Event Report: Free Comic Book Day 2008
Free Comic Book Day at Dragons Keep is always fun, and this year we had a great ensemble of talent. Chad, Mandy, Kevin, JJ, Dave and I had a good time talking, sketching, and committing commerce. Spider-Man himself dropped by for a bit (he even signed a few comics as "Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man").
My only complaint... Smart Howard never even checked into the building. I did a bunch of sketches, but didn't have the brain space to tackle anything complex. Chad, meanwhile, knocked down some GORGEOUS sketch cards, inked AND colored. It was pretty humbling.
A couple of interesting merchandise ideas reared their heads. The most amusing: Schlock cross-stitch patterns. They'd be cheap as nothing to print, but kind of a pain to design. Question: would YOU pay $10 for a nice cross-stitch pattern (you stitch it yourself) of one of the SHoHEPirates Rules with an illustration?
Following the event, Kevin Wasden, Chad Hardin and I went out to eat, and I ate too much. Good friends, good conversation, good sushi, good times...
