This One’s for My Homies

by Steve Napierski to Articles

So KatsuCon was last weekend or as I like to call it Con Flu 2008. Con flu is now an official term on, just to let you know. Didn’t really get to do the kind of mingling that I wanted to as Peekaboo came down with a case of death the second day there (he’s feeling better now). So here’s the short list of webcomics I had interaction with (gimmick stolen from Mookie):


– Hawk smiled at me. Not sure if he remembered me, was nervous because I’m a 6’6″ viking or both.

Blue and Blond

– The introduction to webcomics panel that I was on with Kilika was one of my favorite panels ever.

Bored and Evil

– Richard was there managing my table more than me. I kid you not. That’s the way it usually works.


– Garth’s booth did things with stuffed animals that made me feel dirty.

Dead of Summer

– Peekaboo meant to pick up their book at the con, but forgot. I guess he’ll have to order it online. You can do things like that now.

Dominic Deegan

– I finally got Volume 2 and Mookie is still one of the nicest guys ever.

Evil Inc.

– Brad is a cool guy. Wish we had more time to talk but he was always busy. Maybe he’ll be at SPX this year.

Hookie Dookie Panic

– Screw that guy from the Beach Boys. This is the only true Brian Wilson.


– First time I ever met Chris, but he seems like a cool guy and I had a good time with him on the introduction to webcomics panel.

Partially Clips

– Yes, Rob Balder creates Erfworld. But Partially Clips is also friggin’ brilliant.


– He brought my Humphrey Bogart shirts and they turned out awesome!


– Shawn brought Super Smash Bros. Brawl to the con. This is next to godliness.

The more I type, the more this short list becomes a long list. Thanks to KatsuCon for having me and OneZumi for handling the webcomics part so well.
