Your favorite CB is back with a new installment of The Life of High Adventure. Last time I left you we were still stuck in 2009 — a year that felt in many ways like a vortex. Time expanded and contracted. Parallel universes were born and then died. Physical media eroded. New media fought back with the combined might of 20 Twilight vampires shimmering the sunlight. No one felt as if they won. Well, maybe everyone except for James Cameron.
We try to not look back here at The Life of High Adventure. Unless vodka is flowing through our blood, that is — then we remember a time in a Nordic past… No, neigh, we like to push forward in the name of progress! In the spirit of adventure. For we are warriors and our blades are sharpened, ready for battle. Ready to win new readers over one by one.
To help spread the word about the good fight I have decided to hit the road aggressively in 2010. I am pleased to announce appearance dates and give a few notes about each show I’ll be attending. Some spots are old favorites, others present new adventures that will be told in the annals.
So, without further ado:
CB’s The Life of High Adventure 2010 Tour
Long Beach Comic Expo
Long Beach, CA
I wasn’t able to make the first Long Beach Comic Con last fall. I heard nothing but good things, so when this one day show popped up I had to give it a shot. I’ll be there sharing a table with Contropussy and 20% artist Christian Meesey. I got a preview of the first issue of Contropussy and it’s quite good.

Emerald City Comicon
March 13 – 14
It would take a lot for me to miss this show. I’d have to be hunting the last dragon or sipping margaritas at a private island hideaway. Jim Demonakos and crew put on one of the best shows you’ll ever attend. And I’m serious about that. It’s amazing. I’ll be there with Super Frat creator Tony DiGerolamo. You can find out more about his work here: http://www.superfrat.com
April 16 – 18
Finally a show in downtown Chicago! I’m not sure what to expect yet but I’m excited. I’ll be there supporting my good friend Josh Blaylock of PopCult fame. I’ve heard there will be an amazing party thrown by that group to celebrate the show. You can find highlights of their last party in San Diego here: http://www.youtube.com/popculttv
May 27 – 30
Another amazing event with the most professional convention staff I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The show is moving to a much larger location this year to accommodate attendance growth.
June 4 – 6
Shelton Drum is one of the classiest guys in comics. Heroes Con reflects that. I had to miss it last year but am thrilled to be returning.
San Antonio, TX
June 18 – 20
This is the first year for this show. The promoters have shown a lot of enthusiasm and are putting together quite the guest list. San Antonio is a big damn town. Could bode well!
So there you have it, the first half of the 2010 campaign. I hit the road with a purpose: To win over new readers. I look forward to hopefully seeing you at some of the events. Don’t be a stranger and stop by and say hi.
Convention season is upon us and adventure awaits!
