While I’d still prefer to be in San Francisco (it’s just a funner city) for WonderCon, this year’s WonderCon in Anaheim was quite enjoyable as a representative of BuyIndieComics.com, almost strictly. DWAP Productions has no booth at WonderCon this year – last year in Anaheim left us scarred and we couldn’t pull ourselves to do it again as vendors. But we did go back to Anaheim as professionals to speak on Robert Roach’s Insights into Indie Publishing panel and to see many of our friends and comic book family.
The Insights into Indie Publishing panel seemed to be a huge success with more than 100 people attending and filling the room. All participants gave their spiels and perspectives about indie comics and we got some incredible questions from audience participants. The highlight of the panel for me though was to have attendees from previous years come up and tell me that they had taken our suggestions and put together a comic. It’s always inspiring to have been an inspiration to someone and I wish them all the luck that comes with hard work.
Aside from the panel, we also got to see some of our favorite creators including but no limited to Oh, Hell Comics at booth SP-66, Coffee Table Comics at booth 1212, J & J Studios at booth SP-79, Boston Metaphysical Society at SP-61 and CME (Creative Mind Energy) at booth 913. They all had wonderful works that we look forward to reading. Some new friends for BuyIndieComics.com are Chris Kawagiwa at booth AA-148, Bleating Goat Comics at booth AA-221, and Vanquish Interactive at booth AA-060. All of these are exciting creators that seem to really have something interesting going on and we look forward to reading their books.
Now, the question the big question: Was WonderCon Anaheim 2013 so good that we’ll go back tomorrow? Only time will tell.
Never Enough Said.
