OUR BUDDIES | J. Chris Campbell Courts Eisner For "Excellence In Fatherhood"

I don't know how newsworthy this is, but our friend J. Chris Campbell, yearly guest at HeroesCon and recent guest at our Charlotte MiniCon, did this really cool thing recently. He's a pretty prolific cartoonist, but despite having a potty-mouth, is really big on getting kids into comics, and just being great with kids.

Case in point: check out this post on his blog, where he went to his son's class and gave a little speech on how to draw robots. That's pretty cool, and it's easy to imagine a sweet guy like J. Chris doing it really well. But the part I thought was coolest was when he talks about drawing on his son's lunch bag every day, and the other kids being interested in what new robot would be there. Man, wouldn't you love to have that memory years later? Nice work, JCC!

I'm totally stealing that lunch bag idea. Might swap out the robots for monkeys.
