This is the booth, dutifully manned by colorist, Sara Rude while I take the picture. For a first day, I can report that it went very well. We only made a few sales, but we gave out a lot of free stickers which people seemed to respond to. Who doesn't like free swag, right?
Needless to say, being in St. Louis, the Dogtown print got a lot of attention. I also got a chance to chat with the awesome Chris Samnee (Daredevil, Thor: Mighty Avenger) before the convention began, who's friendliness was only overwhelmed by his talent.
I had the great fortune of meeting a lot of other really nice people, a few of whom had actually read the comic online, which was a very pleasant surprise. Tomorrow is going to be a big day, we expect to see a lot of people corralled through the convention floor, which means we'll be giving out a lot of stickers, I'm sure.
And of course, there were a lot of great costumes. I've never been able to commit to cosplay, myself, but I appreciate the hobby for what it is. Here are a few of the cool costumed people who swung by our booth.
|Nightwing and Batgirl|
|Superman and Wonder Woman|
Both Sara and I are looking forward to a fun day tomorrow. Thanks to everyone who visited the booth!
