Last night, when I blogged about Comikaze Day 01, I was exhausted and it shows in my writing. But that’s how first days of shows can be: exhausting. Plain and simple. The last day of a show is typically the same way – so two day shows are hell-like in that way. But tonight, I feel surprisingly spry. Well, spry enough to write what I hope to be a better post about Comikaze Day 02.
In terms of sales, DWAP Productions performed much better today than yesterday and Elbis sold very well with several self-proclaimed “cat lovers”. It was nice to see people genuinely interesting in our books and willing to shell out some hard-earned cash to read and own them. I’d like to chalk this up to today being cooler in LA, less lines to get into the convention hall and a little more hustle on our part but who knows. Conventions can be fickle creatures.
Even after yesterday’s mega-haul of wonderful indie books that I’m excited to have in my stack, I was still able to find several books that look great:
- I Can Be a Shark by Carolyn Tom
- OMGcow: a Comic Diary April 2012 by our very own Sheika Lugtu
- Forever Freshman by Neil Segura and Ray Mendivil
- Trigger Men by Mike Andersen and Heather Brinesh
- Burger Force 2-5 by Jackie Ryan
- Pluto Moon Base by Harrington, Munoz, Garland and Fowler
- Footprints by Esposito and Moore
