We Can’t Go To Otakon
I wish that weren’t true, but it’s out of our hands. We can’t do that and get the store ready and do Necrowombicon and get all of Gabe’s shit moved, we aren’t enough people to do all of this stuff at the same time and we can’t pay for all of it. I’m sorry to be typing this, because until we got back from San Diego I thought the whole thing was essentially in the bag. I told a lot of people there about it and now I am a huge liar.
I’m sorry. We are bad.
At the same time, I don’t know that big conventions are necessary for what we want to do, and I’m not certain that people need to be paying as much as sixty bucks (!) in some cases to come see us. Our plan, and I think it is a good plan, is to hold a sort of miniature convention in a greater number of cities than we would get to just going to major cons. We need to get to Chicago. We need to get to Baltimore. Philadelphia. Down Florida way. We also need to get to the Dirty Southside, where Ludacris makes his home. I don’t see any reason to make you pay money to come see us, and I don’t see any reason to wait until some very fancy men rent a colloseum or something and fill it with people. I think that a hotel conference room would probably do the trick, and if you’re a cartoonist from the area, by all means - bring your work and introduce yourselves to people. This just seems like a much better idea, and it is a good deal cheaper for both of us. We’ll talk more about it soon, but be thinking about towns you’d like us to go to. I do not doubt that a poll is in the very near future.
Necrowombicon, though - don’t forget the Necrowombicon, which we are still going to. It’s this weekend, the 25th through the 27th, and it looks to be shaping up quite nicely, what with the rock bands, LAN gaming, board gaming, etc.
