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 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.

I just paid for my booth at the Space Con, Columbus, OH. It's May 13th this year. And in a much larger nicer building.">
Went from $25 to $45 but still worth it I'm sure. I plan to make another video of the show this year. Had lots of fun making the 2005 DVD, this time I'll have 2 assistants with me. Chris Moshier from NY and a friend will do the interviews and I can stay working the camcorder out of sight and sound, where I belong. one of the most read blogs on the net, mentioned my comic - Anton Bogaty DRAWINGS. The 60 page comic size all color sketchbook of Anton Bogaty's cool girls, monsters and mad magazine type work.. I put out. I had a limited edition of 100 signed and numbered and still had 1/2 of those when this hit. I ended up getting over 100 orders in 2 days from this. Now I'm back to Comixpress to get more copies (regular issues, not signed and numbered limited edition this time). They lowered their rates on color comics so I may actually make a profit on this book yet!

I'm getting lots of great contributions for my Slam Bang #1 volume III. More Robin Ator and more Jim Siergey,! New deadline for contributions is end of February. I'll have the book to dreamweaver press in March and get them in April in time for the SPACE con etc... It'll be a color cover, 200 page square bound book this time. Black and white interiors. Dreamweaver has the best price and specialize in this type book it seems. Still digest size as Slam Bang should always be that size I think. I will print up 500 copies for the first run. Will try and get Diamond to pick it up etc... I'll have a bio of all the contributors in the back and they all get a 2" x 5"wide ad to do what they want with. And of course they get a free copy of the book.

That's it for to watch the Super Bowl. I've moved recently from WA (back to KY) but would still love to see the Seahawks win this!

Oh, and I cut my hair short and shaved off my beard for my new look this millinium.
