    Baltimore Comic Con, here they come! Looking forward to that playing out. I wonder if Oeming will be making an appearance?

    Sal, there are lots of people who attend the Baltimore Comic-Con who might just show up in EZ STREET. The real question is how many?

      Thankfully, Mark, this is one of those questions that will get answered, and I'm looking forward to seeing it. ;)

    Is this one of those Art imitating Reality imitating Art comics ? Or just the ultimate name dropping platform ?

    Personally, I approached the whole notion of incorporating real people in the strip with some trepidiation. I know that approach can backfire on you if you abuse it and story is subverted by name-dropping. But on the other hand, there's something pretty cool about blurring the line between fiction and reality. In particular I was thinking about the film Sunset Boulevard. The cameo by Cecil B. DeMille is just about perfect – although I suspect he wasn't nearly as compassionate in life as in the movie. But the whole scene wherein he is deferential to Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) speaks volumes not only about the film industry but about relationships between people that are grounded in years of knowing one-another. Mike Oeming shows up in the story because Mark and I each have such long-standing friendships with him. His behavior in EZ Street is classic Mike: the good guy, always looking to help his friends. Plus, he agreed not to sue us!
