S.P.A.C.E.: The Final Frontier...

Hi, Everybody!

S.P.A.C.E.: The Small Press Alternative Comics Expo. These are the voyages of the starshi... Er, I mean:
Now coming up on it's 19th year, S.P.A.C.E. is the Midwest's longest running exhibition of small press, creator owned, and art comics. And Columbus, Ohio's longest locally owned and operated COMICS show of any kind. Sponsored by Back Porch Comics.
Dave and Gerhard went for a number of years, before Ger left Aardvark-Vanaheim, and Dave stopped going out in public.

Back then, members of the Cerebus Yahoo group used to go too.
Art by Yahoo, and Aardvark Comment letterhack, Larry Hart (except for the older funnier guy on the left). I can't remember the story behind this, but I'm sure Jeff Seiler will drop by the comments section with it...
(There's a number of Cerebus In Matt's Life stories about it, coming in the future...)

Anyway, Gerhard will be back April 28 & 29. And a number of the Yahoos are having a mini reunion too. (I won't be there, as I have a prior engagement.)

Saturday night, they're going to Schmidt's Sausage Haus (it's a tradition...(I have no idea why...).)
Hey look! It's Dave Sim! And Jeff Seiler. And my wife. And Me. (I'm the white male...)
So, if you wanna see a really good comics show, and Gerhard, AND some fellow Cerebus fans (Including AMOC's own Margaret Liss (she's on the left there).), head on down to Columbus for S.P.A.C.E.
You too could drink a giant beir with Gerhard. (That's NOT me on the left...)

I wish I good be there, but...prior engagement.

Next Time: Wanna see Dave's 50th birthday cake?

The story about Larry's drawering that he did is that I invited Billy Beach (heckuvaniceguy) to join us at S.P.A.C.E. But, Italy to Columbus and back again is a really long trip. Just ask Columbus.

So, Billy axed me if he could get a souvenir. Et, voila!

Dave's 50th birthday cake? Yes, please! As I recall, that was a *particularly* wild and adventurous S.P.A.C.E get-together.

What are we gonna do this year? Ya gotta show up to find out!

Could those beer steins be any bigger?

One year I drank two of those steins full of I think Guinness (yeah, yeah, at a German restaurant, I know, but I was on a Guinness kick at the time). Ugh. I stopped drinking all together a couple years after that. I never did give up getting one of those 1/2 pound cream puffs though. So tasty.
