So Winston-Salem Comic Con was yesterday. Sold a few comics, talked with a handful of humans and even had a visit from my parents. But mostly I was amazed at how many people could cram into the relatively narrow aisles. Half the convention was like watching zombie hordes pass by. I had my screen set up so people could watch me work, but people rarely noticed. They seemed to be generally in too much of a hurry to get down the aisle.
|Travis Tomblin with Canada Jack, eh?|
I had some nice folks selling art on one side of me and to the other I had Travis Tomblin, a comic creator/writer from West Virginia who does a superhero comedy series called Canada Jack. Amazingly, Canada Jack is a public domain character from the 1940s. In Tomblin's absolutely hilarious modern take on it, we find out not all Canadians are polite. Why? Reasons, Johnson,
I practically finished page four of issue five at the con. I put the final polish on it just now. At the very least, it's great the con got me to do another page.
I'll post some panels from it soon and hopefully start on page five this week.
And one sad, extremely random casualty of the con was my custom Lavender Ranger figure. One of his spikes fell out when I took him out of my convention supply box. I'll try to super glue it back on and see if it holds
