Nashville Horror and Comic Book Convention

Howdy all.

I just spent the weekend in Nashville, TN. attending and promoting my comic book series at the "Nashville Horror and Comic Book Convention." It was a blast.

I met several nice people and made many new contacts. In regards to where the promoters of the convention placed me and my table, I got really lucky. The other vendors and presenters near me were extremely pleasant and down-to-earth folks. Across from my table was none other than Jackson Bostwick. Who? Bostwick played "Captain Marvel" on the CBS Saturday morning show, "SHAZAM!," in the early 1970s. He was a great guy and I talked to him quite a bit over the two days of the convention. He had his three-year-old daughter with him... who I ended up baby-sitting periodically when Bostwick would disappear to go hob-nob.

The star of the show was B-Movie/TV legend, John Saxon. He still looked just as intimidating as he did in every movie and TV show he appeared in in the 70s. I didn't get a chance to talk with him... but others assured me he was a really nice and charming man.

I ended up selling over 20 copies of "the Experts" and gave several copies and contact info to a marketing guy from Marvel Comics. Who knows? I think I blew about $150 on comic books and action figures.

All in all... it was a very fun and informative time. I'll definitely do more conventions in the near future.



  1. Kenn,
    Looks like you had a great time! Hopefully some others from the area will join you if you go next year? Fall is crazy busy and it's hard to figure out which events to go to! Glad you had fun and thanks for sharing your trip with us!

  2. Hey Kenn,

    That Eric Powell guy is really talented and he doesn't look at all like a Goon!

    What's up with you and Thong Girl, any Thong Babies on the way? Inquiring minds want/need to know.

    If Dracula and the Frankenstein Monster were in a no-holds-barred, steel cage, death match who would win? Think carefully before answering...

  3. First, you have to ask... is the blood flowing through Frankenstein's Monster alive or dead? How does that work?

    Sadly, I did not get Thong-Girl's phone number. She was actually a Playboy Playmate in 2003. Oh, how far she fallen...
