Hey Wake-Up!!!


Tony here, and I'm finally back with some Wizard World Stuff... And these are some of the Fine People I had the pleasure of sharin' this experience with...

First off, we've got the man, Rafael Nieves seen here shakin' mitts with the Ridiculously Talented Illustrator Doug Klauba... If someone were smart enough, they'd pair these two together on a book... Rafael was quite busy durin' the whole con... Between signin' books at the Transfuzion table, he was also at the Moonstone table signin' books, meetin' loads of fans, makin' new friends while reconnectin' with old ones... Rafael and I also talked about our project "BlackBirds"... We also did a couple of interviews about it with Victor Cantu and the Fist Full of Comics Guys, and John Siuntres of WordBalloon .com... More on that later... The man is a MACHINE, I can barely keep up...


Here we have Gary Reed, CoFounder of Transfuzion with Rafael, chattin' with some fans... As I've mentioned before, Gary, Rafael, and a couple of other writers are lookin' for a few Great Artists... To embark on the often Perilous Adventure of, COMICS... Think you've got the chops to do it ??? You want it so bad, you can taste it ??? Then what are you waitin' for ??? Head right over to the
  • Transfuzion Website
  • and do it, to it... Send in some samples of your Sequential Art for them to peruse... Who knows ??? You might actually get so HUGE, you could quit your gig at POPEYE's...


    Next, is Nick Muntean, Protege of Rafael, Buddy Ol' Pal, and future "Wizard Top 10 Writer"... Nicky helped out at the HYPERTHETICAL Table with his visitin' friend John and made sure Rafael and I made it to the con on time a couple of those days... We also talked a little bit about our future project... Way later on that...


    Jon Knipping, Hyperthetical Partner, Writer, Designer, and all around Good Guy was there as well... He hooked up the ride Friday, makin' sure the Hype Table ran smoothly when I wasn't there, and previewin' his joint project "Ayomi" with artist Eric Draper (( Pictured below Jon ))... The preview looked Awesome guys, I can't wait...


    And the guy coddlin' his Ear, is artist Eric Draper... I met Eric at last years Wizard World, and was impressed with his pencil work... So I'm glad he's on this Fantastic Journey with Jon...


    All in All, it was a Really Good Con this year... Check in for more on other Creators, Costumes, Interviews, and ME next time, on "The Lonely Rice Chronicles"... Lonely Rice says, "Be there, or I'll kill you"...

    Later,

    Tony
