Trisha’s Take: How to get the most out of one day at a convention, part 2

Picking up where I left off, I didn’t stay very long in the southern end of the Javitz Center because the one panel I’d RSVP’d for was in the northern end of the hall with the majority of the large publishers, game companies, and stores. When I registered as a member of the Press, I […]

Comic Non-Sans: Convention Time Again

For myself and many other artists, November holds quite a few conventions.  Some lucky sods got to go to Rising Star this month, which I hope was everything they dreamed it’d be.  Myself, I’m preparing to hold down a table in one Artist Alley this year, and sucking it up that I missed the deadline […]

Trisha’s Take: How to get the most out of one day at a convention, part 1

Approximately 10 years ago, I used to go to a lot of conventions, like the San Diego Comic Con (aka “Nerd Prom”) and Anime Expo. In fact, in 2001, I think I went to six different conventions on two different U.S. coasts. My most traveled year was 2003 when I was working for the now-defunct […]

Comic Non-Sans: Intervention

The sort you wouldn’t mind your friends staging for you. The first usage of the term “webcomic” predates Google by three years, Wikipedia by six years, and YouTube by ten.  Over the last fifteen years, it’s gone from novelty to Internet subculture, launching small businesses, charities, and TV series.  A webcomic even made Time magazine’s […]

Anime Mid-Atlantic 2010 in(verted) review

“Look over there, there’s a bunch of those weird cartoon people across the street.” I’d be lying if I said I could deliver a perfectly objective review of Anime Mid-Atlantic from a managerial standpoint.  For the last several years, AMA has been one of my “working cons” — I run karaoke and occasionally end up […]

Trisha’s Quote of the Day: Why some women shouldn’t fly spaceships

Wheaton: This is the first time I’ve ever been on the stage with a fellow Starship driver. I have never shared the stage with someone who has also driven a Starship. Burton: And how does it feel? Wheaton: It feels pretty good. It feels like we could talk in a shorthand that no one would […]
