Running from one convention and diving headfirst into the next — that seems to be how my fall season is. I’m sorry about the flurry of “announcement” posts as of late, but at least you know that there are opportunities to see what I do “offline” as well as on the interwebz.
For those of you planning to go to New York Comic Con on October 10 – 13th, I shall be attending all four days, and am thrilled to be moderating a trio of panels featuring some very wonderful and talented folk. So, check out my schedule after the jump!
