Man it's been a crazy week hanging out with Tyrese Gibson and Team MAYHEM! We got to hang out with Oscar-winning director Guillermo Del Toro and discussed things like...(oops I can't say), but don't worry, you'll find out soon enough. Tyrese and Guillermo really hit it off and Guillermo is a stong supporter of MAYHEM!...

As for Guillermo's midnight book signing at Meltdown comics...the man caused a 4-hour line outside that went on forever! I've never seen anything like that in my life (he's like the Beatles or Jackson 5). Guillermo signed every book and spoke with every person, and is one of the kindest people you will ever meet.

If you're wondering what we are all drinking in the gold cans, it's called Tibetan tea and it's the greatest drink on the planet (and it's ALL NATURAL!) I would like to say thank you to Tina Zee from Tibetan Tea, you changed my life by introducing me to my favorite drink in the whole wide world.

We also hit up the video game convention E3, which was exhausting. And a Twitter party at a place called "MY HOUSE" (that's the real name of the club), which was so off the chain they had to calm it down because it was too many people (I thought I saw PRINCE but I was too far away).

Check out the video at Meltdown and don't forget to pre-order Tyrese Gibson's MAYHEM! But please try to do it today so you can be part of comic book history in the making.

Comic Con is coming up, any Jack Kirby fans in the house? Well every week until comic con I'm going to give you a little piece of history about Jack Kirby. I never had the opportunity to meet Mr. Kirby but he's been very influencial over my career and one of my all time favorite people in the comic book industry.

I'll talk to you guys next week....until then..peace.
