I’m back from WizardWorld Chicago, and have finally caught my breath. Most of the trip was in a car late at night or early in the morning; that takes a toll on a guy.
So how was it? In a word, slow. I was stuck in the offshoot of Artists Alley, off of the main group. Everyone I spoke with in the area reported to me that it wasn’t just me; there was not much traffic moving through our area. Someone told me that they were turned off by the Drunk Duck webcomic people at the front of our area. Apparently they were a bit obnoxious. I don’t have any first hand experience with that issue though, so it is hard to say.
It was an interesting first-time experience though. Here are a few things I’ll be working on for my next con appearance:
It was a good learning experience, and despite the slow days I did make some good connections with some people. It definitely wasn’t a waste of time at all. Had a good time with the creators of GearHead, who have the best by-line in comics: Hopeless Mellon. That is gold. Dennis and Kevin were great. The Shocktraumanauts in attendance were great company (as always – it’s amazing we all get along so well). Also thanks to my table neighbors Jason and Ethan, without which I surely would have died from boredom by Friday afternoon.
