Back from Comic-Con!

2010 marked my 25th consecutive year attending Comic-Con in San Diego. I marvel at how the event has grown--- mutated, even. It's a blast, to be sure--- and it's also a grind!

My pal Matt Price, a comic book  retailer and a professional journalist for The Oklahoman newspaper, has a terrific and informative blog with news from San Diego. Find it by clicking here!

The secret is out!

There's an announcement over on from our pal Erik Larsen. This is a deal Erik and I came up with when he visited Flying Colors for Free Comic Book Day in May.

The big news is that Flying Colors' very own super-hero---  CAPTAIN FOUR-COLOR will be featured in Savage Dragon #165! That's right, fans! Created by Jeff Bonivert and yours truly, CAP FC will be in on the Dragon action this October.

To make things even sweeter, Erik Larsen has drawn an EXCLUSIVE and limited edition variant cover featuring CAP FC landing a more than savage blow on the Dragon's jaw! 

More details soon!

Peace 'n' cool comics!

Here are a couple of photos from our Betty & Veronica Summer Spectacular---featuring artist DAN PARENT. More can be found on the Flying Colors Fan Page on Facebook...just click here!
