Comic Con 2013: Come See Us There!

Tom's going to be signing every day at the con, and he'd love to meet you if you're going. (Sam will also be on hand)

San Diego Comic Con 2013 is upon us! I’ll be at the convention, every single day, and if any of you lunatics are going to be there, too, I’d love to meet you in the flesh! If you see me on the convention floor, don’t hesitate to say “Yo!” and throw a hand up for me to high five.

Or, if you’d like to go about this a little more efficiently, you can drop by any of my signings…

In addition to the copies of HYBRID BASTARDS! I’ll be signing at the new Boom/Archaia booth (#2229), I’ll also be putting my signature on oodles of goodies for MAX STEEL at the VIZ Media booth (#2819). Yep, you read that right. As I mentioned on a recent episode of THE VICE PIT, I’m writing the official comics version of the new Disney XD toon for VIZ Kids. The book isn’t coming out until early 2014 but, don’t worry - - they hype train will be rolling straight through to then!

While I’m at Boom/Archaia’s booth, I’ll also be joining my creative comrades, Chris Northrop and Jeff Stokely, for some signings of their new graphic novel THE REASON FOR DRAGONS (as I contributed a most medieval back-up story to the book). I’ve also got at least one signing with funnyman Dan Fogler, since I’m working on spooky short for the next installment of his whacked-out comedy hororr anthology, MOON LAKE.

Hit me up on at my Twitter handle - - @tompinchuk - - if you're there. The signings are as follows...

7/17 - WED

6:00 - 7:00 PM [Boom/Archaia Booth #2229]

7/18 - THURS

1:30 – 3:00 PM [Boom/Archaia Booth #2229]

5:00 – 6: 00 PM [Boom/Archaia Booth #2229]

7/19 - FRI

5:00 – 6: 00 PM [Boom/Archaia Booth #2229]

7/20 - SAT

5:00 – 6: 00 PM [Boom/Archaia Booth #2229]

7/21 - SUN

2:00 – 3:00 PM [Boom/Archaia Booth #2229]

3:30 – 4:30 PM [VIZ Booth #2819]

Anybody wondering, “Hey, where’s Sam in all of this?” can breath easy. The dude’s going to be at the con for most of its duration, and if you ever find me on the floor, you can be sure Sam isn't be too far away. We’re actually going to be taping some special VICE PIT episodes while we’re at the con, so stay tuned!

Also, don’t worry about content on the site. Sam and I both burned the night oils this past weekend, working ahead enough to make sure that the AV stream goes uninterrupted.

Have fun storming the castle! Wish I could be there with you...maybe someday the site will be big enough for you to come to a con in the southeast or I will have enough money to go to one of the cons in the west.
