SKIN TRADE Launch at Comicon

A couple of last minute additions to my schedule for San Diego Comicon.

Avatar Press will be bringing out the first issue of their SKIN TRADE comic at the con, based on my werewolf novella "The Skin Trade," which won the World Fantasy Award back, oh... before some of you were born.

Daniel Abraham did the adaptation and wrote the script. Mike Wolfer did the art (and what a perfect name for this particular story). An asthmatic lycanthrope, a sexy female PI, a gloomy gothic rustbelt city...

Daniel, Mike, and I will be signing copies of SKING TRADE #1 at the Avatar booth (2701) on Saturday afternoon, 12:30 to 1:30.  This will be a TICKETED signing, limited to 125 people.  Fans can stop by the Avatar booth any time to ask about tickets.  So get there EARLY.

Then, on Sunday, Mike Wolfer, William Christensen, and I will be doing a SKIN TRADE panel in the convention center.  That's 12:00 noon, in room 25ABC.  (Daniel won't be able to join us, he'll be off elsewhere being half of James S.A. Corey).

For those of you who can't be at San Diego, SKIN TRADE #1 will go on sale at your local comic shop tomorrow... well, I see it's past midnight, so make that today.  Wednesday, July 17.

SKIN TRADE #2 will follow next month.

But speaking of San Diego, I had better go pack.  See you all at Comicon!

Sometimes typos look really neat, like "SKING TRADE #1".

SQUEEEEEE!
This is actually the first piece of your work I ever read. My original copy is falling apart.

Have a good time! Looking forward to coverage as I won't be able to make it this year :=( See if you can get yourself a Stark shield.

I just keep getting more and more jealous of those lucky to go!

Will you post some of your reactions to your comicon experience?

Really like the cover, that dog looks ferocious. Well, after five here, almost quitting time. Unlike the lucky ones, not packing for ComiCon tonight.

Sadly, my LCS isn't stocking it and it isn't on Comixology.

George, I have always been curious as to whether you and your wife were joined together in front of the old gods or the new?

Really wasted from comic con this year, as always and Forever. There are cons, and there's comic con, one of a kind.

This is off-topic, but I thought you'd want to know that not one, but TWO of the stories from your week as our Clarion West instructor went live this month at Lightspeed :D "Ushakiran" by Laura Friis and "This Villain You Must Create" by Carlie St. George.

(Sorry I don't comment more often, I keep forgetting you have an LJ, and actually, I sort of keep forgetting I have an LJ haha)
