Whew! Now wasn’t THAT a party.
Folks, Calgary Comic Expo was far and away our best show yet. We sold out of all our print copies of Twilight Detective Agency #1, sold out of our table-bling magnets and sundries and met some truly GREAT people.
The best compliment a creator can ever hear is when someone asks: “Is there any more?”
Thunder issues 1-3 were the best sellers over the course of the weekend, generating steady interest and return customers who had bought issue 1 and were hooked! It seems that they, like we, were starved for some Canadian heroes! Maybe one day, Thunder can meet Captain Canuck!
The show itself was as huge as ever — some 50 000+ attendants, according to the Calgary SUN– but the traffic flow was marvelous. Another thing that made the difference to TwoGargs was our choice to move our presence from the Small Press area to Artist’s Alley. Not only was there a steady stream of people coming past the table but there were lots of people to help out and watch tables when bathroom breaks were needed! Great group of folks in Artist’s Alley– professional creators, first-timers, artists and crafters– you should always make the Alley part of your convention experience. This is where you’ll find the next Gail Simone or Jim Lee! (or even the current ones!)
TwoGargs already has a table for next year– and if you missed us this year, don’t forget that all our comics are available thru IndyPlanet!
