The Company I Keep

So the way Supanova works is that they fly us down for their first show in Melbourne, put us up for a week so we can enjoy Australia, then we do a second con in Brisbane the following weekend. It's a great pop culture event, blending sci-fi, movies, anime, and comics. And as far as guests are concerned, we all tend to hang out and move around together as a group, and as the lowest profile guy on the list, here's some of the esteemed company I'm keeping this week...

In the back row:
Jenny Fallon, author of The Hythrun Chronicles and the Stargate SG-! novel.
My fat ass.
Michael Winslow, Man of 10,000 Sound Effects, from Police Academy, Spaceballs and Gremlins.
Jewel Staite, Kaylee from Firefly and Jennifer Keller on Stargate Atlantis.
Spike Spencer, voice of Shinji in Evangelion.

Front row:
Daniel Zachirou, organizer of Supanova.
Colleen Clinkenbeard, voice of Luffy from One Piece.
Monica Rial, voice of Simca from Air Gear.

Other guests include John Rhys-Davies, who played Gimli in LOTR, James Kyson Lee, who plays Ando on Heroes, Lou Ferrigno, Greg Horn and Arthur Suydam.

Oh, The Places You'll Go...

Fulfilling one of my lifelong dreams, I'm in Australia!! Actually here for work, for the Supanova conventions. We're in Melbourne for a week, then off up to Brisbane at the end of the week. It's been mostly business and con stuff so far, but today the exploring and sightseeing starts. A few quick for now...

My first glimpse of Oz from the plane...

Driving into Melbourne...

My first Australian meal, a Victorian beef burger at Greasy Joe's in St. Kilda. It was amazing!

Rumor has it something prevented them from calling it Burger King here. Looking into it...

Best name for a linen shop ever...

The Little Perks

So here's a patch I requested from an artist today...

I can't tell you which comic it's from yet, but I think it's pretty clear what it will be covering. :)

The only reason I'm posting this is that it made me laugh. It reminded me how fun and/or funny working in comics can be from time to time. I sat here today and spent 15-20 minutes pondering the intricacies of bra design as well as color choices, black or white, and the overall effect our decision would have on the contrast of the page as a whole.

Kind of absurd when you sit back and think about it...

Avengers Fairy Tales 2 Cover

By the always incredible Claire Wendling...

Thursday, March 13, 2008


I had this crazy dream last night that Rainn Wilson and I were pro basketball players who quit the game to become lumberjacks. While having lunch one day after a hard morning's logging, we were attacked by a swarm of bees, only to be saved by Britney Spears and Travis Charest who came to our rescue wielding these sci-fi sonic weapons.

Explain that one! :)

Random Cebulski Book of the Week

This week's Marvel Spotlight featuring Laurell K. Hamilton and George R.R. Martin also contains a brief interview with me, discussing breaking into Marvel and Avengers Fairy Tales. I'm still not sure how me, possibly Marvel's lowest selling writer, was able to weasel his way into a book focusing on these two best sellers. Maybe it was the initials? :)

International Flavor

McDonald's Italy has come up with the coolest and most appropriate name for a fast food item ever... Veritgo Fries!

And while I refuse to eat Mickey D's anywhere where the food is as amazing as Bologna, their new Tirolese burger with raw speck ham and grilled onions did make me at least stop and question my decision for a minute...

I have never eaten better than last week in Italy and there are plenty of food pics coming soon...
