We rocked the humid walls of PACC and came home happy with some new comic associates, and, hopefully, some Comicverse fans. I love PACC because people actually stop and ask you about your work and the process of writing, and what it’s like for a writer and artist to collaborate.

I appreciate everyone who picked up The Comicverse #1, a print, or a copy of Secret Prison. I had some wonderful conversations with people, and got to see lots of funky, attractive people with wonderful tattoos, long hair or no hair!

Dre Time was gracious and cool as always, with her Dirty Diamonds troupe and after party. Chris Grillo, whom we met at the Great Allentown Comicon, trekked all the way down in the rain to visit. My brother and his girlfriend got rained on along with my husband, and had a blast. I got to meet Cyn Why? and got a super awesome Captain Picard original done by her in her latest book. Also saw my friend David Aronson and some other peeps I know! Sat next to Curls Studio and bent their ear on Screenwriting and forcing myself to be creative more often. Had convos with a playwright, an environmentalist, and some very cool artists that Steve knows.

See links below to peoples sites mentioned in this post. They are all awesome, creative, and probably moldy from all the rain and humidity we endured for 7 plus hours. I know I am! 😛

About thecomicverse

Steve Peters received a Xeric Grant in 1996, which he used to self-publish Awakening Comics. In 2006, he won the Gene Day Memorial Prize for a magical realist comic called Chemistry. He met Bianca Alu-Marr at an open mic in 2003 (Steve was playing music and doing the sound, Bianca was reading her poetry). The Comicverse is one of many projects they have collaborated on, and their most popular. Bianca is the writer and and Steve is the artist. Sometimes Bianca writes and plots the stories; many stories are co-plotted by Bianca and Steve.
