This are a whirlwind here at GhostThunder HQ so this blog is going to do double duty!
First: San Francisco Comic Con wrap up. Man, what a great show! After some initial load in issues (seriously, 200 bucks to cart our stuff to our booth?!), the show went well. Tons of engaged fans and positive energy all around. It helped that our booth mates, Dave and Nicole, are both energetic and positive people. They kept things fun and feisty. When you are exhibiting, it can be very draining, especially for a three day show! We really appreciate every single sale we make and even every person who says “that’s cool” as they walk by. So thank you SF, see you next year!
Second: Crocker Con. Oh boy, this one means a lot to us. If you’ve never heard of it (and let’s be honest, you probably haven’t) it’s a small, local con at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento. On a Thursday night. For 4 hours. I know what you’re thinking, “Dave, what’s the big deal?”. Well, Crocker Con was GhostThunder’s first convention. So this marks our anniversary. Our third! Wow, the time flies! And it’s a terrific show, full of people who wouldn’t normally go to a convention, but are genuinely interested in art and the artistic process. And there is booze. It is also a curated show focusing on local, Sacramento creators so it’s a great place to network, find a support group of other local comics folks. We really love, love this show! If you’re close to Sacramento you NEED to get to this show!
