We're now into 2016 and Comic Convention Season is heating up! With that in mind, I wanted to send an quick update on the conventions I've got lined up for this year. As ever, these are subject to change, but I'll be on top of letting folks know if that happens.
- March 25-27: WonderCon (L.A. Convention Center) - My first show of the year, and my third time exhibiting. This is always a lot of fun, and this year will be even more so as I'll have the first two trade paperbacks of Nutmeg with me as well as some other goodies. The new venue for the show should mean some new faces, too. You can find me at J30 in Artists' Alley.
- April 7-10: Emerald City Comicon (Seattle, WA) - Jackie Crofts, Josh Eckert, and I had a blast last year at our first convention with our book officially at Action Lab Entertainment. Everyone was very warm and receptive, and Seattle was great. We'll be stationed at Booth U10 in Artists' Alley this year, so come on by! We can't wait to go back up north.
- May 14-15: TCAF aka Toronto Comic Arts Festival (Toronto, ON) - I've only been to T Dot once, but it was great, and being able to experience THE comic convention there will be immense. Both Jackie and I will be there for our first international comic convention both as attendees and exhibitors. Everything we've heard about this show is great, and we're super excited to be attending. (Note: While Jackie and I are going to be in attendance with Nutmeg, the table is listed under my name.)
- May 21-22: VanCAF aka Vancouver Comic Arts Festival (Vancouver, BC) - You read that right: back-to-back trips to Canada on back-to-back weekends. Vancouver is said to be beautiful and I imagine that will hold true in mid-May. Heard very good things about this show, and a couple friends will be there, and I'll be joining them on a panel it looks like! I'm about as nervous as can be.
- July 20-24: San Diego Comic-Con (San Diego, CA) - This one is still a bit tentative due to the day job, but it's looking pretty likely it will happen. If it does, you can bet I'll be signing at the Action Lab booth again this year. We're hoping to get Jackie to come out as well, as we had a blast last year (and a lot of fish tacos), and I know a second year under our belts will be even better.
As I get more info about these and other shows, I'll pass them along!
