San Diego Comic-Con 2009 was my very first Comic-Con. I had always wanted to go — especially since I used to attend Anime Expo every year with friends — but my usual congoing group didn’t feel the same way. Since I’ve stopped going to Expo, I decided to make it my goal to attend in 2010…that is, until Murder He Wrote got nominated for an Eisner. No part of me thought we would win (I compared our chances of winning to the chances of a wacky slapstick comedy winning Best Picture at the Oscars when up against epic profound war movies and arthouse films); however, I didn’t want to miss the once in a lifetime opportunity to attend the ceremony and hear my name announced as one of the nominees. And so I opted to go this year instead, prepared for my first major award loss.
Little did I realize then how incredible the trip would be!
I think the art was very well done in this story. It was a very different style. None of the stories look like the cartoons in this comic but this story is done in black and white and the art makes the characters look like they are real humans. I thought that was cool.
Why thank you, Liam.
Bart Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror #14 coming September 28 (next Wednesday)!
A month ago, I decided to draw a picture to help promote the issue. I’d been working on it on and off (mostly off…) and hurriedly finished it today when I found out the issue is coming out soon.
Here’s the press release blurb:
BART SIMPSONS TREEHOUSE OF HORROR #14
By Bongo Comics
by Hernandez, Niles & Fabry Bart Simpson spins some thrillifying chiller-diller horror stories with a little help from some of comicdom’s most innovative storytellers! First up, modern masters of horror comics Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) and Glenn Fabry (Preacher) concoct a dread-filled tale of woe, when a freak solar eclipse leads to an onslaught of vampire attacks, and the people of Springfield learn that there is nothing to fear but Nosferatu himself! Then independent comic creator and magical realist Gilbert Hernandez (Love and Rockets) re-invents one of his favorite cult films, Frankenstein Conquers the World, featuring Homer Simpson as a gluttonously destructive force of nature – so what else is new?
…Well my name isn’t there and neither is there anything about the Death Note parody but NONETHELESS, it is there, I swear.
