Showdown on Harbor Drive

San Diego, July 2011: This year, TWO comics related events went toe-to-toe in San Diego; COMIC CON, THE undisputed heavyweight comic book show** and, across the street-car tracks, TR!CKSTER, a scrappy little newcomer that punched way above its weight class. I was involved in BOTH! Which qualifies me (somewhat) to REFEREE the showdown: In the left corner: THE REIGNING CHAMP, [READ MORE…]

YARD SALE!

COMIC CON, 2010: This year, Rhode & I had thought we wouldn’t be able to follow-through with our recent tradition of a COMIC CON BOOTH THEME; whereby we decorate our booth to look like… well, something other than a boring old Comic Con booth.

In celebration of all the glory that is the San Diego COMIC CON, here are some sketches of Con denizens that I drew a few years back… These drawings were all done for the “Field Spotters Guide to Gomers” that a few of us from Maverix Studios published a few years ago to aid in spotting Comic Con wildlife.

CON MEN

NO Credit? NO Problem! Here, at last, is the Abismo/Nerve Bomb San Diego Comic-Con report for 2007. A COMIC CON trend that some small-press and indie exhibitors complain about is the growing presence of huge media companies using Comic Con as a place to pimp their wares and offer previews of up-coming games, toys, films and books. Their enormous displays [READ MORE…]

Comic Con: Booth #1329

San Diego’s Comic Con is coming up, and thinking of Comic Con reminds me of booth-gals posing in the most difficult-to-wear costume of all time: The gomer-showdown begins in less than 8 weeks, so I still have some time to prepare new stuff, most likely prints, sketches and maybe a mini-comic. Abismo/Nerve Bomb will be exhibiting in the same great [READ MORE…]
