Hurrah!
And it looks like Mr. Riot and Wing and Kris are there too o.o

That's a nice list to see.
I guess the DD people got filtered down/dropped out >: D
Thanks for the link!

Who forgot to keep checking this thread? Oh, I DID!
I'm going to appologize to all of you ahead of time. It is very possible that, due to my short attention span, I will start yelling things like Grimlock from transformers (i.e.: Me, Mr. Riot, want more Mountain Dew!).

I'm looking foward to this like you guys wouldn't believe. Anything like a DD Crew party planned?

Um, on a serious note…are we all meeting up somewhere and signing in as a group? Do we just show up and get our badges like regular con-goers? This will be the first con in a while that I won't be wandering around blind in a Snake Eyes visor, so the whole booth thing is quite new to me. Anybody like Mr. Granger a vet at this? Advice?

Ok, I'll shut up now. I have to draw tomorrow's page ayways.

Can't wait to meet you guys!

I have the same questions as riot.

Party? Dragon Lova said we were planning some DD party or something like it. I'm sure it'll be a conglomeration of people from Platinum and DD. Or maybe platinum'll get to play the big kids games, and we'll get a pinata!
Sign in? Can't answer that. That'd be a good one though.

It seems like there's only 5 of us going to this now.
Is that the case?

I was scouring the list over at WizardWorld and I saw about 8 or 9 names from DD I recognised. Also, if you look by table #s, you can see what DDers are gonna be there. I think we're 2208-2212

Heh. Platinum will be playing “Spin the bottle” and we'll all be stuck in the kids' room with over-sized legos so we can't choke on them.

What I know for sure is that Lori Petty will be there and she is not leaving that con without signing my “Tank Girl” dvd! This, I COMMAND!

I guess the real question is, “What happened to Marine”
and is he still attending?

Sounds really cool. I've never been to a con, well, not an art/comic/game/fun con, only work related ones. =[ I think I'll try to go next year.

So…anybody else getting pre-con jitters? I feel like I drank too much Dew then ate a pound of pop-rocks. As excited as I am about going to WW, I've got this, “Wait a second…what am i THINKING?!” vibe. I think it's just because ComixPress screwed me and I won't have any printed issues (except the mini ones I made at Kinko's…still trying to figure out if I should bother bringing them).

What's everyone else bringing? I had a real limited number of prints made, some flyers, and a few postcards(and by “postcards, I mean ”lookit what I printed out on my HP photo printer!").I know Granger and Coffman are big-wig, already-published types, so they have cool stuff. I'm a tiny-wig, happy-anyone-reads-my-comic-at-all type. So, really, I don't take myself seriously enough to do any hard-core promoting. I'll just be happy if someone doesn't try to burn down my table for being a Mignola wannabe. I'm probably going to draw, talk to anyone who happens by, and bug the rest of you with crazy ideas.

I'm bringing a book, an iPod, and a debit card. We'll see how the trip goes yes?

Also: Dunno if we talked about crashing, but if someone could lend me a room for a night or two, that'd rock hard. A floor/sofa would be perfect, and I'm about as non-intrusive as you can get. Looooooosssss Aaaaannnggeeellleeessss!

Also: Is there an official schedule or tips on when/where to show up or any tips for anyone who's never been to a con before?

Also: Party?

Hey hey- Coffman checking in here. Looking forward to meeting you guys/gals out there.

Mr. Riot- Sorry to hear about your comixpress mis-mash. Logan is good people there, I'm sure he feels pretty bad about it, they had a hell of a time with a press being down or something I hear.

As for what to bring, do bring any books you have, minicomics or whatever. Shoot, i came from minicomics and I love that stuff. You can do well with it too, you'd be surprised.

For anyone not knowing what to do there, or what to bring, one thought you should imbed in your mind is that it's a chance to meet new readers, so have something handy to send them to your site. They'll likely have boatloads of flyers to throw away, so it's sort of like “spamming” people at shows. Best thing you can EVER do is talk to people at your table and offer to draw free drawings– make friends, make connections, build readers for you and YOU are your own brand! Get out there and have fun.

Wow…to be put in with DJ. I'm honored.

We all start small, in fact I'm still pretty small. I don't have the showgirls or big banners hanging throughout LA like DJ. And at NY we had many of the big Image, Marvel, DC, etc. guys coming over and I didn't feel very big next to them. You just have to get over that feeling and realize that you've got something special to show.

And you know…I didn't even get that connection to Mignola. I like your style and his, but don't think it's too much alike. I've got a new series coming to DD (and print) that might get that as well.

Here's a sample…

It's still very weird to hear that I'm “big”, because inside I'm still the small press hooligan I was 10 years ago. The real key is to never give up, and surround yourself with positive people and stay away from negative nancies.

Did you really just say “negative nancies”?

Man, none of you have any idea how excited I am to sit in the same area as the rest of you. I'm a little kid pretty much. Freshman in college, no real idea what I'm going to do. An amateur at best in any trade. But just the same I get to share the room with a bunch of great artists! I'm excited. Hopefully I'll learn a lot. I'm sure I will.

Quick question: Anyone know what time we should meet up there?

THIS IS GOING TO BE SO EXCITING!! I literally can't wait to meet all of you!!!

*does a backflip*


Anyways.. back to the reason I came here to write something…

Just some added info for you all who will be there and having a booth with us at the Artist Alley:


Ok so the in the final analysis we have attending:


MrRiot
Stardusty
Zac
kitsunekage
Mr Mustard Seed
Mr. Granger
hpkomic
Marine
DJCoffman (already a star! whew!)

Now, here is where you will be located/tables assigned:

James Riot Mr Riot 2208/A
Andrew Brennan Stardusty 2208/B
Zac Freudt Zac 2209/A
Derek Croston kitsunekage 2209/B
Tom Carroll Mr. Mustard Seed 2210/A
Shawn Granger Mr. Granger 2210/B
David Davis hpkomic 2211
Matthew Bojangles Marine 2212
DJ Coffman DJ Coffman 2207


These are the tables that are assigned in the Drunk Duck Alley. We actually have a little more space than we thought we would have (hey, it's better than not enough space and people get left out, right?) so we're going to be spreading people out amongst the tables. So even though it LOOKS like hpkomic and Marine are getting full tables, they are not. We gots to be fair…


Also if anyone is still interested in being put on the guest list for the party at IFL let me know ASAP!

We'll make sure we take lots of cheesy pictures and videos to put up for everyone to see!


Woo!

Let me know if you have any more questions, I'm more than willing to help out!!!

Zac…I ACT like a little kid, so we'll get along just fine. Especially once the pop-rocks and mountain dew kick in. It's looking like I'm next to Mr. Coffman over there…hmm…I'm hoping for run-off foot traffic. “Wow, that Hero-By-Night guy is awesome. Aww…lookit this sad little guy. Let's pretend his stuff is good too…” People of Wizard World…PLACATE MY EGO!

So, DL…will you be rainbow painted, or should I look for the bottom picture? I'm kind of hard to miss. Big loud guy consistently in a Bad Religion t-shirt.

Ummm excuuuuuuse me but whoever had the idea that cute girls and comics/sci-fi/fantasy/super heros don't go together? Helllooooooo.

Anyhoos… off the subject of egos now completely ^_^ …


Ok I know I've been sending you guys a lot of messages… well… deal with it because I have one more to send out to all you guys. Hopefully you get it and read it before tomorrow because it concerns “rules of conduct at Wizard World”.


Peace yo.

So is it safe to assume all of you folks at Platinum are this serious about promoting comics? That you treat Cons like battlefields? :D
