This past weekend I attended Dallas Comic Con. It was a success, and by success I mean I made more money than I spent.
I had several interesting events transpire while I was there.
I go to meet Randy Milholland of Something Positive and Joel Watson of Hijinks Ensue. I have gotten piles of entertainment out of their comics, so I gave each of them a free copy of the game. They both knew my artist David Reddick and were impressed with his work.
While I was there I tried to sell my original Star Wars movie poster. It turns out, lots of people want to buy an original Star Wars movie poster. Not many want to pay near what it’s worth however.
At one point I woman with family in tow approached my booth, and I began my sales pitch. Due to the angle one of my booth banners blocked the view of me from most of the isle. Once I stepped out to show her more about the game I hear “Skippy?” It was a guy who lived in my dorm in college.
I had a Skippyslist fan come up to the booth. So far every single Con I go to contains at least one person who has heard of Skippyslist. And you’d better believe that I will find a way to milk that into a sale.
At one point as I was heading out to grab lunch when I overhead part of a sentence between two fans. “–a bunch of web comics, and he works for Garfield.”
