The Adorable Progeny is such a fan.


So, I'm breaking my recent streak of seclusion and going to an actual comics show. I'll be on a panel on Friday on adapting public works into graphic novels, and generally hanging out around the Harper-Collins booth, promoting The Gift of the Magi.

I haven't been to a show in while, largely because I've been busy being a father. But I'm also profoundly uncomfortable at conventions. You know how, when you're hosting a party, you can't enjoy it because you're making sure everyone is having a good time and there's enough ice and no one is doing anything unspeakable on the carpet? Conventions are basically me feeling like that for 3 days. I need to take Chris Haley lessons on how to enjoy these things. As it is, the only time I feel comfortable is when people come up to me and ask me to draw something.

So, please, if you see me, come up and ask me to draw something.

Also, if you have any advice on where I can find some good whitefish, let me know. I do like some nice whitefish salad on a bagel.
