    Your depiction of Imperial stormtroopers overwhelming great comics and cartoonists is an accurate assessment of the modern San Diego Comic-Con. I am sure you will have fun anyway! :) Please take care.

    Spent an hour watching the pictures on the habibi website. I am hoping you’ll have a video soon, showing how you work. This is just too fascinating and need to be recorded! Thank you for sharing your hard work, I couldn’t see you on Friday, I went to the booth but it was too late. I touched the first habibi though, and it made it even harder to wait!

    Hi Craig,

    It was truly lovely to meet you at Comicon, one of the highlights of my trip! There’s something special about meeting a person who inspires and touches you through their work – your storytelling and brush work is simply beautiful… I will be exhibiting at APE and I look forward to sneaking away from my booth duties again and getting a signed copy of Habibi.

    I hope you have a great time on your promo tour and wish you the best with everything.

    Warmly,
    Nidhi

    Hello Craig, I was just wondering if you (or anyone else) could elaborate on the Fantagraphics event on October 5th that you have listed on your tour dates. Will it be just you that night? Or will there be a bunch of other artists as well? Also, I’m assuming that it will be held at the library, but any special place or room? Thanks a bunch – I look forward to seeing you there!

  11. Katie Says:

    Oh no! I was at SDCC and Tr!ckster too, wish I’d thought to find you and say hey! Looking forward to picking up a copy of Habibi, loved reading it in Florida :)
