Jackie with booth assistant Diane Granito.
Comic–Con International: San Diego 2015 has come and gone (after it arrived early this year!). Lovely Wife Jackie and I had a great time . . . as usual! It was nice to see old friends and meet and greet our readers. Jackie debuted her new book, Comic Book People 2 and basked in the oohs and ahhs of comic pros and fans alike! I didn’t have a new Supernatural Law book this year, but the Exhibit A Press booth did feature our new French and Spanish language editions. And, of course, I had plenty of fresh monster cameos (complete with easels!) on hand. Hope you enjoy the following photos from in and around the Big*Show!
