Rudy Nebres wins an Inkpot at SD, 2012

"I was fortunate to have Rudy along for my drawing panel, and I, along with Rudy, was surprised as someone came in to award him the Inkpot for his work. Rudy was speechless. He truly deserves it."

Joe Kubert, a true legend, teacher, & friend...

"Joe Kubert died yesterday but he lives on with his family, students, work, and the wonderful life and energy he shared with all those he came in contact. I read his stories when I was very young and my dad worked at a barbershop. I read the Tarzan and war stories. Later, I saw the ads for his school. I lived in the west coast and could not attend.

I always admired his work, his movement to write stories that were meaningful to all of us. I was very fortunate to meet him circa 2010, and to count him as a dear friend. I have respect for him.

Do yourself a favor and read some of his personal works. If you never met him in person you will meet him in his work."

Stockton Con, ONE DAY ONLY, Sunday, Aug. 5th, 2012

Sunday, August 5, 2012 on the University of Pacific campus in Stockton. The goal of Stockton-Con as a non-profit organization is to bring recognition to outstanding artists in the San Joaquin Valley area – and to give attendees the chance to experience Popular Culture (Comics, Card Games, Video Games, Cards, Anime, Manga, Science Fiction, Toys, Television and Movies). 

It is also Stockton-Con’s intention to raise awareness and funds in conjunction with the United Way and St. Mary's Dining Room. St. Mary's helps provides food, along with dental and medical services to people in our area that are homeless and working poor and need that little extra help. 

If in town, buy your tickets at Al's comic shop in Stockton. 

BTW, the UOP campus is beautiful.
