FLASHBACK: Surprise Party, Comic-Con Style

(Back row, left to right) Mark Haynes, Joe James, Kevin Brennan, (middle row) Steve Geppi, yours truly, Melissa Bowersox, (front row) Mark Wheatley, and a ton of people not in the picture – including Adam Philips, Tom Mason, Billy Tucci, Deborah Tucci, Michael Solof, Rita Jackson, Kevin Topham and most importantly Rosina Ally – celebrated my promotion to Vice-President of Publishing for Gemstone Publishing at Sally’s in San Diego.

Mark Wheatley did the amazing illustration of me.

Thanks to Missy for engineering the whole thing. And it was a complete surprise to me, which is no small feat. And thanks, too, to everyone I just left out of that list. I can only plead Guide deadline fatigue at the moment.


FLASHBACK: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in San Diego

Our friend, the Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.: yours truly, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Ming-Na Wen, and Geppi's Entertainment Museum's Michael Solof at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2013 -- all three graduates of Mt. Lebanon High School's class of 1981... and all at Comic-Con on business. How cool is that?

Over the years, we've been happy to see Ming on ER or voicing Mulan for Disney or in any number of other roles, but this one is near and dear to our hearts.

FLASHBACK: Even CHRIS COLUMBUS Can Get CREEPY

At the New York Comic-Con in 2012 to moderate the Creepy & Eerie panel, and one of the participants was producer-director Chris Columbus. He's on board for the Creepy film, and I got to tell him how much I enjoyed Only The Lonely (in addition to his other, higher profile work).


FLASHBACK: Getting CREEPY at COMIC-CON

Academy Award-winning documentary filmmakers Josh Braun (left) and Dan Braun (right) with yours truly just after the Creepy & Eerie panel at Comic-Con International: San Diego 2013. Not only do they have acclaim in the film world, they're the co-owners of the classic horror magazines (and their new incarnations as well). They have been kind enough to ask me to play moderator for these panels both in San Diego and in New York.


FLASHBACK: The MILESTONES Exhibit Opens at GEM

Michael Davis, yours truly, Mark Wheatley, Marc Hempel, Denys Cowan, Maggie Thompson, and Steve Geppi at Geppi’s Entertainment Museum on Friday, December 13, 2013, to celebrate the launch of the Milestones exhibit. Lots of other great folks were there, too!



FLASHBACK: WV Pop Con 2012

Another flashback, this one at the first WV Pop Con, with (left to right) Neil Vokes, Mark Wheatley, yours truly, Bob Tinnell, and Bo Hampton... what a fun group!


FLASHBACK: On The Set with BILLY TUCCI

Here's a photo from the set of SOME TROUBLE OF A SERIOUS NATURE, Billy Tucci's award-winning short film, my only acting gig. It was a blast!
