Alternative-ly, I’ll be @ the New York Comic-Con

The First annual New York Comic-Con is invading the Javits Center this weekend, and I’ll be there along with selected other Alternative Comics artists: man_size, bertozzi, Sam Henderson, Jon Lewis, Karen Sneider, Bishakh Som, Sara Varon, Gabrielle Bell, etc. In fact, because publisher indymag can’t make it, I’ll be running the Alternative Comics booth, pimping not just my own stuff but the whole line.

I don’t know what to expect from this con, but I infer that they’re trying to ape the San Diego con in terms of mass market appeal. Personally, I DETEST mainstream conventions (which is why I appreciate SPX and MoCCA so muchly). In fact, I’m still meaning to write up a little something on the horror that was the last con I attended, Big Apple, back in November. But I digress.

If anyone is available to help me out at the Alternative booth during the con, in terms of meeting & greeting, handling sales, etc., I’ll make sure it’s worth your while in free merch.

Here’s my design for the giant (7-1/2 foot x 10 foot) booth backdrop at the show:

    Billy Dogma about to bump chests with cartoon Neufeld
    and the Sam Henderson cartoon yelling at the Graham Annabelle cartoon about to lose its mind are fabulous.
    I’d offer my services to help you out in terms of selling and keeping records, but if I did I’d want to be able to for at least three hours… and that’s a LOT of con time. The offer would be real though if I felt it could benefit me as well. E-mail me or something I guess:

    Josh –
    I can help you a bit on Sunday I think depending on my Buzzscope/Midtown Comics schedule… I have a panel at 2 but before that I can lend a hand for a while… would it be a big thing, though, if I placed a stack of NINETY CANDLES there to sell during the time I helped?
    And hey- if you count 911:ER and TRUE PORN, technically I’m an Alternative Comics creator!

    • 4_eyez says:

      your availability may be perfect for our Sunday schedule. let’s keep in touch about that. if you help, we’ll be glad to sell 90 CANDLES
      oh yeah – yer an A.C. vet!
