TBWCYL Day 228 - Can I have your Autograph?

I have had to put off today's task for a while but I finally got around to it today. I went to the Dallas Comicon today for a couple of hours and enjoyed some nerd-dom with my fellow fat virgins (I myself am no longer a virgin but I do recall it with acidity and thoroughly felt for all involved). The task was to get someone famous to sign the page of The Book and I did.

Meet Brandon Peterson.

If you don't know who he is then I am not surprised. He is famous though, well to comic book people he is. He himself told me that he would categorize himself as a D-Lister unless you are within the comics realm and then he might be more of a B. To familiarize yourself with him, look at some of his art.

Here is a cover to a Dr. Strange Comic:

Here is an image of the Mad God Thanos:

and here is an X-Men cover featuring Storm:

I was able to get some comics signed and get a sketch of the Inhumans King, Black Bolt at the same time.

That is all,

Awesome sketch! How much did that cost you? It is pretty detailed.

It was only $20. There was a cover artist there who was doing sketches for $50 so I think I got a deal as this guy is really pretty good.

How was that Susanna Clarke book? You never said.

Also, you seem to have sped through "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"... did you give up?

Some nice artwork there. I’m not much into comic books to read, but have long had an interest in the illustrations, especially the more detailed and thought-out ones.

Dave McKean is probably my favourite – one of the few (three!) comic books I have is Black Orchid, by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean; excellent pictures. Another example is The Books of Magic (also Neil Gaiman, but illustrated by John Bolton, Scott Hampton, Charles Vess and Paul Johnson).

Thomas: To your first question, I loved the Susanna Clarke book and believe I mentioned so in a comment string.

As for "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies", no I didn't give up. I finished it quickly as I am apt to do with all the free time I have.

Simon: I love Dave McKean and Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors.
