Comics XP


By the way, if you've been hesitant to try the book out, the #0 issue is now available on Comics XP for only 99 CENTS!

Soon a special edition of the #1 preview book complete with the contest winners' pinups will also be available on CXP.

So spend a dollar and check it out, then come back here and let us know what you think!

Mid-Ohio-Con Report

Well folks, Wannabez did ok at MOC this year. Not as well as hoped, but then we basically had the same issue at the show last year, so it went as well as was expected.

I sold a few copies on Saturday, none on Sunday. I did put an issue in the hands of a fourth grade teacher and a couple of friends, and several people showed interest in the book and took a card or buttons.

We also had a friend of Comic Related handing out postcards for us to everyone that passed, so a lot of people went home with info on Wannabez at least.

Here's a pic of me at the booth:

Scott was at the booth to my left, and on his left was Comic Related. On my right was artist Arvell Jones, who is a super nice guy. Wanda, the lady that was with him was also very nice.

Not as grandiose a booth as previous shows, but I had several other books aside from Wannabez I was trying to sell as well, so Wannabez was only part of the display this time. Next year, we're hoping to do something different, so stay tuned.


I was also on a panel on which I got to plug Wannabez a couple of times, so that was cool. Scott also was on a panel and plugged it.

We also announced the winners of the first Wannabez contest, and you can find out those winners on the Wannabez Forums.

All in all, I'd call it a somewhat successful show. I would like to than Bill and James Henry, the organizers of the event, for inviting us back as guests this year and thus supporting our book. We look forward to next year!
