Out of the Pages event went great!

Tuesday, October 24th, 2006

Last night was amazing! Just being on the stage with other creators and the very appreciative audience was an amazing experience. GMHC brought out a great crowd and it was one of the most crowded MOCCA events I’ve ever attended! The audience had some good questions and I was approached afterwards by some very sweet fans, even people who knew me from XY and were surprised to find out I’m a girl. Neat! Hopefully some pics will come up soon. It was also my first swag bag I ever got for doing a comics event. Star treatment sure feels nice after all the solitary work of making comics. I got these pics off of Howard Cruse’s blog. Check it out!

Saturday, October 21st, 2006

The party went great and we had some yummy cupcakes from Billy’s Bakery and Trader Joe’s 3 buck Chuck to make it extra sweet. Matt was very well spoken when he made a speech and it was all in all a great success! Here are a few pics:

SPX report!

Monday, October 16th, 2006

Matt and I had a major blast at SPX. As you can see here, he was acting silly and making new fans at the Oni Press booth. He sold out of all the Sidescrollers copies they brought! I sold most of my books too which is a good thing because we had to schlep home on the bus. We must arrange a ride next year. Our bus driver was psycho!
Anyway, it was great seeing all the other comix folks and I even got to present an Ignatz award which was very cool. The new location at the Marriot was nice and there were loads of drink tickets to be had at the parties. All in all a great con experience. Here are some pics!

P.A.N.I.C. and Manganext!

Monday, October 9th, 2006

I had a crazy comix-filled weekend and it was a blast! Last night Matt and I exhibited our comics at the awesome Punk and Independent Comics show at Bowery Poetry Club. We got to sell comix, meet new people, see old friends, and experience some rock and roll! Check out these pics!

We got to see the always awesome World War IX and The Shades whose lamp shade gimmick was hilarious!

Then today I checked out Manganext in NJ. I got to be on several panels and met lots of cool folks. it’s neat seeing how manga fandom is growing and evolving. It’s also just exciting that manga has it’s own convention here! A highlight was meeting the ladies of DramaQueen, a publisher that’s bringing over some cool yaoi manga as well as some really neat Manwha (Korean comics) I really enjoyed the one called DVD by Kye Young Chon. It’s just got a really interesting, funny, story and art style. Plus a punk boy character. Yeah!
