What a shocker!
I'm still not ready for the full report I promised but I thought it was time to lighten things up here a bit. While I was signing at the HERO INITIATIVE booth (which was not actually raising money for the Mike Wieringo Scholarship as Newsarama reported...easy mistake with everything going on) I was eavesdropping on a conversation between Mark Waid and Cully Hamner. They were discussing the virtues of a certain Spidey nemesis that Mark is fond of.
Mark said something like, "Man, I can't get enough of the Shocker!"
That sent me into a fit of badly-concealed, snorting laughter and my face turned red. Cully looked at me like I was nuts for a second, made the connection and started laughing with me. Mark just looked at us like we were a couple of idiots.
Yesterday, I had an hour or so waiting for Suzanne and knocked this out. Occasionally, the urge to draw something hits me so hard I just have to indulge myself. (Warren, I haven't forgotten ya, buddy. I just didn't have my reference handy.) This was a lot of fun to draw and got some laughs from my coworkers.
Anyway, I hope you like the Shocker. Who doesn't?
