Harbour Con-Fusion Report

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the first annual Harbour Con-Fusion, a geek-centric event in St. John New Brunswick . I was asked by con promoter Joe Hatfield to take part and I am extremely glad I accepted. A great turnout for a first event and  commendable beginning to what I hope becomes a integral part of New Brunswick’s geek scene.

My involvement was much higher than I anticipated and I couldn’t have been happier, first up I was part of a “celebrity” panel with Nick Bradshaw amazing Moncton born artist for Marvel comics Wolverine and the X-Men (I’m aware I had no business being on a celebrity panel but screw you … I didn’t complain, but maybe raised an eyebrow). We had a lot of laugh’s telling stories and answering audience questions which surprisingly had a few for me. Nick is a class act and extremely talented, go read his stuff … Now! the rest of the first day was spent doing convention sketches and selling my comics. I was stationed beside the gents at www.missiongeek.com. The were hillarious and commissioned me

Convention sketch for the Mission geek gang Old People vs Babies.

for a few sketches which were some of my favorites I had ever done including Robot vs Octopus, Ninja vs Gorilla and Old People vs Babies, the latter of which can be seen to your left. I spoke with them about writing for their excellent site and I hope a collaboration happens because these guys are tons of fun.

The next day I was a part of the Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse panel lead by my old good friend Kale Harding and Chris Rupert affectionately known as “Humpy” . We had a lot of laughs fielding audience questions and detailing survival methods which somehow included smoking Meth… you had to be there.

Later I participated in a Creating Comics panel with Scott Marshall who does a fun web comic over at www.timewounds.com and has a website at www.potzrebie.com. A awesome guy and I hope to work with him someday. Also on panel was Jim Hachey a talented writer and inker as well as old school zine creator, and a couple of guys from the web comic Liquid.

Thanks again to Joe Hatfield and Margaret Helen and all the con participants , go get check out their facebook site and come join us next year for the grassroots convention that could and hopefully will again!
