Greg Baldino’s C2E2 Report #10 – Liquid Venom (UPDATED)

Greg Baldino continues to report for Bleeding Cool from the floor of C2E2.


First off a shout of thanks to the ladies at the Venom booth who’ve kept me plied with caffeinergy drinks all weekend. When you stop by for a free shot, tell them Greg Baldino of Bleeding Cool sent you.

Jim Ottaviani got a slew of science themed graphic novels on hand, from his book Wire Mothers with art by Dylan Meconis to his science history anthologies Two-Fisted Science and Dignifying Science: Stories About Women Scientists.

A. J. Niehaus has comics and dolls from her comic Super Maxi-Pad Girl, co-written with her husband Daniel J. Olson who also supplies the art. A. J. also hand makes the dolls.

For fans of Promethea (or of Carbonneau’s The Marvel – good job Bleeders!) check out The Magickal Quest, an occultventure about a girl with reality warping abilites by Caitlin Drake McKay.

Fresh from his appearance alongside Scott Kurtz in the comic shop webcom The Variants (go watch, it’s funny) is Dave Crosland who’s doing painting commissions in addition to selling his book Puffed and a new mini sketchbook.

For those who like their comics unshorn, stop by the Unshaven Comics booth in artists alley and check out their anthology book Disposable Razors.

Colleen Doran took a moment to show me pages from several projects in process, including Stealth Tribes with Warren Ellis. The art is frankly amazing. Go to her table and throw money at her.

Everyone’s favorite scary godmother Jill Thompson is so excited for C2E2 she’s wearing jeans! Not to mention selling original art, patches of her characters, and her fantastic kids comic Magic Trixie

Jim Mahfood just had a Spider-Man comic come out this past week; go hit up your comic shop of choice and then get down to the alley where he’s also selling original art and taking commissions

And as happens at conventions, if you’re starting to get a bit whiffy, swing by Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs, where they’re debuting a number of comic-themed scents including Hellboy, Ireddemable, Dorian, and Neil Gaiman themed fragrances.

Described as a cross between Office Space and Fight Club, Eric Adam’s Lackluster World is the darkly comic story of a misanthropic albino, his insane siblings, and his annoying coworkers.

Peter David, creator of 93% of all stories written in the last nine decades, has copies of his scripts for sale in artist alley, as well as exciting comic art drawn by his daughter Caroline.

Greg Baldino lives and writes in Chicago, where he watches over the local comics scene like a posthuman autocrat. His fiction and journalism has appeared in many publications internationally. He can be contacted at greg.baldino@gmail.com.

They’re all wonderful people
