Comic-Con ‘09

Monday, August 24th, 2009

Always fun, always exhausting. As great as it is to meet my fans, it’s equally fun to change roles and become one myself. Last year I made a point of meeting David Petersen, the creator of the comic book series “Mouse Guard”. I was blown away by the level of detail Petersen puts into his work. It reminds me of the “Gnome” books I read as a kid. Any man who creates an entire world gets my respect and “Mouse Guard” is at the top of my list. It was humbling, to say the least, when I finally met the man and he had no idea who I was. Oh well. This year I figured it’d be different, maybe he Googled me or something.  Nope. This year he didn’t even remember me from last year. Maybe it’s what I need after hours of signing books and soaking up praise. Did I mention that he asked if I actually paid for the book he was autographing to me? David Petersen: decongestant for a swelled head.
