That deal on the selling stuff to compete with Amazon will change tomorrow.
I've been doing sketches of Batman on the upper left hand corner of Batman Odyssey and selling that book for $50. People love it. Well, like it a LOT. "Hey, Neal not only signed it. he drew a sketch of Batman in silver in the corner."
Marilyn's idea.
Success at Calgary made her suggest Silver pen sketches of Superman on S'man vs Muhammad Ali. Then a couple wit Ali.
I'll talk to Jason tomorrow about making these available on the site-here.

I think we'll do others on other books an prints as well. What do you think?

Calgary. Loved it. Guys, invite us back.

A store up there, Comic-kazi with a very clever owner named Wes Wong (Took us to a PERFECT dinner and )bought sketchbooks and prints at a good discount for the rack next to his checkout. He said, he'll call a day Neal Adams day, (heh) and likely sell them Out. I'll bet he does, if you go by the response at our booth. If you live near there the store is at 4307 Macleod Trail SW , In Calgary.

Now, just for fun. What not to ask for at the airport, from sales girls with big confused eyes!
At Horton's Donuts don't ask for a Jelly donut. They don't EVEN know what they are.
At a Bagel store don't ask them to SCOOP IT. You'll say it 5 times then describe it then Mime it and finally GIVE UP. Forget asking, in the first place.
If you ask for a side of butter to butter that bagel yourself,.and you look at the butter and it separated into lumps of butter fat lard and salt grease, don't go back to the girl and point out it's lard-lumpiness and horrible separation,... she will merely look at it and suggest it must've been left out near the oven,.....then,...give it back to you.


  1. Mr. Adams.

    It was a pleasure meeting you in Calgary. You were a breath of fresh air, loved the way you didn't mince words and spoke your mind... I'll cherish your (<--notice the correct spelling!) copy of the signed comic forever, as well as the print!

    You mentioned a motion comic you thought was well done, I can't remember the name of it, could you let me know?

    Thanks, hope to see you at the next Calgary Expo!

    P.S.: YOU shut up! ;-)

  2. Hey Neal! Had a blast with you in Calgary! Yes, you must come back, I need headshots of all the rest of the Avengers... and I know at least three people who, for one reason or another, couldn't make it to the show, and they must have masterpieces as well.

    Gotta talk with Kandrix about bringing you guys (and Jason?) back, as long as late-April (the normal time for the Expo) works for you.

    Thanks for coming, please come again! And keep telling it like it is, brother!


    P.S. I kept forgetting to tell you at the Expo, thanks for Siegel and Shuster. In case you hadn't heard it in a while.
