This weekend I will put down my tablet and stylus leaving the serious work of coloring comics and head off to Boston.

At Lesley University I will be attending the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE) with a few of my friends and fellow comic makers. We’ll be at University Hill if you want to stop by and check out the latest books.

I went to Bethesda last weekend for SPX (Small Press Expo) for one of my absolute favorite conventions of the year. This time I tabled with the illustrious Rachel Dukes and as usual I ended up trading and buying more than my body weight in comics.

I am under-selpt, over stimulate, but I’d rather be these nutted-butters than anywhere else.

Also, I was introduced to “Naked and Afraid” by Mia Onorato, which means that my reality tv habit has gotten that much worse!

Some of the best finds are Jon Chad’s Bad-Ventures of Bobo Backslack and Syllabus: Notes from an Accidental Professor by Lynda Barry that sold out quickly!

There were more great comics in the bunch, but I’m going to be reading through my pile of comics for quite some time.
