has stopped by to pick up a copy of "Robotika" and if you are visiting the blog for the first time after the show: Welcome!
I shared retail space with Matt Maxwell, the creator/writer and publisher of "Strangeways", a well crafted western horror story with "cowboys and werewolves, as you like it":
I also got to spend a little bit of time with Timothy Green II, who just recently completed work on the best issue of "Immortal Weapon" I have read so far. We got to walk the convention floor and at Stuart Ng's table found a brand new (2009!) Moebius book which was a conclusion to his "Airtight Garage":
Our neighbors at the show were High Tower Comics promoting their titles "Smart Bullets" and "Ghostface". A very nice bunch of guys and gals passionate about the quality of their work:
And a very pleasant surprise of the show was running into Tim Goodyear a truly original comic book creator who has a wonderful ability to bring a fresh new perspective to graphics. I met Tim through Ryan Sook, but after Tim moved I lost touch with him and it was nice to get back in touch. He has always been very supportive of my work and has encouraged me a great deal when I started drawing "Robotika":
