Continuing my Comic-Com International recollection for 2012 after posting a list of highlights a few days ago, here are all the photos I took at this year’s show. In year’s past, I’ve come home from San Diego only to realize I took about five to ten photos that in no way showcase the Comic-Con experience. So, this year, I made an effort to take a ton of photos. If I thought, “Wow, that’s a weird/interesting/strange/wild/crazy/outrageous/cool/fun thing!” I did my best to capture it on my iPhone camera.
Here’s what I came home with this year…
Here are two group photos of all of 2012’s Eisner Award winners. Photos via Jamie Colville.
Yep, that’s me between comic legends Stan Sakai and Mike Richardson. Craziness. If I didn’t have photographic evidence of this, I’m not sure I’d even believe it.
Colville also posted an mp3 recording of the Eisners Ceremony. If you jump to the 1:50:12 mark, you can hear the beginning of Mike Richardson’s acceptance speech. And, if you jump to the 1:51:45 mark, you can hear Mr. Richardson generously give me a shout out for my hard work on the book. However, the craziest thing about the whole experience was that, after my boss kindly acknowledged my work in front of an audience of my peers, there was a round of applause. And not just two or three people clapping, but actual applause. Definitely one of the greatest highlights of my career! Thanks, boss! And thanks so much to everyone else too! That support means so much!
(And a shout out to John Schork, who was the assistant editor on the book before me. The dude definitely deserves a nod for his work, as well!)
This year’s photos are definitely a better representation of the Comic-Con experience! It was a great show. I’m glad I got so many great photos!
