San Diego Comic-Con wrap-up

Comment

So another San Diego Comic-Con has come and gone and I’ve come to realize how unmarketing a guy I am. Seriously, I didn’t even make any business cards, and I talked to a few people who were interested in learning more about INFERNO 2010 and how they can help.

But that’s a small down side to a big bright side: We’re almost done with the pencilling! We’re also doing some rewrites and inking and coloring the artwork, but if things go as planned we expect to go to press early in the new year. Talking to a couple other graphic novel writers, I’ve come to appreciate just how much progress we’ve made and how few problems we’ve had.

Even as we’re finishing INFERNO 2010, we’re also making plans for promoting it in the 2012 comics convention season. We’re applying for a spot in San Diego Comic-Con’s Small Press Pavilion. Last year, 350 small publishers applied for 100 available spots in the section. The final selections are chosen by jury, and we’re doing our best to make our case. But no matter what happens there, we intend to have a presence at the con.

In addition, we’re making plans for upcoming West Coast conventions starting in the Spring including WonderCon, APE and events in Seattle, Portland and Vancouver, as well a local L.A. area shows. It’s also possible we may do some shows in other parts of the U.S., such as SPX.

So there’s your prognosis for the coming year. And if you got the Award where you appear in the book, and haven’t sent us your pics yet, please do so soon!
