Check out Dread Central & Action-Figure at NYCC!

Why would someone lug 50 to 70 boxes of swag into a show, none of which is for sale, and give those things away for 25 hours or so, over three days??!! The idea is simple. All year long, we work with excellent companies promoting killer projects they hope to bring to you. When we get the opportunity to set up an event, we take them with us. Run over to booth 1161 at New York Comic Con 09 and get in on the goods!

ooo...boxes of Viz canvas bags just showed up. I knew people would have missed this dearly with Viz's absence so we called them up and made sure they were on board. You know how valuable bags and rubber bands become at conventions??!!

Paul, Morgan and her man Dean, Heather B. The Creetch and I are sitting this one out; shame, too, cause it'd be a damn fine year to go!

Ok, I almost had a cardiac arrest there as I thought the heading for this article read, "Check out Dread Central action figures... ".

Someone needs to get those babies into production!!!

I will have a lighter that pops out of my chest so the children can light up their cigarettes. My head will also pop off to reveal a utility knife. Functional!!
