Whew! Last week was a complete attack of post-production hell here at the Department, with unexpected day job work completely swamping Janice and I. The emergencies have passed- these things are always and emergency, you see- and we’re gearing up to pick up the slack here.
Last weekend we checked out the Long Beach Comic Expo, which was a nifty (if small) dealer-centric show. We caught up with our friends from Golden Apple Comics, scored a pile of cheap trades, and I nabbed a sweet Hellblazer cover print from Tim Bradstreet. Then we caught the second night of Paul & Storm and Jonathan Coulton at Largo at the Coronet Theater, which had bonus appearances by Chris Hardwick and Wil Wheaton. More on that in another post.
This weekend was mostly the work avalanche, but I did have a chance to get out Friday night and have a food adventure with my friend Dave, a food blogger both in his own right and also for the OC Weekly. I’ve been meaning to pimp his work here, even though it’s unrelated to what we do, because he’s a cool guy and has really changed the way I think about food in the last 6 years.
Anyway! That’s where we’ve been. Coming this week, the post I mentioned above plus clearing out some comics reviews before Wednesday. And then more comics! And more reviews!
