Clarence and I have recently put together a collection of tongue-in-cheek, short, comic book stories called "it sure is a SUPER WORLD!" These stories originally appeared as back-up features in the first 3 "the Experts" comic books. Hopefully, we'll be able to offer this book soon through DIAMOND's catalog. So, if you like your superhero comics short-n-sweet, with a touch of satire, and you don't like to keep up with on-going series... ""it sure is a SUPER WORLD!" is just the book for you!
More details as they transpire!

I just spent the weekend in Nashville, TN. attending and promoting my comic book series at the "Nashville Horror and Comic Book Convention." It was a blast.
I met several nice people and made many new contacts. In regards to where the promoters of the convention placed me and my table, I got really lucky. The other vendors and presenters near me were extremely pleasant and down-to-earth folks. Across from my table was none other than Jackson Bostwick. Who? Bostwick played "Captain Marvel" on the CBS Saturday morning show, "SHAZAM!," in the early 1970s. He was a great guy and I talked to him quite a bit over the two days of the convention. He had his three-year-old daughter with him... who I ended up baby-sitting periodically when Bostwick would disappear to go hob-nob.
The star of the show was B-Movie/TV legend, John Saxon. He still looked just as intimidating as he did in every movie and TV show he appeared in in the 70s. I didn't get a chance to talk with him... but others assured me he was a really nice and charming man.
I ended up selling over 20 copies of "the Experts" and gave several copies and contact info to a marketing guy from Marvel Comics. Who knows? I think I blew about $150 on comic books and action figures.
All in all... it was a very fun and informative time. I'll definitely do more conventions in the near future.
