Well, a week from now I will be standing in line to get into the Baltimore Comic-Con. I cannot tell you how pumped I am to be heading there. This is one of those conventions where I don't even know if I will be looking at the dealers. There are so many creators to rub elbows with.
I have posted about the primary targets I have for commissions as well as questions I hope to pose to some of the creators there.
Now I figured I would post some of the things I wish will happen although they are highly unlikely. May as well have a game plan just in case.
1) A third Jamal Igle commission:
I have never met Jamal Igle but I already have 2 commissions by him, both obtained when friends of mine went to conventions he was attending. They are both Supergirl in the Matrix style costume I prefer, although one appears older and sterner than the one posted above.
I actually am hoping to get a Linda Lang commission from him figuring that is both unique to my collection and sort of a celebration of the current run of the book.
The best scenario would be that one of the other commissions I obtain finishes relatively early so that I can give Igle one of my sketch books late Saturday or first thing Sunday.
Of all the wishes, this one probable will happen.
2) A Frank Cho commission:
This is highly unlikely as I don't think Cho does commissions. I really love his work and getting anything from him would be a coup.
I am trying to think of ways to get something ... even if it is a '3 minute sketch'. Maybe by donating to the HERO initiative or the CBLDF in his name?
This is a pipe dream ... I know.
3) A Matt Wagner commission:
I love Wagner's classical look in his art. I loved Mage. I loved Trinity. I loved his writing in Sandman Mystery Theater and Madame Xanadu. I think he is a legend in the field.
I have no idea of Wagner does commissions but at the very least it will be extremely cool to meet him.
So those are the wishes. The con is a week away and I hope to do some live blogging there!
