Wilmington's Star News did a nice (if not surface level) piece on this past weekend's Free Comic Book Day event at Fanboy Comics, discussing the event itself and all that Fanboy had planned for the comic book celebration. Above is a picture from the article, featuring shop owner Thomas Gilbert pretending to organize comics that I know he already had out and in order.
The entire article can be found here, but let's be honest - all you're concerned about is the brief and fleeting reference to both me and Teddy and the Yeti. Well, okay, I hate to disappoint:
Fanboy is also sponsoring an appearance by Wilmington-based comic artist and fantasy illustrator Tom Fleming, who’ll give a slide show and retrospective on his work with DC, Marvel and others at 6 p.m. May 10 at the Northeast Regional Library, 1241 Military Cutoff Road.
Local self-published comic creators Bill Cofflin (Cape Fear Comics), Jeff McClelland (“Teddy and the Yeti”) and Mike Pigford (“Bleedfish”) will be on hand for a question-and-answer session and comic signings. During the event, Fanboy will hold the drawing in its raffle to raise funds for the New Hanover County Public Library.
This is a reiteration of something I posted a little while ago regarding the New Hanover County Library panel that takes place on Monday, May 10th. I met with Tom Fleming at the Pittsburgh Comicon and we talked about what I could possibly bring to the appearance. Beyond my general attractiveness, that is. I'm looking forward to it!
