I did not make it to Baltimore Comic Con. I would have loved to have gone, but it is a long way off and well with a new baby on the way that kind of money just is not there to be thrown around.

One of the reasons I would have loved to have gone was because of the 2013 Baltimore Comic Con Yearbook they were putting out. It was to feature a series of artist doing their take of Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo. That was ok though, I found out my wife’s cousin was going to be there and she agreed to pick me up a copy if I sent her the money…

Then it happened. The wife’s car needed some repairs and all the extra money went the way of the Dodo. So I had to tell Katie “thanks for being willing, but is not in the budget anymore…”

So flash forward a couple weeks and the postman drops a box off at our house with all of this inside…
