ARMAGEDDON - October [17-18] 2009

Postby bluetoaster on Fri Sep 18, 2009 9:19 am

Who's going?!

Jason Franks and I will be there selling our books (collectively about 10-15 titles!) - as well as a few other people's books if we have room on our table.

Come past and say hello!
*Ahemm... with your money.

Yep, got a booth. Second run of Vol II for sale - if I can just get it to Baden (many probs with files).

I waited way too late and missed out on getting a table!
Does anybody have some room?

Woohoo! Tis but a day away!

I get the feeling that a lot of creators think these things are a chore, but I bloody love 'em. I'd take the chance to do these things at any time over my full time job (jizz mopper).

Here's what I'm looking forward to:
-Grabbing Bobby N.'s new book. Simply can't wait.
-Grabbing Jason Franks’ latest Kagemono. I've seen what this man has gone through getting this baby together. Each one has gotten stronger so this should be a delightful read.
-Seeing all the local creators showcasing their works.
-Selling and signing my work and talking to genuinely interested people.
-The atmosphere. Half the fun of these things is the people watching.
-Meeting some more celebs. Last year I had The Greatest American Hero and Ernie Hudson (who I knew from The Crow, not Ghostbusters) at my booth.

Things I'm not looking forward to:
-Post Con (Sunday night) drinks where all the creators will be drinking beers…and bagging me out cause I’ll be on the lemon lime and bitters (only 2 weeks of Ocsober to go! Thank Christ.).

See ya there guys!

It was nice catching up with people, especially as I can't regularly make the Saturday's anymore... but does anyone else get the feeling the weekend could have been spent more productively and profitably by ringing comic shops individually and hocking your books directly to them instead?

Great to see some Colin Wilson and Tom Taylor goodies (Star Wars: Invasion, Example, Flinch) amongst the booty :)

I took a few photos of Colin and Tom and of the after-con dinner and drinks with Nicola Scott, Greg Rucka, Ben Stenbeck et al which can be seen here - http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryRoom.asp?GSub=89118

Best,
