I might not know much about gaming, but I love the gamers and love the fact that it’s as diverse as comics. There truly is every genre and style imaginable. I have attended to major gaming cons and they happen to be right here in NJ a mere hour from where I live. Run by the Double Exposure company, both Dreamation and Dex-Con were used as inspiration for me when writing my story arc.
Useless Amber Trivia: My first D&D character was an elf named Amber.
My arc stretches a previous arc that Sunny and Jason are supposed to be hiding their real dating relationship under the guise of spying on each other’s comic shop. Creator Kevin Freeman probably would have preferred having that put to rest so the characters’ relationship could be out in the open, but with Free Comic Book Day approaching I had the idea of Merlin’s Outhouse and Kingdom Comix being in bitter competition over getting creators to appear for signings. (*Speaking of FCBD, if you really want to know what it’s like come visit me and J.K. Woodward at Comic Fusion in Flemington, NJ) You can be sure to show your love of SUBCULTURE by stocking up on the trade paperbacks or showing off your sexy self in an official SUBCULTURE t-shirt like I wear. It’s got the image of Noel saying, “Back off, Fanboy!” Now how perfect is that? Totally perfect. You can also LIKE us over at Facebook. Despite what a piece of crap that network is, it is the Goliath to which we bow these days. And finally, if you have a blog of your own, please consider linking to SUBCULTURE.
