    • The story behind the Rich Buckler/George Perez 2014 Team-Up D D writes: ALBUQUERQUE COMIC CON 2014 (11-12 Jan 2014) Albuquerque, New Mexico Sad day yesterday (20-May-2017). We lost a legendary comic artist. When I had an opportunity to meet Rich Buckler for the first time at the 2014 ACC, I knew I had to get a commission from him. So I contacted him prior to the show, and arranged 2 commissions. One was the penciled Joker which I have already posted in my Joker gallery, and the second was this one. The concept for this commission was that, George Perez (one of my all-time favorite artists) was going to be in attendance at the 2014 ACC also. I knew that George was mentored by Rich ...

    Texas Comicon hosts celebrities and comic book talents at S.A. Shrine Auditorium

    Don Poenisch couldn’t have rocked a more appropriate outfit Saturday at the San Antonio Shrine Auditorium for his first comic book convention.

    (excerpt)

    Numerous sequential art talents were also on hand to put the “comic” in Texas Comicon. The highlight: veteran DC and Marvel Comics artist George Pérez, who made his first appearance in San Antonio to sign books from his decades-long career and draw sketches for fans.

    “The fan community (here) has been very friendly,” Pérez said. “I’m very happy. I always rate a convention by the lack of blisters from twiddling my thumbs.”

    With Texas Comic Con in San Antonio coming up, I want to post my convention policy in order to formally answer questions I've been asked the last few weeks. I will try to provide this info before all my shows so please excuse what will likely be multiple repeats of this post:

    George Pérez’s Convention Policy
    I always try to set up at a convention one hour before the convention opens to the general public. This way I am available for sketches, autographs and photographs for dealers, staff and those with VIP Passes that allow them early entry. (I really see no point in fans purchasing a VIP Pass and not having any of the guest artists there to greet them)

    All of these early birds are handled on a first come, first served basis.

    When the convention floor opens up for those with general admission tickets, I start handing out about a hundred numbered tickets to the arriving fans so they don’t have to get on what may already be a long line.
    Fans already at the end of the line (behind the tenth person) also have the option of taking a ticket and leaving the line to return later.

    The first digit of the ticket indicates what convention day it is. For a three-day show, the first day’s tickets would be numbered 100 -199, the second day’s 200-299, and so on.

    The ticket basically reserves your place in line once I’ve finished with the early crowd. If, say, a fan returns from enjoying the show with ticket number 110 and I’m already serving ticket 125, the returning fan with the lowest number is always next.

    Therefore, a fan with a higher ticket number like 155 would never be any worse off time wise than if he or she had waited on line for 54 other fans to be serviced first.

    The reason I use this system is because I personally can’t see spending money to come to a show just to stand in line for what could be hours. This way, it’s the fan’s choice whether to wait on line or not.

    There is no charge for the ticket and it entitles you to a sketch (limit one per ticket) autographs (I set no limit to the number of things I’ll sign, but do request that fans be considerate of each other) and a photo op.

    Sketches are quick headshots for $40 and can be drawn on any surface you prefer. I will provide my own drawing paper for those who don’t have their own.

    There is no charge for autographs and photos.

    Only one ticket per person, but you can get tickets for family members as long as they are there to use them.

    Once you’ve used your ticket, you can get another ticket, if any are still available, and come back later to be served again. You can’t use a previous day’s ticket on a following day since that would be unfair to those who may only have one-day passes that following day.

    On each day, if I finish with all the numbered tickets, I will then serve any arriving fans on a first come, first served basis.

    Unless there is an unavoidable call of nature, I will remain at my table until the end of each convention day.

    I hope this helps everyone understand how I work and that it helps you all enjoy the convention experience better.

    Thank you.

    CONVENTION SCHEDULE FOR 2015 (so far)


    Now that I'm working on a regular series again, I will be keeping my convention schedule relatively light next year, but these are NY scheduled shows so far. I've deliberately kept January, March and May clear for some personal stuff so I'm not likely to book anything for those months.. There are a few places I have never visited before, so I'm looking forward to meeting up with some new faces there.
