Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

I haven't yet but I want to. I could have last year. I really have been neglecting my social life.

The world misses you and your infectious personally, Zika. You are a bright ray of sunshine in these nasty corona times.

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

I just don't want to go anywhere stag anymore. I need a friend to go to these things with, yet everyone I met is just as shy as I am. It's awful.

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

I like your screen name!

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

I used to go to the UK Comic Art Convention during the 1980s and 1990s but was always a guest so never paid. Last one I went to was in 1989.

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

I went as a guest as well, and also as a performer.

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

I knew you were a famous actress!

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

Yeah apparently she thinks that I'm Shamu. Noice, right?

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

I had a couple of good moments on the stage but apart from being on some panels I mainly sold comics and hung out but the funniest experiences came from signing autographs for people who obviously didn’t know who I was.

They thought you were Mr Bean?

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

They just saw that I was an artist/writer but had no idea what I worked on.

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

The authors I worked for were the ones on the panels, so I was spared. I'm quite glad, too!

So you had your comics published? Like into books?

I remember when I wasn't working, I'd wander around the tables at the various artwork and different mediums.

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

Mainly self published small press stuff. Most attempts at being professionally published didn’t take off and my most successful gig was for a computer mag.

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

Comic-Con events are a great way to get exposure. There is such a wide variety of event-goers that attend. You know that, you've been there. There are tables set up and people have their artwork set out.

Have you thought about other mediums, like tee-shirts or posters too? I think your artwork is clever and witty, and very well-drawn. Art events are great cultural resources.

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

I lost my get up and go when we got the kids and I was doing office work by then which paid a lot more. If I ever get the comic I’m supposed to be working on finished I’ll bypass print and sell it as a digital publication.

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

Well to be honest, that's the way things are nowadays anyway.

Life changes…

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

One day I will. Hopefully San Diego since that's the big one.

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

It's been my unfulfilled desire for many years.

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

It's one of those things that you feel like, everyone has done except for me and you feel left out.

Re: Did anyone attend a Comic Con?

Not quite the same thing but I just found out about this. Friends of mine are appearing on a few panels.
