My favorite part of Comic-Con? The groupies. Man, they have loose morals, really. Men, women, I’m just saying that it gets weird on Sunday night. No, that’s sadly never happened.
My second favorite part of Comic-Con is connecting with people that you just don’t get to see any other place, because most of the people I work with live in Brazil. A lot of Brazilians. There is no hub of the comic book industry anymore. It’s just so scattered because we do everything digitally, so it’s the chance I get to see the people like Jo Chen and Fabio Moon and connect with them while I’m seeing my idols, while I’m hanging with my friends that I came with.
But my absolute favorite part of Comic-Con is seeing like a Mass Effect guy hanging out with a Sailor Moon, and they’re just having a great time. Nerds, we love what we love with a passion and sometimes it’s an angry passion, and to see that all sort of bleed out and everybody just connect, like ‘Your passion, my passion, equally valid. Let’s party.’ To me, that kind of connection, that’s what I want in my work, that’s what I want in my life. That’s cool.
