CRACK BANG BOOM CON, Argentina--PART TWO WHY IT ALWAYS PAYS TO TALK TO STRANGERS... 10.21.10 DAY TWO... Now i know that your mother told you not to talk to strangers, but here’s why it pays... First, I’m at breakfast in the hotel and this big guy in an Green Lantern t-shirt (ok, it was really a t-shirt from our competitors, but i’m trying to work in a plug here!) approaches me to say that he loves Vertigo, owns a store in LIMA, PERU where he’s organizing a show and would i like to be a guest next year?”.... hmm...let me check my schedule...uhhh, YEAH!

CRACK BANG BOOM CON, Argentina -- PART ONE (now with handy phrase guide!) OCTOBER 2009 So i’m sitting in this lovely outdoor cafe in Lucca, Italy eating this insanely great sliced-steak with Eduardo Risso (co-creator/artist of 100 BULLETS) and he says to me out of the blue, “Would you be interested in coming to a comic convention in my hometown of Rosario, Argentina next fall?”...hmm...let me check my schedule...uhhh, YEAH! 10.20.10
On Wednesday, we teased a few images from a project Jim Lee, Rebekah Isaacs, Fabio Moon, Ryan Kelly, John Paul Leon, Lee Bermejo, Philip Bond, Eduardo Risso and Dave Gibbons are all working on for Vertigo in 2010. Well, if they piqued your interest, you’ll be happy to know, (if you haven't guessed already or were sly like CBR/ROBOT 6), they’re from DMZ #50. That’s right, I said 50.
Lot’s happened this week. Here's a roundup of those not to be missed. LARGEHEARTED BOY posts Jeff Lemire's fantastic music playlist for THE NOBODY. In his introduction Jeff writes, “I've always preferred sad songs. They don't make me sad, they just make me "feel more." Now, that's something I can totally relate to. Check it out!
100 BULLETS...I KNOW IT”S OVER I mean I know we had our rough patches in the past – and you’ve disappeared on me before, sometimes months at a time – but this feels different. Like it’s really over. Ten long years – all the love, tears, laughs, fights, sex, revenge – and you’re just gonna vanish on me? Nice.
