I'm knee-deep in the spring convention season.  I got back from Emerald City Comicon in Seattle about a week ago, spent Easter weekend in Montauk (my first time, and highly recommended), and I'm headed to Chicago this coming Friday for the big C2E2 con.  By the time I get back from Chicago, I'll have been away from home for 11 of the previous 16 days, in three cities.  I've even got another con two weeks from C2E2, but that's a local show (the fantastic MoCCA con here in NYC), so at least I'll be sleeping in my own bed, and I won't have to deal with any airports. Anyway, busy busy.  I won't be tabling in Chicago, but I'll be around.  I'll be on two panels on Friday, and I've got a signing on Saturday.  I'm returning to NYC on Saturday evening, so it'll be a quick trip for me.  Here's the schedule:

Friday, April 13, 2:45-3:45 PM, Room S401abc - Archaia Panel.  I'll be formally introducing Strange Attractors, my epic OGN scheduled for this coming fall, including some first looks at the incredible interior art from Greg Scott.

Friday, April 13, 5:30-6:30 PM, Room N426b - Comics and Pop Music.  Along with a really cool batch of fellow panelists, I'll be discussing the way music has been addressed through comics, and where the two mediums might intersect in the future. Should be fascinating.

Saturday, April 14, 11 AM - 12 PM, Booth 529 - Archaia.  Signing advance teaser posters for Strange Attractors and answering questions about the book.  This is probably your best chance to get anything else you might want signed by me, since I'm not doing any other signings in Chicago.

Of course, feel free to say hello if you see me on the floor.  If you don't see me, and you want to catch up, best way to get me is probably to give me a shout on Twitter - the handle is @charlessoule.

Looking forward to it - Chicago's always a great time.  See you there!
