Look at the photograph down below. It’s another perfectly beautiful day in San Diego. We’re here for the annual San Diego ComicCon. It’s an event I’ve been attending since the days of the El Cortez Hotel. Some people love the Con and some hate it. In any event it continues to be a blast for me. Even this jaded old veteran can still get excited when I watch the celebrities embark from their limos near the rear of the convention center.
Needless to say, we all had a ball at last night’s panel discussion. It was such a delight to be joined onstage with filmmakers Erik Sharky, Michael Fiore and composer, Ryan Shore. And, it was awesome to have my pals and colleagues, Tom Sito, Leo Sullivan, Gary Trousdale, Paul Dini and Ken Mitchroney share the stage with me. I have so much respect for these guys and what they’ve accomplished in their careers. To have them show up at the San Diego ComicCon for me was truly an honor. We could easily have talked for another two hours because we had so much to share. I’m willing most of the audience would have been willing to stay. However, rules are rules and the Con decides when a panel is over…it’s over.
Tomorrow, it will back onstage for the annual “QuickDraw” hosted by Mark Evanier. I’ll be joined onstage by the world’s fastest cartoonist, Sergio Aragonés. Sadly, our colleague and pal, Scott Shaw! will not be joining us this year because of health reasons. We’re looking forward to Scott’s return next year. It’s hardly a ComicCon without Scott Shaw!
