Good Morning! It’s just past 8:30 AM and I’m here to take over the insanity that is Blog@Newsarama. I’m in the middle of organizing my thoughts for the day but wanted to take a quick spin in Parkin’s car, so my first post will be a bit light on content but big on laughs.
This year’s Small Press Expo wrapped up yesterday in it’s fancy new digs – Heidi’s got the rundown and list of Ignatz Winners but in minicomic dude and Ignatz nominee Pat Lewis already has his photo diary up for all to see showing a severe case of hooliganry around SPX Guest of Honor and Ignatz Winner, Tony Millionaire, bless his heart…
Look! I got my picture taken with guest-of-honor and Ignatz award-winner Tony Millionaire. I think he maybe had a few drinks in him?
Imagine my surprise when, later that evening, I went upstairs to discover that Mr. Millionaire had abandoned the copy of my comic that I’d given him on an end table in the hallway, along with his Ignatz award. I felt that both items should go to someone more appreciative: me.
After pretending to be an Ignatz winner all night, I decided to give the award back.
For shame, Pat. For shame.
Back soon with more.
