I’ve been home from SD for 2 days and I’m just feeling up to recapping. It was an excellent, exhausting time.
Friday at the con was first about getting in on a Monster Worship sale for these dudes:
I’ve admired Jeff Lamm’s work for a long time but it always sells out (and gets expensive on eBay). This was a chance to get a Greasebat and some of his pals at an easy price. I also impulse bought Johnny Ryan’s “Cannibal Fuckface” (in a different colorway than that link). It’s pretty cool but it’s the only thing I got this weekend that I wasn’t 100% on.
The other big Friday thing was watching David Choe and Asa Akira (don’t google her from work) do a live DVDASA podcast from the floor. It’s sweary and NSFW so take care with clicks.
It was weird and kind of gross with a hint of nudity. Later, they all did a signing at a yogurt shop in Poway, about half an hour outside of San Diego. We went out there thinking that it might be lightly attended since it was so far from the Con and he’s isn’t someone I’d immediately associate with comics in general. We were wrong.
We waited in this line for almost an hour. When we got up front they were giving away three posters that they were all signing *and* David Choe bought yogurt for everyone. It was nice to end the night with a sweet treat.
