Post- Motor City Comic Con

Well, I’m still rather tired after a big weekend at Motor City Comic Con, but I’ll try to say a few words about the show.  First, the show is absolutely massive!  The amount of talented people and the amount of attendees is truly amazing!  In fact, the attendance was so big this year is caused some trouble on roads leading to the convention center!  I do feel sorry for people who waited for hours to get into the show, but I hope they had a great time once they got inside.

Personally, I had a blast!  I talked with some great people, including the legendary George Perez, one of the greatest comic creators ever and the inspiration for many of my recent statuary work!  The other creators around me were great people and interacting with them made the experience fantastic!  The people who came by my table, whether they bought something or not were friendly and kind.  But an extra thank you to those who did buy something!  I am still rather awed that anyone would want to own something made by me, and very flattered that people are willing to pay some money to own my work!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!  I’m not awed that people want to buy my wife’s creations, especially the crocheted Cthulhus, but I still thank you and so does she!  I also would like to acknowledge all the kids who show interest in the stuff on my table.  There are plenty of adults (young at heart) who buy from me, but the work that covers my table is especially kid-friendly and I love their reactions and questions about my work.

I also tried to promote my upcoming Out with Dad comic (see here for details) to as many people as I could.  Most sounded impressed so I hope they check out the series and spread the word!  And hopefully, next year when I see those folks, they can give me their reactions and reviews!

Speaking of reviews, I picked up some more comics at Motor City by some really cool creators, and I will need to review them here in the future.  I have barely started my reviews of the comics I got at SPACE last month, however, so I hope you’ll all be patient with me!

And I think I’ll end today by posting some pictures of statues I made especially for this event!
