Members of the Great Lakes Chapter put in appearances at Mid-Ohio Con in Columbus Ohio on November 25 and 26. A whole bunch of members, in fact. This was the first year for the con to be held at the Columbus Convention Center. Officers Collins & Boldman showed up before the doors opened on Saturday to stake out the GLC's territory, and by 10:00 am, things were rolling.
Earl Musick arrived early in the day to help Daryll Collins get down to the business of sketching and signing for fans.
The fellow on the left -- somebody will have to identify him for me. But on the right, it's comix historian Bruce Chrislip.
Here's the first of many group photos that would be taken throughout the weekend. Daryll Collins, Earl Musick, Craig Boldman. GLyphie, the OSU Cartoon Research Library's Jenny Robb, and Bruce Chrislip.
Catwoman holds Daryll and Earl in thrall! Who is she beneath that mask? And wait -- Where's Jenny? Could it be --? Hmmm...
Naahh -- Jenny's elsewhere, schmoozing with Captain Ohio.
Craig meets a fellow Weekly World News cartoonist. Alien Baby, the strip Craig co-produces with Stephen DeStefano, appears opposite Danielle Corsetto's Bat Boy in the lower half of the WWN comics section.
Daryll made the find of the convention. Click the picture above to see the strangest cover illustration ever created for a comic book. And if anybody can explain this, please let us know.
Cheap camera. Always causes that red eye effect.
Did I mention, Dan Davis was there too. After the convention closed down on Day 1, several of the group reconvened at Max & Erma's across the street.
What's Daryll doing with his hands??
Day 2. The crew for the afternoon panel starts to arrive. At left, Jeff ("Moderately Confused") Stahler. Seated: Tony ("Agnes") Cochran; and at right, Terri ("The Pajama Diaries") Libenson.
A fan bows before Tony.
Jeff finds a seat at the GLC table.
Living Legend Roy ("Wordless Workshop") Doty arrives and shoplifts valuable pieces of art from Dan Davis' booth.
