For this weeks post I want to talk about the Nashville Comic and Horror Festival that is taking place at the Nashville Fairgrounds October 1st and 2nd. It’s being hosted by Marc Ballard’s Comic City and lots of big people will be there like Mitch Breitweiser (artist for Captain America), Elizabeth Breitweiser, (colorist for Agents of ATLAS, Hulk, and Captain America: Patriot) Eric Layton (creator of Grim Ghost), and Billy Tackett world renowned for his Uncle Sam Zombie!
Dr. Gangrene and his band, Spookhand, will be there as will local band, Creeping Crud.
Also yours truly will be there. I’ll be hocking my books, Dog World and Memoirs of the Walking Dead and holding a drawing for a mint in the box action figure. I’d like to get feedback from comic geeks or anyone that reads comics on what figure should be in the drawing. The choices are: Black Lantern Wonder Woman, Black Lantern Batman, DC Universe Zatanna or Marvel Selects Unmasked and scarred Deadpool. Leave a comment as to what figure YOU would want and the winning figure will be in the drawing. And guess what else, you don’t need to buy a book at the show to enter. Just show up and drop your name into the proverbial hat. You really can’t beat winning a free kick ass action figure. Here are the choices:
As an added incentive to show up, for the first five people who stop by my table and identify themselves as my Twitter friends will get a copy of which ever book they’d like for FREE! I can autograph too if you so desire. The autograph part is up to you.
So stop by and say, “what’s up, you sick bastich!” if you’re a Middle Tennessee Tweep or Zweep or just happen to be in town. Admission is a flat $5, which is pretty reasonable once you factor in all the coolness that will be in attendance. I would really love to see you there and meet you face to face!
