Wow – what a great show! There was a fantastic turn out – over 700 people came out despite the sketchy weather. There were plenty of artists, vendors, cosplay, and even a confirmed Brony sighting! Brenda and I had a blast, and I’ve got to hand it to her – she sketched Ponies until there was no one left! Seriously, almost all the vendors had packed up and gone home and she was STILL doing sketches for people! That’s class.
It was a blast getting to hang out with Becky Cloonan, Andy Belanger, Nick Bradshaw and Ramon Perez! Comic people are the best people, everyone is so nice and deeply passionate about the medium. I get so wound up at comic shows I don’t sleep well, it’s just too damn exciting! I’m very pleased to have snagged Becky and Andy’s small press books – Wolves, The Mire, Demeter and Black Church. *Fanboys a little*
You’d never know this was a fist time Comic Con they way the event was run – the organizers, volunteers and everyone involved were so on the ball. Well done gang, your hard work really paid off! I hear tell that next year’s show is already in the works as a two-day event and I can tell you without a doubt we’d be back in a heartbeat if we’re invited!
Too much fun! I could go on and on about Robotech, Double star gin, Dail-esqe moustaches, millipede Pony orgies and who may or may not be a secret Furrie in the comic biz but you really had to be there.
Now it’s back home to work and let me tell you the ‘secret project’ is moving along full speed and I’m even more excited about it now that I’m rolling in it full-time. If I haven’t mentioned before, the project will be announced at SDCC this July, so you still have to put up with me referring to it as the ‘secret project’ for some time yet. Just know that I’m having a blast and can’t wait to talk about it when the time comes!
