Eisners

For those of you who don't know, the Eisner Award is the Oscar of the comic industry. It boosts book sales and publicity, and because Hollywood and the comic industry are so inbred now, it definitely helps projects get visibility to be optioned.

So that's where I'm going to be until Sunday - schmoozing with my Hollywood and Comic professional friends, mingling with new contacts, and getting the word out there about Mom's Cancer.

Fingers crossed. I'm sure my bro's publisher would love to stamp "Winner of the First Digital Eisner Award" on Mom's Cancer.

Again, if you're in San Diego and want an autographed pic of Hero or to drink with me, blast me an email. No clue how much access I'll have to internet, but will do my best.

Congratulations to Brian and to Mom and to Nurse Sis and Kid Sis and HERO!! :)

Here's a place to start with getting Hero "stuffed" :)
Get your ideas manufactured into a custom stuffed toy by one of the leading plush toy manufacturers, www.CustomPlushToys.com . Stuffed animals are our specialty, and they are used for trade show promotional giveaways, retail items, product launches, and other uses.

On second thought....I'm sure the publisher will be able to get all kinds of Mom's Cancer stuff licensed, including cute little Hero toys. I'm thinking journals, note cards, cute hats....just have Brian mention licensing to them!

The Dummy said...

Yeah!!! Congratulations!

Congrats! I wound up working the Parks Sabers booth the whole con, so I had almost zero time to see anyone or meet up with anyone for the most part.. But I wanted to say congrats. :)
