SPX MEGA POST!







Spx was SO awesome, I met so many people that I love. I did miss out on a lot of stuff, but still, it ruled. I'm definitely going back next year. I spent like a million dollars on comics though, here are just the books I bought:

That's not even showing all the mini's I walked away with! But the best think I bought was this little James Kochalka painting for Samantha:

So cute, right? Anyways thanks to NOAH and DAN for letting me tag along, it was great hangin with you guys!

I'm jealous! Sounds like you had a great time. Maybe I'll join you next year..

tintorcio said...

Great comics by the way.

Kris said...

SPX sounds great. I hope you got Steve Wolfhard's Turtie mini. I love Turtie. Turtie is my new boyfriend.

Matt said...

Dude, you met James Kochalka?! I'm totally in awe of you, Sam. You're doing it, man. Way to go. You'll be one of the big boys at SPX one of these years.

By the way, the comic where you were gonna take off your pants? I totally thought the title said "Sex is over"... which made that comic hilarious on a whole other level.

Samantha said...

my kochalka painting is my new prized possession! and i love turtie!

I kinda hate you for not getting C. Thompson's new book, too. Hey, can I borrow that gorgeous stack of comics from you some day? (P.S. I can't wait to get a copy of Fight!!)

Sam Spina said...

@Kris I did get that Turtie mini! MAN Steve Wolfhard's comic are the best, so funny

@matt I totally did! he was awesome, and that would be a better title

@Leila Craig Thompson was only selling special pre-release Habibi for a Charity (CBLD) that he was signing for $100. I love craig thompson, and i can't wait for Habibi, but that's some serious cash. I shoulda got a blankets for him to sign tho. I did get to say hi and shake is hand which was pretty rad

I'm SO JEALOUS SAM! That sounds like an amazing weekend! :D What's Pizza Island Girls though? x

I totally read it as SEX IS OVER, too. I don't know what to say.

Josh Blair said...

Ha! I also read it as "Sex is Over." That sucks you missed hanging out with the Pizza Island girls. That strip is like high school over again, with NVS being the cool kid (imagine that, right?).

Also, re: the last strip. Probably should have hidden that one from the old lady, knowwhatimean?

Joe said...

Dude! We definitely should have hung out! Next year, yes? I regret not having Craig draw anything for me too. He even came up here to Vermont this week and I didn't ask for a signature or drawing, I just tried to play it super cool. Lame.

Sam Spina said...

@josh Sheesh, i gotta get rid of that title...

@joe Yea man definitely! If I can only go to one big, far-away show a year it would totally be SPX. And playing it cool never works out.

Jason Bradshaw said...

Hah, man, you're like an indie comics rockstar or something now! I'm going to have to start getting out to some of these shows down in the states rather than just relying on TCAF for all of my comics stuff.

Any plans on coming to any of the eastern shows? It would be awesome to meet you at some point!

Dan said...

Hanawalt for sure, because her comics make me all funny in the brain
