Comic Con Saturday

It's Saturday morning and I'm getting ready to head to the Con. Yesterday was a whirlwind... lots of great stuff going on. 

We kicked off the day with a signing from Peter David, author of Writing for Comics with Peter David, who was great fun. IMPACT Books Publicity Manager Greg Hatfield got a chance to interview Peter--an interview which I'll share with you once I get time to post it (I'm kind of in a rush this morning)

I also got a chance to chat with Zombie Haiku author Ryan Mecum, who is signing in our booth this morning--I'm planning to see if Ryan has any advice for creating book trailers, because he did such a cool one for his book.

Plus, I talked with academy-award winning film concept artist and designer Doug Chiang, author of Mechanika. Doug has worked on movies like Star Wars episodes I & II, Beowulf, Polar Express, War of the Worlds.

Finally, I interviewed John Howe, renowned Tolkien artist about his thoughts on Comic Con, and creative inspiration.

I look forward to sharing some of the great interviews I taped... sorry for the teaser... I hope to post them soon.
