Work continues on The Shark Knight Surfaces, and artist Chris Fason and I are introducing another new maritime super hero to the Hero Happy Hour universe — Seabird.
Since he is a nautical-themed super hero like the original Kingfish, the question is… How long does Seabird have before he is killed off?
Yeah, I don’t know if that post title really makes any sense. It’s just what came to mind regarding this post. Is it too early to plan what to wear this year to San Diego Comic-Con? Have I ever planned what I was going to wear for anything?
For awhile now I’ve been toying with a t-shirt design that would feature a “Comic-Con Badge.” I even tried designing an image of the lanyard, but it never looked quite right. I worked up two “badge” designs…
(Click on images for larger view.)
I worked up a “Con” logo that — let’s say, “pays tribute to” a familiar convention logo, but also recalls the history of comic books. For the logo image I included the left lens of the X-Ray Spex that were advertised in almost every comic book that I bought off the spinner rack at 7-11 for 35¢ way back in the day. The “Red Badge” has a definite message, while the “Blue Badge” is just fun. By the way, the bar-code should read “comic book fan” when scanned.
As of the typing of this post, the “Red Badge” is available as a t-shirt or sticker at Redbubble. I might make the “Blue Badge” available as well if there seems to be any interest. But, on to the subject of this post — the Con-Fan T-shirt that I’ll be wearing to San Diego Comic-Con this year…
Hopefully I can convince another 29 individuals to do the same, or at least just buy the shirt even if they’re not going to Comic-Con and just happen to be comic fans. The Comic-Fan T-Shirt is currently looking for funding at TeePublic.com. If 30 people like and purchase the design the shirt will get made. I’m going to give this route a try first before considering other printing options. Any help spreading the word about my Con-Fan T-Shirt is appreciated. See ya in San Diego this July.
