Reubens Weekend!
cap, captain miss america

So this is a bit delayed but last weekend I went to the NCS Reuben Weekend for the first time and it was kind of awesome. For the uninitiated, the Reubens are like the Oscars of comics, and pretty much the only comic event that people have to dress up for. It’s in a different city every year, and this year, it was in Jersey City, right across the Hudson!

The highlight of the weekend for me was really getting to meet all kinds of people whom I talk to on the phone every day for the first time! That was kind of amazing. I finally met Hilary Price, whom I have been working with on stuff for a year and a half now, and I was sitting next to her when she won her award for best comic panel! And I met dozens of other people who were all totally awesome (I am not listing out lots of folks for fear I might forget people) and had an amazing time. (By the way, King Features cartoonists swept Best Comic Panel, Best Comic Strip [Zits], and Cartoonist of the Year)

My friends Shaenon and Andrew came in from California and I got to see them for the first time in two years, and then they spent the week with me, which was pretty great!

Friday was a cocktail party which was mostly full of introductions and cookies! Then Saturday, Brendan, Rina, Alex, Alex’s boyfriend Duncan, Terri and I went into the city, had a nice walk around and went out for really amazing pizza.

Then we went back to the hotel, got all dolled up and went to the Reubens, which started off with an hilarious Godfather parody starring lots of famous cartoonists, and ended with drinks at the hotel bar and then the afterparty, where I mixed drinks and stayed up till a very embarrassingly late time of night, mostly hanging out with Jay and his girlfriend Kate, who were both super awesome.

Then Sunday, Rina, Brendan, Jay, Kate and I went for a nice walk along the Hudson, and went back in time for Rina to participate on the Six Chix panel. And then we went home!

All in all, it was a really cool weekend and I got to dress up and meet all kinds of awesome people and spend time with awesome friends!

You look absolutely lovely. That's such a gorgeous shade of blue. Sounds like it was a great time!

I loooove your dress, Tea! The color is gorgeous and really makes you stand out.

You do look wonderful! And even better, you look like you're having a wonderful time! If only I could be one of those award winning (or at least nominated) cartoonists and I could hang out there, too! Congrats! And thanks for sharing.

All you have to do is be a member of NCS! And yeah, it was a super time. I got to meet so many fabulous people.
