Hey, Gang! Just wanted to let you know that I'll be appearing at the 1st annual Windy City Comicon on Saturday, October 25th, from 10 am until 6 pm. This one day con will be held at The Center on Halsted, 3656 N. Halsted in beautiful Chicago!

I'll be signing whatever comics you have of mine from my oh-so-illustrious 20 years in the business, and I'll be selling prints and minis, as well as previewing some new projects.

Joining me will be my long-time companion (no, not like that, people!), the very talented artist Antonio (Tony) Maldonado, who will be selling his own prints and minicomics and drawrin' sketches and such.

Tony and I have been hard at work on our newest graphic novel titled BLACKBIRDS, which is a serio comic thriller about two comics creators named, well, Raf and Tony, who get lost while returning from a convention and wind up in deep, deep doodoo! We'll have a plethora of pages from the book for you to peruse!

Other guests include my pals Doug Klauba, Len Kody, Hilary Barta, Andrew Kudelka, Alex Wald and more!

This is a very important con for us, the creators as well as for you fans; the focus on conventions lately has been on film and tv and celebrities and less on actual comics, and Windy City Comicon hopes to change all that by allowing you the fan to meet and greet the folks who actually put together the source material for those movies and TV shows!

There will also be retailers and gaming galore on hand, so get there early and stay late!

Tickets are only FIVE BUCKS! That's good and cheap, people! So drag a friend along, won't you?
