It was an absolute blast– Bissette is as wonderful a speaker as he is an artist, and his tremendous enthusiasm for the subject shone through the whole time. His collection is amazing, and the stories were great too. If you’re in the Upper Valley, the artwork and a small catalog with Bissette’s descriptions of each page are on display through October 16.
(Why yes, I was the one who had the Tales of the TMNT cover he showed the inks for, why do you ask?)
At any rate, not only am I half-inspired to write comics again (and maybe even– eek!– draw), I was inspired to open up this blog, and maybe I’ll keep up with it this time!
