Whether it takes you being faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive or able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, free up some time this week to head out to San Diego for the annual Comic-Con and say hello to Suns blogger and superfan Adam Beechen.
By day (when he’s not blogging about his favorite NBA team), Adam is hard at work as an unsuspecting comic book writer and animation scriptwriter. With credits including Justice League Unlimited, Teen Titans and multiple Nickelodeon animated series, the Con is the perfect venue for him to meet industry peers, as well as zealous comic book, movie and TV fans.
“Here’s what I believe,” said Beechen during his appearance at the 2009 Phoenix Comicon. “You become a better, more well-rounded writer the more life experience you have. So experiences like this, where they may not find their way directly into a Suns blog, make me a better writer, a better more well-rounded person and someone more able to do my job as a Suns blogger (coughs).”
To meet Adam at the Con, head to the:
DC Comics booth today from 1-2 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 2-3 p.m.
AiT/PlanetLar booth (#2001) today from 2-3 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from noon to 1 p.m.
His current KILLAPALOOZA comic book miniseries continues, with No. 3 in stores now. He’ll also be announcing one new project at the Con, with another big announcement coming on Saturday at the Wildstorm panel from 3:30-4:30 p.m.
“There is a letdown after a convention is over,” he said. “Everything is so high-energy, and you’re going so fast for so long, when it’s over and everybody leaves, it’s back to real life and everything is slow and really quiet. That’s a little hard to get used to. On the other hand, it’s nice to have it a little slower and quieter and try and rest up a little bit. You go from work to work.”
Look for more of Adam’s Suns blogs this upcoming season.
