We can sometimes be perceived as a reclusive bunch here and don’t make it out to many conventions. A lot of that is due to our geographic isolation up here in the Great White North. Richard is located out in the East of Canada in Montreal and the rest of us are almost 3000km to the west out here in Vancouver, British Columbia.
But sometimes we venture out to meet the public.
A major force and often silent partner of Optimum Wound, Richard Serrao will be appearing at this weekend’s upcoming Montreal Comicon being held at Place Bonaventure in downtown Montreal, Quebec.
This will be his third appearance at the con and each time he becomes a bigger draw. He’ll be onhand to answer your questions, talk to fans and chat up fellow artists. He’ll talk you up about writing, drawing, publishing and all things comix and movies. Rich is a walking encyclopedia of genre books and film.
At his table he’ll have original artwork, prints and copies of Optimum Wound Volume One and REX for sale. So if you’re in the Montreal area, dig comics and badass art be sure to stop by Rich’s table.
