In any case, the MIX WEEKEND began with a screening of Scott Pilgrim vs the World. I was unable to make it to this as I worked. Also, not being a huge fan of the comic, I don't know that I could enjoy it as a film either. Lot's of folks did though I am sure!

Dylan Williams and I ran over to Big Brain for pre-MIX festivities. Specifically, 3 signings. One of Zak Sally's new book, Sammy the Mouse; Will Dinski's Fingerprints; Aaron Renier's The Unsinkable Walker Bean.
I snatched a copy of each. It's the second time I bought Will's story, and well worth it. The earlier version I had also came in a hardcover, but was in black and white and limited to 35 copies as it was hand-bound.

Sam Sharpe. One of many talented cartoonists that we would be having as house guests shortly.
BT Livermore and Banner Year Press were some of the first place's I stopped. Anyone with a 'stache should take a looksy here for friendly write up on his Man's Face Stuff line. Great stuff!
Meghan, Nic, and Sarah holding down the fort while Justin and I are probably at a panel (either the one with John Porcellino or with Tom Kaczynski).
We premiered GMN4 at the show. This was the full final version. I have been neglectful on getting this out to Shenton, shops, contributors, supporters, reviewers. I will amend that shortly.

Ian McDuffie and Lane Westvine. Information is scant from a brief scan of the internets, but they both had some promising comics on hand...

Neil Brideau and Sam Sharpe Mega Bussed it to the Xpo together with Aaron Renier. Interesting note: Sam, Neil and Eric Schuster were all next to each other at MIX. Why is that interesting? 'Cause they're all redheads! It's uncanny and weird!

Top Shelf tabling. Check out the excellent signage! Also, they are having some amazing sale going on there now with ultra cheap Eddie Campbell and Alan Moore book's as part of the sale. Check it out! The sale ends this Friday! Had I a few extra bones I know I'd be spending 'em there.
JP Beaty. Keep an eye on this talented kid. His output is top notch. As we were just talking about Alan Moore, his latest is the Adventures of Alan Moore. Pick it up!

Sen Yai Sen Lek. One of my favorite places to go for food stuffs. And they are the exclusive carrier of my favorite beer, the Flat Earth Xanadu. Here is another strange pic of me and little Maggie.
Tom Kaczynski eating a whole slop of noodle's while Aaron Renier watches on.
calling the cops!
