I just want to say that Kevin O’Neill is a Prince Among Men — we had an absolutely wonderful signing with him last night, and he was extremely gracious with his time, given virtually every person who showed significant “face time”, answering their questions, and doing quick sketches for each and every person.
What a class act!
If you’re down in the San Jose area, Kev appears at Hijinx Comics today (Monday) from 5-8, then he goes to Las Vegas and Alternative Reality Comics [edit: and Comic Oasis, sorry, Derek!] on Tuesday to wrap up the tour.
I suspect Jeff will be along before TOO long with pics of last night’s signing.
We’ve got an EXTREMELY limited number of copies left over that Kev signed (though no sketches, sorry!), so if you haven’t been able to score your copy yet, feel free to email me and see if we can accommodate you.
THANKS AGAIN, KEVIN!!!!
Also last night was Alan Moore, art spiegelman, and Dan Clowes on the Simpsons — if you didn’t see it, at least for the moment it is up on YouTube, and I thought it was perhaps the funniest 10 minutes of Simpsons I’ve watched this decade. Oooh, let me try that embedded thing….
Let’s hope that worked…
Even my wife, Tzipora, who only barely understands comics or comics culture, was howling in laughter at this segment.
Weird ending to the episode, though — it looks at though the Android’s Dungeon is closed permanently?!?
Anyway, WATCHMEN BABIES IN V FOR VACATION is a huge winner of a joke!
[Edit #2: I just noticed the LOST GIRLS poster in the background of the clip -- nice, Fox is advertising pornography, w00t!]
