Spain Part Two!
August 10th, 2009
Yes I know I was only in Barcelona a few months ago, but it’s back to Spain again this week, with Ivy, for Viñetas Desde O Atlántico.
As usual, updates may be spotty while I’m on the road, but we can hopefully offer some cool pictures and memories before we’re done.
While you’re waiting, be sure to check out Ng Suat Tong’s lengthy round-up of peoples’ reactions to Asterios Polyp, my favorite GN of the year (in case you hadn’t already guessed from my relentless plugging).

Scott, I’ve been a fan of your work for a long time. I’ve read your Zot comics and your great book “Making Comics”. I hope it’s okay to ask this: Years ago I wanted to get into creating comics. Then real life interfered, and while I continued to draw and write, I never had time to put anything together. Now I’m older (50ish) and I’ve decided to finally take the plunge. I’ve got concepts and scripts, I’ll be doing my own art, and I’ve got the equipment I’ll need (including a Cintiq). So I guess my question is: does my age matter? Do readers care? I suppose comics are generally considered a younger person’s medium, but I’ve made damn sure than in the important ways, I’ve never grown up. 😉 So what do you think? Am I asking a foolish question? Thanks.
I suppose age might matter to some people, but I’m pretty sure that great stories and art matter a lot more!
Wahooo! Having a good time, I hope! Shirley, Bryce and I were invited in 2006, and it were real swell! Enjoy!
I’m from A Coruña, I’ll hope to go and enjoy your talk, and with some luck get an autograph 🙂
I hope you have a nice stay, A Coruña is very beautiful, great for a long walk all along the coast and enjoying the food 🙂
Enjoy, see you!
I´m spanish, but it´s a Pity that Madrid actually is far away from La Coruña because I would like to see you a lot, I thic your book of how create comics is just amazing you are helping a lot of people, people like me (I´m triyng to make a comic and is so hard)
So thanks for all again and have a great time in Spain. (You have to taste “pulpo a la gallega”)
