But don't think I wouldn't swap in an instant. At Kapow! Leo is getting to meet loads of fellow comics creators - not only our former colleagues on The DFC but new friends throughout the industry - artists, writers, publishers, journalists and fans alike.
This is pretty much the first time Mirabilis has been unveiled to the public and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Unfortunately we still don't have copies of the UK hardcover books (they're traveling across Europe at this very monent) but Leo was able to take along a few of the limited-edition TPB editions. If you bought one of those off him yesterday, make sure to store it in an airtight box as it's already a collector's item. Particularly gratifying was the guy who bought Winter volume one only to come back an hour later saying, "I read the first 20 pages over lunch and I already know that I must have volume two."
If you want to meet Leo, he's on Table 8 today. Go and say hi, chat about Mirabilis - and I think he might be keeping a couple of emergency reserve copies of the trade paperback under the table, so just give him the secret RMS handshake and say I sent you. Just don't ask him to draw Kraven the Hunter.
