Comic Con International

To all my friends at Comic Con International…

As I mentioned in March, comic conventions no longer fit into my business plan for Evil Inc. There’s an awful lot of talk about how conventions aren’t about comics anymore — and there’s plenty of truth to that. But for me, this has always come down to simple math. Over the past few years, I’ve lost more money than I made at comic conventions. So I can’t justify going any longer. Moreover, the time I spend prepping and exhibiting at conventions makes me fall behind on the things that do bring money into my business — Patreon and Kickstarter.

Nevertheless, if you’re gonna be there, be sure to stop by and say hello to all of my friends who are going to be working their asses off to bring you cool things.

There’s no one who compiles a more comprehensive guide to independent comics and cartoonists at Comic Con that Fleen’s Gary Tyrrell. He’s got an annotated floormap showing you how to find all your favorites along with a breakdown of all of the programming that features indie creators — Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday! Here are a few must-see folks…

Scott Kurtz

Hit the WeLoveFine booth (#1316) for all your Table Titans and PvP desires!

Dave Kellett

Dave Kellett will be at Booth 1228 (in the Webcomics section of the floor), and he’s got a metric freaking ton of show exclusives and cool programming opportunities.

But wait! There’s more!

Blind Ferret is at Booth 1231 — be sure to stop by and say hello to my friends Ryan Sohmer and Lar DeSouza. Phil Foglio will be heading up the Girl Genius booth (#1331). Say hi to the delightful Rich Stevens at the Dumbrella booth (#1335). My fellow villainphile Aiden Casserly (Scapula) will be in the Small Press area at table P-12. I’m sure I’m missing a few! (If I missed you, please drop me a line!)
