Rock and Comic-Con


Theater marquee.

The past Saturday (5/21) was Rock and Comic-Con at the Uptown Theater in KCMO. This show was just a lot of fun. Lots of interesting vendors, dealers, and creators were on hand. The show was set up with 3 separate con floors and 3 separate concert stages. I love the set up for this show and believe it has a great future. I really hope it is successful and continues for years to come.


Some dork outside the theater.

The attendees had great energy and they seemed genuinely interested in our work and were not afraid to interact with us. I can's say that for most comic cons that I have attended.

I sold quite a few books and sketches and heard quite a bit of positive feedback from folks who attended the show. Much to my surprise, folks seemed to really respond to Skwishee, the zombie goldfish bit character from Death Fears the Bunny. But there was a lot of positive response for Bunny, Thunderdawg, and Gentleman Jak.


Skishee.

I am still feeling the buzz from attending a great con and I am riding a creative high. It is time to back down to work on the next book or two on the slate. I have 2 more cons on the schedule for this year and I would like to have a new book for each of those.

Also, I will doing an interview for Comic Book Late Night with Captain Logan from Geekvolution. I assume we will be talking about my comics, my background and my reading habits as well as some other odds and ends. It should be a lot of fun. I will post a link here when the show comes out.

That is all for now, but check back soon for some pics from the con and possibly a strip or two, some more preview stuff from DFTB and other news.

Thanks for looking,
Bill

Oh $#!+%& Moment

Well tomorrow is the Rock and Comic-Con. I have the book ready to go, posters printed and ready to hang, I may even bring some old books if I can find them.

I am not satisfied with my effort on Death Fears the Bunny, but I am proud that I did it all myself. I do recognize that it was a great experience for me, and a fantastic learning experience. I fully expect my next work to be much better.

I did run the concept passed my BFF Doz and then my wife (Pam) edited the book for me. Other than that, it was a one man show.

Anyway, if you are in the KC area tomorrow try to swing by the Uptown Theater and pay us a visit. You might have a really good time.

I will wrap this up with another preview from the book. This is the oh shit moment from the story when Death comes face-to-face with the Bunny.



Thanks for looking,

Cover

More and more it looks like I may not have a book for FCBD. I have been making some progress, but a busy weekend combined with the fact the PhotoShop would not launch on my home computer, has put me behind schedule.

I did finish the cover yesterday so I thought I would go ahead and post a preview image. What you see is about 97% complete. I may add some website info and a print date before it goes to the printer.

I hope you like it and I hope you can come out to see us on FCBD and at Rock and Comic-Con.
