Well, NYCC is literally around the corner. I’ll be on panels for almost all of Friday, so the best time to catch me if you want something signed is at the Image booth at 11 am that day. I will, however, be at my table (K2) in Artists Alley for almost all of Saturday. Sunday, I have to head back to Boston that morning. It’s a short trip, but packed to the gills. I’ll be signing posters at my table (and I might have a few other goodies), so stop by and say hi on Saturday!
Friday: 11 am signing @ the Image Booth #1544
