Rose City Comicon in Portland, Oregon. It was a good time, a short road trip with my little brother and GF, caught up with friends both new and old, set a high score on the basketball hoop at the Spirit of 77 bar, sold some Undertow (never as many as I'd like), and discovered some great new comics and people at the show. The place was full of weirdoes--my people--just the way I like it. If I saw you there and you stopped to talk about my book--thank you! If you bought my book--THANK YOU! People taking a chance with something new--something mine (and Ghosthill Greg's, and Gibson Quarter's)--you people are making it all worth it. We love you, and we are doing our damnedest to make something better for you each. and. every. time. Don't forget about us because we will not forget about you. That is the 7th Wave Comics/Luke Donkersloot MF'ing guarantee. Undertow is my light saber, if you would, and now that I've finally made it and achieved true Jedi status, it's just a matter of refining my connection with the Force. And I'm going to leave that analogy right there...
A couple of other Jedi (of a slightly different variety) attending the show, but fellow creators all. There is no feeling quite like creation.
The answer is not in the ending, but in your journey. Fellow weirdoes, story- and adventure-seekers--join me. It is going to be a good one.
Come see me in Tacoma at the Jet City Comic Show November 2nd, and the whole crew GQ, GH, and Adam Gorham will be with me at Emerald City Comicon March 28-30. Thanks for reading!
