First day of NY Comic-con and I’m asking myself the same question I did in San Diego – why did I do this?
To be fair, Thursday is preview night – so it is exhibitors, professionals and press – and I guess some people who bought 4 day passes. But my god, it better get a little more lively.
The cost of these conventions far outweighs possible profits. Unless of course you have a name and a ton of books in the marketplace. Or you’re doing manga/super hero stuff. If you’re off the beaten path a bit – people look at you like street urchins. And these are street urchins looking at you like this.
Buck up little camper – tomorrow is 9 hours instead of 3….
