I apologize for not updating the blog sooner. By the time Comic Book City Con was finished, I was dead tired.
Anyway, Comic Book City Con went all right for me. I sold some things but not as much as I had hoped. The event (which was covered in the local newspaper, the News & Record) was the first one organized by Acme Comics.
Many locals were there as well as Andy Runton, the creator of Owly. I had seen him at Anthrocon, but never actually spoke to him until then. Andy was a very nice guy and I chatted with him about the publishing industry as well as the sales of original art. I was surprised to hear that a seasoned professional like him hadn’t sold original art at Anthrocon.
I was also approached by the comic book club of Guilford Middle School. They had a presence at the convention and approached me about appearing at one of their club meetings in the future. On top of that, I also got both Acme Comics and another retailer, Untamed Worlds, interested in carrying Sunnyville Stories Volume 1!
Well…how about some photos?
All in all, I had a good time. I just wish I had sold more.
