OK, so good news/bad news time.
The bad news is that, unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to cancel my appearances at both the Summit City Comic Con in Fort Wayne, IN and the Derby City Comic Con in Louisville, KY. Both are really great shows and I’m super bummed that I won’t be able to make it to either of them this year. But I shall return, with something that resembles a vengeance, next year.
The good news is that means my first and only show of the season is the Small Press & Alternative Comics Expo in beautiful Columbus, OH!
I’ll be located at Table 129 and will have copies of Punch-Up and Skottie Rocket for sale — both written by me and illustrated by the Amazing David Brame — as well as FREE Punch-Up postcards and stickers — AND, to sweeten the pot, I will have TEN Punch-Up Patrick Plushies for sale, courtesy of the wonderful Ms. Abigail Kokai.
And, in case you weren’t already sick of me, at 4:00 on Saturday April 21st, I will be talking about webcomics on a panel with fellow webcomics creators Doug Hufford & Todd Beistel (Yuri Gypsy Hunter), Eric Adams (Lackluster World), and Kevin Czapiewski (Spoilers). This will be my first ever panel, so make sure you come see just how much I can prattle on and sweat in one hour!
SPACE is held at the Ramada Plaza Hotel & Conference Center, located at 4900 Sinclair Road Columbus, OH 43229, April 21st and 22nd, from 10:00 AM through 6:00 PM on Saturday and 10:00 AM through 5:00 PM on Sunday. Admission is $5.00 a day or $8.00 for a weekend pass.
So come on down to S.P.A.C.E. and buy a book or two or just say hi! Either way, it should be a blast!
Just a friendly reminder: I will back in beautiful Columbus, OH this weekend, selling my wares at the Small Press & Alternative Comic Expo this weekend!
The convention will be held at the Ramada Plaza Hotel & Conference Center, located at 4900 Sinclair Road Columbus, OH 43229, March 19th and 20th, from 10:00 AM through 6:00 PM on Saturday and 10:00 AM through 5:00 PM on Sunday. Admission is $5.00 a day or $8.00 for a weekend pass.
Once inside, you can find me over at Table 118.
I’ll have copies of Punch-Up and Skottie Rocket for sale — both written by me and illustrated by the Amazing David Brame — as well as FREE postcards and stickers advertising Punch-Up.net! Also, if all goes well, I may even have a extra special item for sale, courtesy of the wonderful Ms. Abigail Kokai. If asked, I may even ruin some perfectly good sketch cards with my doodles for ya!
AND, if that wasn’t enough, I’ll have the ever-bearded Rob G doing sketches beside me for most of the weekend!
So come on down to S.P.A.C.E. this weekend, buy a book or two, grab some sketches, pick up your FREE swag, or just say hi! Either way, this weekend should be a blast!
And, as always, fist bumps are free!
Have you ever thought about living the glamorous life of a Booth Bitch?
Do you dream of getting into a small press and alternative comic convention for free? Do you wish that you could carry a comic creator’s shit from his car to the convention floor and set it up for him? And vice versa? Do you long to walk through aisles crowded with nerds, collecting comics printed and stapled together at the local Kinkos, while getting a comic creator a cup of coffee? Do you yearn to sit behind a table, selling comics and merchandise, while the creator of those comics takes a break to walk around, network with other writers and artists, buy some comics, pee?
If you have answered “yes” to any or all of these questions and desire to live the life of a Booth Bitch, but never thought that you could ever aspire to that level of pure awesomeness, then you’re in luck!
The 12th annual Small Press & Alternative Comic Expo is in two weeks and I am in need of a Booth Bitch! I can get you into the convention for free, saving you the whopping $5 entrance fee, and will even possibly buy you lunch! Maybe!
We are an equal-opportunity organization and accept applications from all genders, races and creeds. Must be 18 years of age or older and legally permitted to work in the United States. (This organization does not employ minors as that is, like, super creepy.)
If interested, there are like a brajillion ways to let me know: leave a comment below, gimme a call, send me an email, or shoot me a message on Facebook or Twitter. (If — somehow — more than one person in interested, we can always divide up the days. One person goes Saturday, one on Sunday.)
I look forward to having you work for — I mean, with — me.
In one month, I will be inside of you once again!
You have been warned.
So this past weekend’s Mid-Ohio Con was pretty fun!
I met a lot of cool folks, saw some old friends, networked with a few really talented artists and – hopefully - might get to work with a couple of them sometime in the future on some really cool projects.
Sales weren’t quite what I had hoped for, but the people who did buy my books had nothing but nice things to say about them. I even had one guy who told me that he had bought my book at a shop in Cleveland and was excited when he saw my name in the Creator’s Common list.
I’ve already learned from my mistakes and shortcomings, as this con season comes to a close, and am already planning and making necessary changes for next season. You guys just wait! I’ve got some good stuff in store for ya! Next year is going to be HUGE!
Thanks to everyone who came out, bought a book, or just stopped by the table to say hi! And I hope to see you all next year!
So, technically, my con season started a few weeks ago with S.P.A.C.E., but I held off on posting where I’ll be for the rest of the year because… well, at the time, I wasn’t sure which comic conventions I’d be attending.
I’ve decided that, this year, I’m going to do three con appearances – not including S.P.A.C.E. – because… well, that’s all I can afford to do at this time. Mothereffers are broke, y’hear?
May 22, 2010: I’ll be at the Summit City Comic Con in Fort Wayne, IN. I’ll have copies of both Punch-Up and Skottie Rocket, Gay Space Pirate with me for sale. I’ll even have some of the con-exclusive Skottie Rocket posters for sale, as well. So, if you’re from Fort Wayne or live somewhere in the Indiana-Ohio-Illinois-Wisconsin area, stop on by for this ONE DAY SHOW THIS WEEKEND!!!
September 11, 2010: I’ll be at the Champion City Comic Con in Springfield, OH. More details on this convention later. ANOTHER ONE DAY SHOW!!!
November 6-7, 2010: I’ll be at the Mid-Ohio Comic Con in Columbus, OH. More details on this convention later.
Now, this isn’t to say that I won’t be doing any other conventions this year – I may be invited or notified of another nearby/cheap show at some point in the future – but you will definitely find me at these shows.
Keep your eyes and ears hear for more comic-related announcements – and my usual B.S. – later this week.
I got my mind on my comics and my comics on my mind.
