Craig Miller

Facebook: I was on a panel called “Bringing Films to Comic-Con” with Jeff Walker and Steve Sansweet and Gary Sassaman. Gary was head of programming for Comic-Con for many years. And Jeff, Steve, and I were three people who brought many films and film companies to the convention. (There were others too. Most notably Charley Lippincott, who started it all.)

Anyway, during the panel, the convention presented me with an Ink Pot Award. Definitely unexpected and I was very pleased to receive it.

This morning was, perhaps, the best morning I’ve ever had at ##SDCC. I was scheduled for a Spotlight on Me panel, which I’d asked my friend @evnarc to moderate. I thought it was just gonna be he and I and 14 people talking about comics. When i got there, 100 or so people were already in their seats. Then SDCC’s Gary Sassaman introduced me, and then announced that I was a recipient of an Inkpot Award, for my contributions to the Comic Arts and a journalist and a creator. Already speechless as fuck, @evnarc launches into his own introduction, tracing our history as friends and colleagues, which left us both in tears. (My twitter feed has the text of his intro, in case you want to cry, too.) This morning broke me, then rebuilt me, and I can’t thank everyone enough.
