Well, for good or ill, I have been listed as a guest at the upcoming Lucca Comic and Games Fest in late October: NEWS LINK.
I say "ill" only because I have yet to be issued the French visa I applied for, which would also let me cross into Italy for the show. I am expecting word on this in about a week.
Hopefully when the dust settles from this activity I will find myself not only attending the show but relocating overseas where I will join my better half, which is truly the better half of the news that is unfolding.
I will make announcements regarding all of these important events for Nathalie and myself when those in control give us the green light.
