OH, THE HUMANITY!

The San Diego International Comic-Con, the world's largest, loudest and sweatiest conglomeration of all things even remotely comics-related and the men, women and others who love 'em, has invited your Uncle Jim to be a Special Guest. This has never happened before! 

I haven't been to the "con" since 2002, I think it was. My understanding is that the event has supernova'd to intimidating dimensions. I'll be there for the whole thing, so if you yourself intend to attend please come by my table and we can have a good cry together.

Where will your table be? Will you be signing and selling?

Mr. Woodring,
It warms my heart to think that even you get nervous at these conventions. For the first time I'll be in one of these in October and I'm a little jumpy about it. Also, I went to art graduate school in Seattle some time ago and was a little miserable there. Your work is so much better than all of my old professors squwished together. I had no idea that you were in the very same city doing the amazing things that you do.

I'll be at table 55A, I think, ethan. And thank you, cara.

I tried booking a room nearby the con way back in December.

I failed.

Dang! Susan and I aren't going this year.

The thing has become bloated beyond comprehension... you'll either love it or hate it.

Aw, that is great news! I'd always wondered if you did conventions at all. Hope I'll get to see you there, man. I'll be there helping my wife sell her book.

Hope I can bump into you this year. I'm a guest for the first time ever as well. The convention truly is a massive throbbing life form these days. If you come up for air once in a while, it can still be fun.
Take care,

That's table AA5, not 55A.
