Finally got around to unloading my camera. I don’t even remember this photo being shot, but I guess that just goes to show how crazy the whole weekend was.
Something has gone “terribly wrong,” Oliver. Terribly wrong with my facial hair! I totally botched my beard-trimming last Friday and ended up with a serious chin-strap. I look like a sweaty Guillermo Del Toro. Oh well!
Facial hair mishaps notwithstanding, a very nice video. Thanks for featuring us on your blog, Victoria!
Armed with only our comic, some props, and a flipcam, Mike and I set forth to get our comic to readers at the 2010 New York Comic Con. It was an amazing experience. Talking to readers and seeing them get excited by the idea of our comic was incredible. We are honored that people even stopped to hear our pitch. Thank you so much to everyone we met at the NYCC. We hope that you enjoy the book and stick with us for issue 2 and beyond!
And if you didn’t pick up the book, please check out our preview.
New York Comic Con was pretty amazing. To all the new folks visiting this site after discovering us at the convention: welcome! If you picked up the comic, drop us a line (by leaving a comment below, or via email) and let us know what you thought! Or—if you didn’t get a copy of the NYCC edition this weekend—check out the preview pages and stay tuned to this blog: we’ll update with info on ordering issue #1 as soon as it’s finished.
We’ll also be posting our thoughts, photos, and videos from our experience at the convention, as soon as we’ve had a chance to decompress and sort through everything. In the meantime, check out this awesome bit of technology I found via Kickstarter. Old-school L.A. graffiti artist TEMPT1 suffers from Lou Gehrig’s Disease, which has left him paralyzed. Now with the help of the EyeWriter system, he can paint by simply moving his eyes. (Video and thoughts under the jump.)
New York Comic Con starts in THREE DAYS! Holy crap. We’re going a little crazy getting everything ready, but it’s also SUPER exciting to finally be bringing Chapter One of our story to the public. If you’re anywhere near New York City, I highly suggest you come out to the Javits Center this weekend; it should be a blast.
We’ll be in the Small Press area of the exhibition floor, at booth 352, which we’re sharing with the lovely and talented Christiann of www.stickycomics.com. Oliver and I will be dressed in lab coats and sporting some silly “mad science” toys, so we should be hard to miss, but if you need some extra help finding us, here’s a partial map of the show floor pointing out where we’ll be:
This will be the only chance you’ll have to get the exclusive “New York Comic Con Edition” of Issue #1 before the regular edition comes out. Guaranteed* to be a collectors item for years to come! Stop on by!
