|From Wizard World ...|
|From Motor City Co...|
Wolverine there really gets around, doesn't he? We've been attending Comic-Con International San Diego for 13 years now, so attending conventions themselves isn't all that unusual for us. What was unusual about Wizard World Chicago and Motor City Comic Con is that we were behind the table for a change instead of in front of it. That's right, we were there exhibiting books from our little self-publishing outfit, Strange Matter Comics. Randy's book Sangrael and Becky's Project ElOhIm: Entities of Interest both got warm receptions from the convention goers. Becky sold eight copies, which isn't bad for a totally unknown book at a small con.
This year, when we show up at the San Diego Con for the 14th time, it will be as exhibitors. That's going to be one heck of an experience. The other conventions are warm, fun little affairs where everybody's your neighbor and you're actually able to see that there is, in fact, a floor at the venue, instead of just assuming it's there because the people are obviously standing on something. Last year's attendance at San Diego was 114,000. That's more people than live in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where Randy calls home. It's going to be an adventure, that's for sure. If you're in San Diego this summer during Con week, stop by and say hello!
