Short Run Small Press Fest, Seattle Washington, November 2013 at Washington Hall.

I spent the whole day posting pictures on Facebook so people would tag the photos. Now I'm too tired to repost everything here, so... Feel free to visit my Facebook album for more photos.

1. I'm going to need help identifying people in these photos. If you know who these happy guys are,
please send me a note so I can add it to the caption
(just use the comment section for this post or send an email to trickcoin at gmail dot com.)

Schemes are being hatched! 

Fantagraphics Publisher Gary Groth

Fantagraphics publisher Gary Groth showed up at our table just as Frank M. Young and I put on our goofy umbrella hats for a sequence in Bezango, WA (Documentary). A slightly mortifying moment.

I plan to post most of my photos at and of course I'll send a note to Tom Spurgeon at Comics Reporter. — (with Mark Campos and Brenda H. Kaslow in the background)



I didn't get to see Pat Moriarity. He was away from the table when I stopped by.
But.. I did finally get to meet his rock star son Jack!

Paul Tumey, comics scholar extraordinaire and a dear old friend. At Short Run small press fest, November 2013. Be sure to check out Paul's recent book projects: "The Art of Rube Goldberg" and "Society is Nix". Also, he is writing a wonderful column for the Comics Journal called "Framed." Don't miss his 2 part article about George Carlson. And.. oh yeah... he curates websites dedicated to Jack Cole and Screwball Comics! The man is a dynamo!

A table full of treasure from Short Run small press fest. I was so busy snapping pictures that I didn't get a chance to get many zines. These are the ones that Paul Tumey scored.
