Gearing up for RETRO-CON this coming weekend, September 27th and 28th at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA. Retro-Con celebrates the pop-culture of the 1980's such as He-man, GI Joe, Transformers, Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters, and MORE!!! It's a great local show that's easy to get to, and easy on your wallet to get INTO! I'll be there with good pals Dave Perillo and Ian Glaubinger, so come out and say "Whoa..."*

*For you whipper-snappers, "Whoa..." is a reference to the late-80s gem, "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure".

Hey all,
Tomorrow night in New York City will be the premiere of the Gallery 1988's "pop-up" gallery presentation of CRAZY 4 CULT 6!!!! The gallery opens at 6pm, but I'm sure a line will be forming earlier (if it hasn't happened already...)

Check out my DA gallery to see my contribution to the show, paying homage to romance comics and "Rock n' Roll High School" featuring the Ramones! fav.me/d5a0oi4
