-Dave Lapp: Really, really intense guy. He was in the room I was in, within listening and view, and I was completely mesmerized by his explaining the finer details of his awesome real life comic Window to various folks who he'd draw in. A very magnetic personality. I should've talked to him more than I did, for God's sake, cause he knew who I was, and he gave me the latest issue for free. Dave, you are seriously cool.
My Whole "Holy shit I suck." thing: Was really in my head when I saw some of the powerhouses in my room (Christ, we're talking James Jean (a lot of Vertigo cover work...), Jon Lewis, Rina Piccolo, Brendan Buford, the aforementioned Dave Lapp and the House of Twelve crew to name a few...I was like, "Oh shit, I am so not worthy of these guys, man!!!" I'd later note I probably did more business than some of them, and really, we were all comics folk. No one was laying any judgement down, and by midday Day one, I was allll good, man...

I Got To Hang With My Pals: Nothing beats hanging with your friends. It was great to meet awesomeyoder and trade books with him, it was great to see Tyrone and Alana McCarthy, sach, and ttallan. Even better, I got to hang out with chipzdarsky and Ben Shannon and other cool folks after the show. I also got to crash at Chip's cool pad, and see photos of his girlfriend in her skivvies (reference for a job Chip was doing...)!! Did I thank you for that Chip? Thank you, man.Thank.YOU.
I Left Feeling Great About Comics: Which seemed to be the common theme among most folks who've posted their accounts online. I honestly meant it when I said before I've never attended such a show. It was freakin' magic, baby!!!

I'm sure something else will pop in my head later. There was just too much good going on at this gig.WOOOOO!!!!!!


    Looking at my last post, you would think perhaps old Jay had slipped a cog. "he's almost 45 fuckin' years old!", you think, "You tell me he's only…


    Strange.It took a text message conversation with Canadian cartoonist Joe Ollmann to cement in reality something my mind had perhaps already accepted…


    Another preview of a story from my upcoming book. A few words of explanation(so you can make sense of it here:it will be explained in other stories…
