We’re back from Los Angeles and another successful Wizard World show.
Unfortunately, turnout was rather low this year. It probably didn’t help that the convention was scheduled on the same weekend as the LA Marathon, which left most of the downtown area closed off. Still, sales were pretty good, and we still had a great time.
We scored a corner booth and were parked across from Margot Kidder (Lois Lane) and Jack O’Halloran (Non from Superman II) and also across from the signing area, so at some point we were across from Ethan Van Sciver, Goeff Johns, Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes, and two of the Wayans brothers, Shawn and Marlon I think. So our placement was really great and we got some good traffic because of it.
Here’s Dave and me at the Ronin Studios booth:
I brought my ukulele and played it during the show. It brought a lot of traffic over to the booth and
entertained tortured passersby. I was even asked by Margot Kidder to sing her a song, and I also got to play for Noel Neill (the original Lois Lane from the old ’50s TV show).
Even Dave took a turn:
Here we are working on layouts for Scar Tissue #4:
There were two Supermans (Supermen?) across from us a lot as well, one being a very well-proportioned fellow who really looked the part…
…but the other one was rather skinny and we were taking bets as to whether his “endowment” was authentic.
Dave also did a fair amount of sketching for fans…
So there you have it. Be sure to come see us at San Diego Comic Con in July!
