So here we are, just a few days away from S.P.A.C.E. – the Small Press & Alternative Comic Expo – and I’m here to give you all of the details you need to know about my involvement in the con.
First of all, S.P.A.C.E. will be held Saturday April 24th and Sunday April 25th at the Ramada Plaze Hotel at 4900 Sinclair Rd, near Morse Rd and I-71, in Columbus, OH. There is a $5.00 admission fee at the door.
Mr. Brame and I will be debuting two of our highly-anticipated new books at S.P.A.C.E. – Punch-Up and Skottie Rocket, Gay Space Pirate. Punch-Up is a 40-page black and white digest-sized book – about a guy who gets beaten up for a living – and will be sold for $4.00. Skottie Rocket is a 32-page black and white digest-sized book – about a gay space pirate who tells the tall tale of how he saved the universe – and will be sold for $3.00. We’ll also be selling a Skottie Rocket collectable poster.
David and Michael will be putting their magic crayons to paper and drawing awesome little sketches for a couple of bucks each. Unfortunately, I will not be doing sketches at S.P.A.C.E. but – if you ask real nice – I’ll write some swears words on your book.
Several of my other friends – and even some professional comic creators – will also be attending the S.P.A.C.E. convention. Be sure to stop by their tables and pick up copies of their books, too. You can find:
- The Mutant Cactus crew (Danny Cooper, Derek Watson, & Rob G) at Table 112.
- Victor Dandridge at Table 106.
- Joel & Melissa Jackson at Table 57.
- Max Ink at Table 16.
- Ray Tomczak at Table 17.
- Jonathan Riddle at Table 30.
- Bob Corby at Tables 24 & 25.
- Mike Carroll at Table 18.
- Michael R. Neno at Table 101.
- Mason Johnson at Table 29.
- Kel Crum at Table 124.
- Jim Rugg at Table 126.
- Nate Powell at Table 65.
- Sean McKeever at Table 84.
- Paul Hornschemeier at Table 128.
- Guy Davis at Table 48.
- Thomas Williams at Table 76.
Now, if you can’t make it to S.P.A.C.E. – don’t panic – you can still pick up copies of Punch-Up and Skottie Rocket, Gay Space Pirate. After the convention, both books will for sale in several local Columbus and Cleveland comic book shops – as well as online – but I’ll post more details on that later.
Needless to say, I’m pretty excited about the S.P.A.C.E. show. It’s should be a lot of fun.
Hope to see you there!
