This past weekend on Saturday at Wonder Con, I got to see Joe Kubert Again. Very exciting.
Here's another picture of us chatting. I told him how we meet asking for a critique before my inking career started and what he said to me. Especially the line... "You're one of those inkers I like to kill because you take jobs away from me." He remembers that conversation vaguely which surprised me.
I told him I was working in comics now and how we worked on the same book, THE SPIRIT. I did some interior work where he was the artist on the cover. He smiled with pride and started asking me what I'm working on now and how I'm doing with everything and we chat some more.
Then on Friday, I went back to his booth to pick up one of his sketchbooks and we got to chat again. One of the guys at the booth said, "You're Walden Wong." I said yeah. He said, you're the one on Facebook. You were here yesterday and I didn't know that was you. I said, yeap, that's me, and told him how cool it was to be added by Joe Kubert on Facebook. Joe doesn't do all the technical stuff with Facebook, but he does read everything that goes through there. Then the three of us started talking about facebook.
It was great to see him again.
I'll be posting more pictures from Wonder Con soon.
