Sally Forth Comic Con: How to Cat and Meet Celebrities

Posted in Uncategorized by cesco7 on July 23, 2018

I have a very dear friend Lucas Turnbloom who meets ALL the celebrities at San Diego Comic Con each year. He’s met Joss Whedon, He helped Michael Rooker with his luggage, and on the very first day of Comic Con he took this photo of himself with a certain Firefly star…
And the next day…

In fact, such is Lucas’s powers of meeting the famous that a few weeks prior to Comic Con I was walking in NYC, the two of us joking on Facebook chat about who he would run into this year, when I passed right by David Letterman. (NOTE: Even in NYC this is an extremely rare sighting, akin to spotting a long-bearded unicorn.)

Hence why Nona has all these photos of her with celebrities, including Letitia Wright from Black Panther and Kelly Marie Tran from The Last Jedi, whose Rose was rightfully celebrated by cosplayers at Comic Con this year.

And this also allows Jim Keefe and I to celebrate Lucas’s VERY fast-rising and popular webcomic How to Cat with its own booth at Trystero Con 2018! You can read a great selection of How to Cat strips right here but here is just one example:

And make sure to read Lucas Turnbloom’s Dream Jumper graphic novels co-written with Greg Grunberg. Inside you’ll even find a character patterned after me, which he oddly named “Francesco.” 🙂

SPECIAL NOTE: Make sure to collect all Sally Forth ¡Popp! bobblehead figures all this week on Sally Forth!

    You and Jim are hitting all the right buttons with me with this arc. I am a big fan of good voice actors and Tress MacNeille is one of the greats. Your shout-out to her brought a huge smile to my face.

    I am loving this arc! But you are killing me with that “Josh Whedon” line.

      I can’t believe I did that! Thanks for the heads-up!

    The best I managed was the time I was in line for Kate Mulgrew’s autograph and Eddie McClintock stopped by to see her just as I got to the front of the line. More notable because he wasn’t even a guest at the con.
