What a blast! And I so appreciate the line from "The Princess Bride." You're so fortunate to be able to hang with so many cool people, and so many cool people are so fortunate to hang with cool you!


I think it's funny that Coraline has been around for years and years and only when the movie comes out does the book get nominated. Oh well. You rock, Shannon! :)


Good times! Thanks for sharing!

Shannon M.

Couldn't agree with you more about Comic Con being huge and loud and crowded. I was there Sunday and I've never been so confused. It's a blast, but it's kind of like Disneyland on a busy day--fun for a while, but easily turns from the Happiest Place on Earth to the Crappiest Place on Earth when you get tired of the heat and the smell and the constant crowd. My feet are still recovering.

Anyway, I think Rapunzel should have won. I'm proud that you can be a good sport, but I can't. I think you were robbed. Robbed! :-)

L.T. Elliot

And never bet on a sicilian when death is on the line!

I'm sorry to hear about Rapunzel's Revenge but you are in some dang fine company, if I may say so. Goes to show how highly thought of you are!


The Princess Bride! Quite possible the best movie of all time... anyhow, thanks for the play-by-play of comic con. Sounds like a blast!


awesome sauce! That sounds like so much fun.

And as for not winning, psh. What shame is there in losing to Neil Gaiman, in all fairness?

Ruby Diamond

Awesome! It sounds like it was a blast.

Well, I certainly hope you and Dean had FUN. While I was here, sweating away, busy NOT being at the ComiCon. I certainly hope a wonderful time was had by ALL. And yes, the ALL CAPS are meant to show the burningly SARCASTIC tone of voice I'd be utilizing if I were actually TALKING instead of TYPING!


Congratulations on the nomination. I think "Calamity Jack" is gonna take it, next time around.

Julia Slaughter

I am proud to say that I carried around my Book of a Thousand Days, just in case I stumbled across you! This was third Comic-Con, and I have to admit every year they are so much fun and so crazy all at the same time.

Congratulations on your Eisner nomination - it's an honor in and of itself


Oh, cool, you got to go to Comic Con! Sorry about the Eisner, but being nominated is really cool, and I really think your rules are good ones to live by. It's also really cool that you like Joss Whedon-everyone should! : )

And never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line! Ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha! (kills over and the Man in Black runs off with Buttercup). P.S. In case you're wondering, both cups were poisoned. Not like you didn't already know that. Sounds like you had lots of fun. :)


Cool--glad you had fun, Shannon! Tales of your exploits almost make up for my lack of fun-having. :D

Shannon Morris

Comic con (sigh). I pulled up a dying aspen in my back yard. Maybe I'll catch the fun next year.


I MUST go to Comic-Con! My mother was laughing when I told her how some people go there to meet really famous actors and actresses, and I added, "Who CARES that movie stars are there? I want to see the AUTHORS!" So I pretty much stared open-jawed at the computer screen when you mentioned that Jennifer Holm and Nathan Hale were there.

Congrats anyway about the nod! That's still amazing! The Hale trio still has another shot when Calamity Jack comes out, right? Maybe I'll be able to go to Comic-Con then! :D


wait is Nathan Hale's wifes named Mindy? thats so cool we have the same name!

Je Reve

I love the one liners! I really must go if it reaches closer to home!

The placard on your table should have read "Nominees." The Eisner staff table was actually table 27, so the placard was misplaced. Sorry about that!
