A-KON has been a memorable convention for me over the last few years. I always meet tons of great readers, hang out with friendly fellow webcomickers and participate in panels that are as entertaining for me as they appear to be for those in attendance. Oh, and I always sell most, if not all of my merchandise. That's nice, too.
While there were countless memorable moments over the weekend, two stand out in my mind as of this writing.
A gentleman came up to my table and had the honest-to-goodness balls to say to my face, "Hey, I have to admit that I only read Dominic Deegan to make fun of it." I proceeded to invite him to visit my table again so we could talk about what he didn't like about the comic. What followed was a polite, civil discussion and critique of my comic. It was an overall pleasant experience.
A young lady of about nineteen or twenty (in a gorgeous Poison Ivy outfit) came up to my table and, in one sentence, made me feel absolutely awesome and incredibly old. She said, "I started reading Dominic Deegan when I was eleven years old. I basically grew up reading your comic." Wow.
THE WAR IN HELL will go up for sale tomorrow in the SEERS CATALOG. I made sure to send out all of the pre-orders before A-KON so if you haven't received your copy yet, rest assured that it's on the way.
That's all from me for now.
