It was great to be around all my friends, both personally and in the comics industry. Everyone from Studio Revolver, Studio Gaijin and Jolly Roger were there, and it was a blast getting to just hang out and be a comic book nerd with all my artists friends. And Teenage Satan was extremely hyped and well-received -- Marsha Cooke and Stephanie Buscema were a pleasure hang around, as they always are. And Steph was the hit of HeroesCon, with a two-page spread in the program and tons of accolades for her brilliant art and style, which are VERY well deserved. She's the best. THE BEST, PEOPLE.
It was a very welcomed weekend getaway. As some of you have noted, there were some distressing messages a while back on Twitter and Facebook, and then a sudden lack of Joe for a few days. With all the stresses of everything I've been working on and stuff going on in life, a break was not only warranted, but utterly necessary. And I feel better now. Things are back headed the right direction, and having such a successful Art of Akira showing at Heroes was a big leap forward. Thanks for all the email, messages and outreach, it meant a lot. But I'm good now, and more focused than ever on doing good work.
