One of the things I really like about Emerald City is how receptive the crowd their seems to be to new comics. Compared to a lot of the other shows I go to, the number of existing Sam and Fuzzy readers who swing by the booth is relatively low. (I got very good at quickly explaining who "that first character" is on the My Skills are Varied t-shirt!) But what ECCC does have is a lot of people who are honestly interested in comics, and who are actively looking for new ones to read.

More than at any other con, people will stop for a good couple of minutes, read a few pages of my books, flip through my entire display portfolio, and ask for the site URL on it so they can check it out later. Several of the existing Sam and Fuzzy readers I met this year were people who had only discovered the comic by attending last year's show.

I love science fiction movies and videogames as much as the next guy. But still, it's a real pleasure to attend an event where the focus is comics, and where the audience is so eager to learn about new work. Between ECCC and the Webcomics Weekend, I am feeling pretty spoiled!

As always, Emerald City Comicon was a blast. Thanks to everyone who came by the booth and experienced the magic.

And you know what? Thanks to everyone who couldn't make it to the show. It's not your fault! You don't live anywhere near Seattle. Or you were busy! Or lazy. It's ok. I understand. I won't judge you.

This Weekend: Emerald City Comicon, Seattle!

No Q and A this week, I'm afraid... I was too busy getting ready for this weekend's Emerald City Comicon! Shannon and I are driving down to Seattle today, but the show itself doesn't begin until first thing Saturday morning.

I will be at booth #204, which is listed in the program as the "Questionable Content/Topatoco" booth. It's right next to most of the other webcomic booths, so you can't miss me. If you make it to the show, be sure to come by and say hello!
