Among the great artists and teachers present were Raina Telgemeier and Dave Roman (above, left) and Jason Little (above, center in the red shirt) plus Jessica Abel and Matt Madden, Tom Hart, Nick Bertozzi, June Kim, my old DC compadre Joey Cavalieri, Sal Amendola and Jack C. Harris. I was especially delighted to have my first real conversations with one of my favorite modern comics artists, the great David Mazzucchelli.
The room's chairs were set up in a big semi-circle around a small podium with me in it.
I felt a bit dorky up there, but it worked out okay.
Afterwards, we got Dunkin Donuts! Which is a big deal to us, cause they don't have them out West.
