My ECBACC Weekend


So in a few hours I’ll be heading off to Philadelphia for the weekend to attend the East Coast Black Age of Comics convention. The Glyph Awards will be presented later on tonight, and Miranda Mercury is nominated in four categories, so please wish us luck. I’m pretty sure I’ll also be presenting another award, and I’ll be on three panels tomorrow afternoon, when not manning my table and pushing copies of Miranda and Voltron onto everyone in sight. If you’ll be at the show as well, this is where you can find me, and for more information about the convention, please consult the official ECBACC website.
