NY Comic Con a Success!on October 17, 2011 at 12:00 pm
It was a long weekend — Thursday through Sunday, but I have to say that it was definitely a success. The place was packed! 105,000 people showed up to fill the halls of the Jacob Javitz Center in New York City and Suburban Fairy Tales had a great presence.
Suburban Fairy Tales was in the Small Press area, booth #2841. We were right next to Artists’ Alley, so we had a great location. It was so busy at times that you couldn’t even move! I was lucky enough to meet some current fans face to face and I also made a bunch of new ones. Oh, and I also got interviewed by a puppet.
The newest Suburban Fairy Tales book, This Little Piggy Gets Even, was being sold at the booth and came with a free sketch. Let’s just say that I couldn’t draw the sketches fast enough!
I want to thank all the fans who came to the booth and supported the comic strip. You guys really are the best! I’d also like to thank the people who helped me run the booth. There’s no way I could have done it without you! Special thanks to Alina, Stephanie, Pete, and my wife LeeAnne. And another thanks to Chris and Eric, who shared a small section of my booth in the beginning, until they happened to get a booth of their own.
