Dave Dorman: Where You’ll Find Me This Weekend & Upcoming Shows & News

Dear Friends,

Today and tomorrow, I’ll be in Booth #251 at Indy PopCon, a show put on in Indianapolis by the creators of ComicsPriceGuide.com, a great publication (sign up for it if you haven’t already). It’s a great show with great guests – including my “The Other Dead” friend Kevin Eastman (creator of #TMNT), Joel Hodgson from one of my favorite shows, #MST3K (not to mention a hilarious stint on Jerry Seinfeld’s online show “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”) and a few actors from Game of Thrones, etc. This is the show to hit in the Midwest if you can. (A special thanks to our son Jack’s skateboard teacher Jim, from ArmedStar.com in Gilberts, IL for making the trip down.) My WASTED LANDS art is the souvenir art by OffWorld Designs for the t-shirts for Indy PopCon:

Secondly, I’m very troubled that a member of my military family, Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi sits in chains in a Mexican jail since March 2014 (also suffering from PTSD) for mistakenly making a wrong turn on the road from San Diego to Mexico (which has happened to many people, but because he had 3 rifles in his vehicle, he was taken into custody). To right that wrong, I ask that you join me in signing this petition to encourage the Mexican government to release him: http://www.billoreilly.com/site/rd?satype=13&said=12&url=%2Fpetitions%2Fviewpetition%3FpetitionID%3D-642527092894776988

If you’re on social media, the hashtag for this tragedy is #MarineHeldInMexico – let’s prove to the world that social media can right a wrong!

In other news, remember when I did that controversial President Obama cover for animal zombie series “THE OTHER DEAD” by Joshua Ortega, Digger T Mesch and Kevin Eastman?

POTUS loves Dave Dorman art!

Well, the entire THE OTHER DEAD series is now in hard cover in the comic book stores and in Barnes & Noble, as seen here:

Here’s Where You Will Find Me for the Next Couple of Months:

  • Star Wars Library Day – Joliet, IL – next Saturday June 7th
  • Capital City Con, Austin, TX – July 11, 12 & 13
  • San Diego Comic-Con, San Diego, CA – July 23 – 27 (I am being represented by producer Scott Faye and entertainment attorney Adam J. Sher as well as WriteBrain Media for PR).

In other news, as you can imagine, I was beyond incensed by the V.A. Scandal and my military family members not receiving their hard-earned medical care in a timely fashion, being put on secret lists, and many of them dying unnecessarily as the result. This has been going on for decades, and I hope it is finally now getting the media scrutiny and public attention this story deserves. Each of these military veterans should have vouchers to use ANY doctor until this gets corrected. When my father was dying of lung cancer, he received exceptional care from the doctors at Eglin Air Force Base, and I wish that was the case for all of our veterans. His doctor even came to his home to check on him back in 2001. You just don’t see that level of care anymore. Keep these suffering veterans in your prayers and let’s hope there’s a quick resolution and they get the platinum level of care they have more than earned with their sacrifices.

I hope you all have a great weekend and if you can, come & see me at Indy PopCon Booth #215! This is a family-friendly show!

Dave

 

 

 

 

 

Dave Dorman at C2E2 This Weekend in Chicago!

Posted in Comic Book Convention with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 12, 2010 by DaveandDeniseDorman

Dear Readers,

This weekend I will be exhibiting, signing autographs and doing sketches at C2E2 in Chicago at McCormick Place; I will be located in Row F, Table #6 in ARTISTS ALLEY. As you can imagine, since I’ve made Chicago my new hometown, we have high hopes and expectations for this inaugural comic book convention. From the artists’ perspective, this show has gotten great buzz for the past year.  I respect the people who are behind it, and that makes a world of difference.

Today is my best friend Steve Smith’s birthday, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY, STEVE!

Since I’m based here in Chicago, I do catch wind of some wild rumors. One of the more recent rumors is that the Obama Administration had hidden in the recently passed debacle of a healthcare bill the multi-million dollar funding subsidy for a feather pillow factory here in the Midwest.  Their master plan is to replace the now worthless nuclear warheads (thank you, Mr. Obama) with the “Deadly Snuggly Missiles of Comfort” (DSMoC)–the lighter & fluffier, the better–to defend against our enemies in the event of biological or chemical attacks. Their hope is that these pillow missiles will create great allergic sneezing attacks amongst our enemies.  I sure do hope they’re successful in this innovative, new defense maneuver. My beloved and sorely missed parents, USAF  Lieutenant Colonel Jack Dorman and Phyllis Dorman, are spinning in their graves over this news, I can assure you.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the many people who helped us with our new home logistics: Platinum Plumbing in Elburn, IL, Glenn & Marge McDonald, Tom Turner & Eddie Caceres, Nancy Reilly, Coralina Bouvier & Randi, Darlene Nauman, Christina Bouvier, Mary Lawson, Jan, Ben, Daria, Kathy Drommerhausen, Bill Domenz, Amber Edwards & Marco Frigini & Celia Kruse de la Rosa. For those of you in our inner circle who have always been there for us with a supportive and willing heart, please know that we appreciate you.

I thank you all for reading, as always, and I hope to see many of you this weekend at C2E2 in Chicago.

Dave.
