SPACE CON All LINED UP! LUSTIG GETS PUBLISHED By MARVEL!

One of my latest photos. See more at: http://www.afreemanphotography.com

First of all I've signed up for the SPACE Con 2006. It's in Columbus, OH, on May 13th and spills over into May 14th. It's usually a very fun show and keeps getting bigger each year. This will be my 3rd year to attend and have a booth, in a row. Last year I even walked around and filmed 30 of the booth attendees, asking them why they publish, write or draw comics....turned out to be a very fun DVD. It's for sale at www.slambang.us if you want to check it out. Anyway, this year I'll have Chris Moshier the writing guru on lots of Fan-Atic Press books you'll see in the future, in front of my camcorder interviewing the creators at SPACE. Along with his friend Mike. (I think that's the friends name.) So should be an even better production than last years. Todd Ritter who was co-editor on a lot of the Slam Bang books in the 80's-90's, will return to the con and help run the booth as well as Christina Wald who also has shown up the last 2 years to help me. She also did the cover to Slam Bang #1 Vol III, which I plan to have out at this show!

Next on the agenda is John Lustig's made the big time. Again. He's already a big name in the comic industry with working with comics from Disney and his Last Kiss comics but now he's written comics for Marvel! Read a bit about it here. I'm glad to say I colored the image on that article and have been coloring panels for John for about 2 years or so....and I colored two of the advertisments for this Marvel project! Maybe I can ride his coat-tails into more work at Marvel! It could happen!

The cover for E.I. by Wunderman Comics is done. I did the pencils, inks and colors. And the logos on the cover. I'll see if they will let me show the cover here and then I'll post it. It will debut at the San Diego Comic con I believe. And there will be posters of the cover that I'll sign. I also lettered that 64 page comic! It's full color and has pencils by Ron Fontes! Wow.

Hey, Allen! I'll be at SPACE as well (sixth straight year for me!), and I'm hoping you'll bring some copies of the Anton Bogaty sketchbook along as well as the new Slam-Bang (love those cover!)...I can't wait to get my paws on 'em!
