For my final interview of the convention, I spoke with Jamie Portillo who wrote Hell Paso. He has a passion for history that he’s converted into a series of historical fiction graphic novels.
Intrigued by Mercy Sparx, I decided to speak with Josh Blylock of Devil’s Due Entertainment. (Which has just merged with 1st Look) The books turned out to be deeper and more exciting than I expected.

I’ve come to know Mark Waid more and more as he seems to make it Baltimore Comic-Con every year. So it was a no brainer for me to attend the Guest of Honor panel in which he was featured. The panel turned out to be
