Visaru - Dan Fraga
And last but not least, Visaru again, as drawn by Dan Fraga.  Dan was an artist that started in the 90's and he's working on such projects like Bloodstrike, Deathmate: Red, and both X-Force/Youngblood crossovers!  See what I meant about people thinking Visaru had a mask?  He wasn't the first but he won't be the last I'm sure.  Still not bad for being made in 30 minutes for $60 huh?

Visaru - Norm Rapmond
Now on to the commissions.  I got two this year, both well worth it.  This one was by Norm Rapmond, a great inker and, clearly, a great artist as well.  He drew my big bad Visaru and...like multiple artists in the past, for some reason they seem to think they see a MASK on my friends sketch of Visaru but, unlike others, Norm made it more of a marking on his face...in fact I loved it so much I'm making this a permanent part of Visaru's people now!

For the record it cost $60 for the head shot and an additional $40 for the coloring, so $100 total...well worth it

The Tale of Two Robs
As promised, here's my photo with Rob Paulsen himself.  Man I forgot how much taller I am than him...or maybe he's shrinking LOL

This years Motor City Comic Con was one of the best times I've ever had in more ways than one!  I got FOUR great commissions, met a LOT of great creators for the first time, got plenty of new books, and best of all had a few great surprises! 

Friday, as always, was when I got most of my comics signed and my commissions done.  The first person I knew I had to get to first was Dave Gibbons!  I was one of the first in line there and, while bummed to be told there was a limit on the books I could sign (well specifically, the first 5 were free and any after that was a $1 donation each) I condensed my books down to 12 (so $7 extra) and got my commission done.  He was super nice and, when I asked him about the Watchmen's use at DC he was polite and told me no comment but did laugh that he knew he'd get that question asked and, obviously, I was the first to do so.

After him I went to #edmcguinness  next and had to, at first, deal with the same thing of 5 free plus $1 for any addition...and lets just say Ed was my big haul this con for signatures.  I told him about my love for his work and how I had all his Red Hulk Run (and how I spoke up in support of the run even when people hated it).  He told me to come back later and he'd sign everything (he hated charging for signatures and was able to convince his handler to let me do it).  From there I went to the others for signatures including Mark Farmer, Andy Lanning, RB Silva, Kenny Baker, etc etc.  It was when I went to Bernard Chang and had him sign all my books, including all my issues of Batman Beyond he worked on, that I got my first surprise.  I told him how much I loved his work and that he's the best to work on the character since Norm Breyfogle (whom he had no idea worked on the book) and, after he signed everything he gave me one of his rough draft comic pages from batman beyond (it was an alternate take on the second to last page of Batman Beyond (2016) #5 and I was so surprised and kindly accepted it.  Afterwards I went to Chris Brunham and got a sketch from him then went over to Tony Fleece and got my commission from him too.

I then went on to buy books from venders and found some nice surprise finds.  The best one I found was The Joker: Devil's Advocate which is actually a pricey price tag usually but here I found one for $6!  I also got the Joe Kelly Deadpool Omnibus for a decent price.  The next day I simply stayed around for a little while and got my commission from Andy Lanning paid for and did a little more looking around the area but otherwise I left early

Sunday I was doing my volunteering duties.  Now in the past they usually have us there for 6 hours and, for me, I usually got stuck guarding some of the doors to make sure people don't sneak in.  This year however they changed things up.  First of all we are required to be there ALL DAY, start to finish!  And my job this time was...to walk the media guest area of the floor and see if anyone needed help.  It was boring and my legs hurt by the end!  I would say it was terrible had it not given me an opportunity I never would have had!  A chance to help out golden age comic artist Allen Bellman!  The man and his wife were so kind!

Now at first I was sent there to just help them collapse their booth and help them out...the thing is that's all I was told to do and, imagine my confusion, when they asked when their ride that will take them to their shuttle which would take them to the airport...I had no idea!  I kept asking around since it seemed like the con staff thought they'd get their ride at 5...when that was when their shuttle left!  So I made sure to stick around, calling over other volunteers to get staff members, everything until I made sure they were taken care of.  And, thankfully, they did were able to get on a golf cart and taken to their shuttle with more than enough time to spare.

And with that, and getting my free autograph for volunteering (one from Amy Joe Johnson) I must say that, aside from the annoyance of the majority of the volunteering changes, this was a great year and one I will always remember!

Hey you did them based on my fan fiction, why shouldn’t I? Besides for what they were and how long ago you drew them, they’re not half bad even today if you ask me

It was great practice at least. Oh the stuff I could draw for you these days haha. Too bad I've never been busier in my life, but that's how it goes.

Ah well maybe, whenever/if-ever you find time we can talk about remaking the pics? Or some thing else maybe. Ah well, someday perhaps
