A look back at 2011 and looking foward
Picked up a couple of memorable sketches from some of my favourite 1980s artists, Bob McLeod (Fan Expo), Brent Anderson (SDCC) and Alan Davis (SDCC).
My writing credentials were acknowledged by the San Diego Comic Con and I was given professional status which was career highlight. I sold four short stories, landed two Back Issue magazine assignments, and crossed the finish line for this year’s NANOWRIMO. I hosted my first panel at the Fan Expo Comic Con with Chris Claremont, Fred Van Lente, and Dale Eaglesham.
I also wrote my regular column for The Black Glove magazine and joined the writing team for Biff Bam Pop late in the year.
And of course, this blog tripled its number of monthly page views to 32,000 hits, received just over 10,000 monthly visits, and has hit 110 followers! I was referenced on several prominent blogs, such as Jim Shooter’s blog, and several top websites, such as Comic Book Resources. Thank you for your support and comments. It's been a great year and I'm looking forward to unearthing more 1980s fun throughout 2012!
Happy New Year!
