This Sunday is the annual Edmonton Collectible Toy and Comic Show, which I’ve been an exhibitor at for the past two years. This year should be even more fun, because Rudi Gunther, Dan Schneider (artist of Zenescope’s Merc), and Brad Glenn and I have chipped in to get a pair of tables in the artist alley.
I’ll be there promoting HEAT and my new print comic, Hell, Inc. I also still have a few copies of Rent-A-Thug: First Offence left, as well as some leftover Rent-A-Thug hats. I’m also trying to come up with some kind of contest to boost readership. I have a pretty workable idea, I just need to fine-tune it a bit.
Hell, Inc. is my newest print comic, which released at Happy Harbor Comics during Indy Comic Book Week on December 30th. I’ve been describing it to people as The Office with demons, although I’ve consciously tried to avoid just recreating The Office with monsters instead of people. Our protagonist, Doug, works for Hell, Inc., which is the company in charge of running Hell. Hassles and awkwardness ensue. You should buy it.
I’ll also be part of a panel discussion with Dan Schneider (Merc), Bob Prodor and James Davidge (The Duchess Ranch of Old John Ware) at 11 AM. We’re going to be regaling the audience with yarns about the glories and pitfalls of independent comicking. I imagine there will also be some shameless plugging of our books and Q and A with the audience.
