I love Comic Con so much, you guys.

Check out this art I got this year! First up, the original art for Cat Staggs’ redrawn part of the most recent Smallville cover. It’s so beautiful I want to cry, and cost enough that I did not end up getting as many sketches in my Lois theme book as I was planning, haha. NO REGRETS. Look at how beautiful it is. Bask in that beauty.

Second, the Mike McKone head sketch I got to kick off said Lois themed sketchbook. I wasn’t sure who to ask first, and I wandered around in a bemused haze for about half an hour before I decided on Mike. It seemed fitting to me, because when I started getting really into comics, the first ongoing book I started purchasing monthly was Teen Titans, with Mike’s art. And the sketch turned out lovelier than I dared to hope. :’)

Oh, and since I went to Cat’s booth with the intention of getting a sketch from her in my book, but instead bought that cover art, I couldn’t resist also buying this Lois sketch, which I believe was a practice for her original design for issue number 3’s cover, which featured Clark/Superman/Lois rather than Lex/Superman/Tess. Apparently “they” (I assume that means editors) made her change it. :( But this is a lovely sketch based on one of my favorite Erica photos, so obviously I love it.

Also. ALSO. Kate Beaton drew Fat Pony on my birthday, ok! Worth the price of admission alone, that. I love Kate Beaton so much I could claw off my own face. I wish I wasn’t such an anxiety-ridden doofus and said more to her when I met her, but c’est la vie. BIRTHDAY FAT PONY!

And then there was that time I asked a Lois question at the Superman panel and holy crap, they gave me a signed, Jim Lee-sketched hardcover Justice League volume 1 as a prize?! I was bowled over. I’m not used to being rewarded for being a Lois fan! It was pretty excellent, and I was also pleasantly surprised by my question receiving long, thought-out answers this time…in 2010, I just got a lot of “no plans for her” with the exception of Cornell’s answer, which was to gush about how great writing a Lois comic would be, which was, granted, super endearing. 

So basically, the art related stuff alone would have made this the best con ever.

    Nice art Cat. Glad to hear some nice things about Lois and a Superman panel. I was actually beginning to think D.C hated...
