It's true, after a grueling flight over a day-and-a-half, I am back on United States soil after spending 2 1/2 months in Vietnam! And after just one day of rest, I am back on the road for the weekend, this time to the great city of Chattanooga, Tennessee. This weekend will be an exciting one for me for two reasons:
1. It will be the second time that I will be a featured guest at ConNooga (the first time was 2 years ago), and
2. Characters from the Switch are used as the exclusive, official artwork for this year (which you have seen above before)!
But the really cool part is that this art is featured everywhere on convention grounds! Here are a few shots:
For guests attending, there's a free ConNooga app for iOS and Android that will have all the information about the show at your fingertips including show hours, panels, and more! The cool part about this app is that you can create a profile and connect with other attendees of the show! Just search "ConNooga" and you should find this app easily.
This morning (Friday the 24th) show promoter Todd Patton and I did a brief appearance on the local news to help spread the word about the show (pardon my bloodshot eyes):
Finally, it is our pleasure to finally reveal an exclusive peek at the Doug Mahnke alternate cover artwork for our graphic novel The Switch:
I really love it, I literally just saw this yesterday. It was a great "welcome back home" gift. The mirror image of my regular front cover is a cool idea, and Keith--being no stranger to inking Doug on Green Lantern among other titles-- did a bang-up job with the inks. Major thanks to Doug for his generosity--being friends with him for over 25 years has its perks! And I can't forget to thank Switch backer Eric Marshall --who pledged at this reward level to keep the original Mahnke cover art!
Now that I'm back home from the long vacation, expect to see regular blog updates again...thanks for tuning in and hanging in there...! :)
