I growing up in California, I was a big fan of George Carlin. Two of his many jokes that stuck out to me was a t-shirt idea that would read "Kiss her where it smells, take her to New Jersey." and a reference to the state nickname as The Garden State as being true only if you were growing smoke stacks. Well, all Jersey jokes aside… the state is getting a brand new comic convention and they're getting a pretty big name to go with it.
Now Rich Johnston talked about the show a few days back, but since then they've added comic writer Garth Ennis. The talent scribe has worked for various publishers on such titles as: The Boys, Caliban, Judge Dredd, Hellblazer, The Punisher, War Stories, Just A Pilgrim, Hitman and many many more. Preacher, the series he co-created with Steve Dillon, is a new series for AMC and we'll be getting a preview for it on Sunday during The Walking Dead.
It's my understanding that Ennis is only doing 2 shows a year in the states… so if you want to meet him, get something signed or ask him about his projects or even Preacher, you might want to get your tickets now. as Nov 20th – 21st is coming soon.
