First of all, I have some great news for everyone who has been trying to get me to come out to Chicago for another convention appearance: It looks as if C2E2 is going to be a go for April 16-18.

I’m absolutely thrilled about this. The show has a tremendous buzz about it, and I’m really looking forward to getting back to Chicago!

As I’ve indicated earlier, I’ll also be doing New York Comic Con in October. And I’m committed to Comic Con International in San Diego.

If you’d like me to come to a convention near you, please write to the promoter of your nearest convention and ask them to have me appear as a guest. You’d be amazed at how much power an e-mail like that wields.

Right now, my tentative schedule looks like this:

BMO Round Up Centre
Calgary, Alberta
April 24-25
