Denver Comic Con Day 2 Highlights by Dayna
Dayna Himot aka Dénouement of the Not So Sufferin’ Sapphos rode shotgun with TOTLB for day two of DCC. Fishnets and blue-balled mic in tow, here is a glimpse of what she has brewing for us.
DCC Day Two July 2, 2017 1:55 a.m.
After hanging out with the Stickslate family (Booth 556) on day one, owner Chad Donahue’s brother Shane, thought I should speak with Northern California artist and animator Justin Orr (Booth 425) of (Lo-Fi/Jusscope.com,) his intuition was spot on. Orr and I discussed every from basketball, concept art, Australian daybill posters to J. Dilla and NWA. This year the illustrator is at DCC with his sister Hilary (Squid Bacon Row M, Artist Alley) and his buddy Nooligan from Sacramento. Hillary and Justin share studio space in Oakland. Stay tuned for more of the conversation with Justin of Jusscope!

I also spoke with R. Alan Brooks, Matt Strackbein and Dion Harris creators of The Burning Metronome, a story filled with different perspectives, diverse characters, with a twist of “The Usual Suspects” meets “The Twilight Zone” – a murder mystery graphic novel with supernatural undertones. Find out what this dynamic trio has to say on TOTLB post DCC podcasts.

Additionally, I spoke with German Boulderite Christian Braun the “Collector of Collectors” about his approach to catalog every collectible ever made. Also, when Juan and Gabe took the ruler of all things cool and important in this world (Gabe’s wife Mel) to a surprise visit to meet Mike Colter (Luke, mother-f***’in Cage,) we spied this little guy.

Dayna was so stoked that Justin Orr knew his way around J. Dilla’s, she gave him Dilla’s Delights stickers from her last trip to dj in Detroit where the shop is located in downtown smack dab in the middle of the D.
In lieu of the worst parking experience ever on Day 1, Dayna treated herself to a pedi-cab ride home. Hear more about her driver Luke and all the things “petty,” apres con!
