Kudos to Mark Walters. I stand up from my chair and begin the slow clap. Others join in. Mark, you brought in some great guests. This Dallas Comic Con might be the best one ever.

There's Tim Sale, Adam Hughes, Michael Golden, Mark Brooks, Todd Nauck, Terry Moore, Jim Mahfood, Mike Huddleston, Tom Feister, Matt Sturges, Renee Witterstaetter, Harold Ledoux, plus lots of local talent like James O'Barr, Brian Denham, Kerry Gamill, Josh Howard, Cal Slayton, Joe Eisma, and Brent Peeples.

From film and television, we have Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia from Buffy!), Adam West (TV Batman!), Sean Patrick Flanery (Boondock Saints!), and some tall dude from Twilight.

The cast of The Variants will be in attendance and G4TV's Next Woman of the Web Action Flick Chick, Katrina Hill.

I'll be there, but I'm a regular. Beyond all the usual stuff, I will have copies of ONE NIGHT STAND for anyone who needs it. I'll have the KARMA INCORPORATED SCRIPT BOOK, which is only available at conventions. I'm handing out postcards to promote WE'VE NEVER MET and SOUVENIR OF DALLAS. I'm fairly sure that my artistic cohorts Paul Milligan and Brock Rizy will be seated on either side of me -- available for commissioned sketches. Chad Thomas said he'd visit on Saturday. Maybe we can convince him to sit for a while and do a sketch or two?

Bring money. Meet a celebrity or two. Ask Cordelia to sign your Buffy Season 3 DVD. Get some sketches from Paul, Brock, and Chad. That's a good weekend.
