Jungle Book #4

Mowgli and Baloo escape from the clutches of the insane apes of the island only to find themselves faced against the deadliest creature in all the wild: Kaa, the giant Python. Even then the combined strength of Bomani, Mowgli, and Baloo may not be enough to stop him from devouring them all.

The Good
The storyline. I am still loving how this story is progressing. Besides the fantasy of being a comic book, I find so much real life in the story. Most people just want to be happy in their own little world, acknowledge others when needed, and only notice the outside when a common enemy emerges.

Wizard World Austin 2012 Wrap Up Part 2

Believe it or not, the day I could have slept in because it was quiet was the day that I had to be up the earliest! I’m telling you, I lead one glamorous life. Typical con day routine : Get up, get around, check email, check Facebook, head to the convention. I wasn’t honestly feeling breakfast so I decided to skip that and head right down to the convention center. It might have had something to do with my excitement about finally meeting Shawn and his wife, Sun (see the bakery post for more information about her) for the first time in person.

So, it was off to the convention center. Since I was anxious combined with oh crud, Saturday parking is always miserable, I actually ended up at the convention about 45 minutes before the VIPs and Press could access the show floor...
