It always take me a little bit of time to recover from a convention. It seems the more fun I have at a con, the longer it takes me to recover. Given that it has taken me over a week to write about SPX, you can imagine how much fun I had doing this show.
I meet some many wonderful creators and fans. Really way too many to mention here and I’m still wading through the websites of all the artists whose business cards I picked up. I did however want to single out my fantastic neighbors. At a convention having cool and nice neighbors is key to a good show. They’re the ones who’ll watch your table when you need to run out for lunch (like that actually happens) or use the rest room. They’re the ones who you chat with when there are lulls and commiserate with when sales aren’t where you’d like them to be.
At SPX I was lucky enough to have on my left Sean Dillon and Steven Petrivelli, whom I was splitting the table with. I’ve know these guys for a little while now and it’s always fun talking comics with them. They have a really fun all ages book called Sweetie. Check it out HERE.
To my right was Win Evens. This was the first time we had officially met, but as coincident would have it, we’re from the same general area of the Philly suburbs. I’m sure that our paths have crossed a time or two without even realizing it. Wither we had met before or not this was first chance to see her amazing art. Do yourself a favor and check out her stuff HERE.
Not to bury the lead too much, but The Chronicles of the Tal Nor issue #1 will be released on Comixology tomorrow. That’s right, starting 9/28/2016 at 9am or so east coast time, you will be able to buy the first issue for $1.99 on Comixology. I’m so excited to offer the book on yet another platform. It was a long process to get it posted and I wish they had given us a little more lead time to promote the book, but I know how hard every one there works. They’re flooded with submissions and do a fantastic job of getting comics out into the world. Also they have add the exclusive Comixology guided view to the comic.
This link will become lives sometime between 9am and 10 am tomorrow. If you are at all interested in picking up the book or just have two bucks to donate to the cause, please buy it tomorrow. It’s my hope to get a ground swell of support on the release day. If we get enough people buying on Wednesday, it will help push the book on to their front page and a few more people might just give it a try. Thank you for your support.
