We are using every last moment prepping for the "Big Show". What surprises do we have in store for all you faithful Lovers?
Not even we know because we don't know what we will be able to finish before we depart for San Diego.
Here is a map so you can find us at Comic-Con.
Once again, we will be in the
Small Press Area - table O14.
Share this map and info with all your friends.
Schedule of events at our Table:
Wednesday (Preview Night): Sorry Amigos, Wednesday is Hump Day. No HMLC for you.
Thursday: sell comics & shot glasses, sketch for fans, give advice on Love and perhaps a hug or two
Friday: sell comics & shot glasses, sketch for fans, give advice on Love and perhaps a hug or two
Saturday: sell comics & shot glasses, sketch for fans, give advice on Love and perhaps a hug or two
Sunday: sell comics & shot glasses, sketch for fans, give advice on Love and perhaps a hug or two,
raffle off Albert's phone number
We may also be calling "Angry Bob" intermittently throughout the con since he decided to recharge his Canadian batteries back in his homeland instead of being with you, our fans and followers. For a small fee, you may be able to actually speak to Angry Bob in Canada (That's another Comic-Con exclusive!)
Lovers scheduled to be at the table:
The Lady Janice
The Space Pope (not a Lover, but a Saint)
and everybody's favorite... Beanrobot (Albert)!
Friends of Love and Lovers unto themselves
Here are a couple of shout-outs to some other passionate people who deserve your attention (and your disposable income). They are all friends and animators and have their own tables/booths at Comic-Con. Be sure to tell 'em "Hot Mexican Love" sent ya.
Louie Del Carmen - table G04: Louie is a frequent contributor to our anthology, an obsessed workhorse, an amazing artist and a good friend. He self publishes comics and sketchbooks and has a great ongoing blog "Random Anomalies", which you should definitely check out
Paul Wee (Red Eye Art) - table D04: Paul is our Cover artist and if you read our blog, you would be saying "Haven't you kissed his ass enough already, Senor?"
No , I have not.
Go to his table and buy some of his stuff.
Conduct Happiness - 4830: Chris Sonnenburg (along with partner Joe Moshier) has reinvented the "Pea" in "Happiness" (or is it "Pee"?). Chris is another huge talent and his wares are adorable. In addition to their usual stuff, C.H. has published it's very first "Golden Book", get it while it lasts. And you can also go to his website to see what is making everybody so damn happy.
Vaya con Amor, Amigos. Hope to see you all later in the week.

Just over one week left until Comic-Con and the tension is on the rise as we anxiously await the arrival of our book. I have been in touch with our printer in Canada and they have shipped. The real question is what day will it arrive?
In the meantime, let me tease you with another entry from the 2010 addition. This week brought to you from another freshman lover, the uber-talented Phil Allora. I must give extra credit and kudos to Phil. Here is a list of his Hot Mexican Love trials and accomplishments:
-I met Phil at last year's Convention (he bought our book and also works with Albert). I was unfamiliar with his work and he asked to be a contributor in the book. And although I gave him a hard time about it, Albert assured me he was a good kisser. Knowing that Albert is also a good kisser (so I've heard) I trust him, and yet I still vetted Phil more than McCain vetted Palin.
-he took the comic and deadline VERY seriously
-he was the first person to turn in a submission for the 2010 edition
-he did one of the longer stories in the 2010 edition
-his story totally ROCKS! It looks and reads AMAZING! Sincerely.
If I didn't know better, I'd say Phil did an amazing job just to make me feel sheepish for giving him a hard time when I first met him. But this is HOT MEXICAN LOVE. We don't hold grudges, we share the love and spread the passion.
So Muchos Gracias to Phil. You are top-notch in my book! Amigos, you should also check out his Blog and Deviant Art Page. And if you see Phil, do what I plan on doing, ask for one of those muy feugo besos that Albert was raving about.
Hope to see you all next week!

Hold onto your sombreros because we've done it again!
It's clean. It's green. And it can finally be seen!
Hot Mexican Love Comics is proud to announce the third in our series of shot glasses (affectionately known as the "Sombrero Series"). This year featuring our very own "Padre Prick"
Be the envy of all your compadres as you drink a shot from the only drinking receptacle guaranteed to increase the potency of what it contains by a minimum of 17%. How do we do it? The answer is simple...
because we love you.
Available only at Comic-Con, this is one exclusive you will not want to miss. Other exhibitors at the con limit their exclusive items to a few thousand... HOGWASH! To keep up the value, we limited our production run to less than 200! The first of our series sold out. Don't be left behind this year too! Be sure to swing on by our table of Comics, Romance & Machismo and demand your shot glass. On second thought, you should buy two. Why? Because we love you.
See you in the Small Press Area: table O14
