Oh dear, I completely forgot to write a short summary about the Vienna Comix. I shall remedy that immediately.
So, Vienna Comix. What a cool little convention. Spike and I were able to get a table in the artist's room and let me tell you, it really paid off. Not only did we have a blast joking around with all manner of cool people (especially Dogeatello, you gals rock!), we also sold a few books, so it sorta, kinda, probably, maybe paid off financially as well. Which is a nice bonus, but really not what we came for in the first place - our focus was to meet a few readers and to gain a few new ones, and boy, did that work wonderously. My best moment by far was that one group of youths who asked me if I'm cool with them cosplaying one of my characters, Plot Twist Man. Yes, I'm completely serious. Needless to say that I was completely floored. So if you guys are reading this, you officially made my day.
Since this was our very first con, I can't really say whether this is normal or not, but con visitors are about the nicest folks you could imagine. Rarely have I ever seen so many smiles around, so much genuine niceness in one place, and never have I ever felt so much at home amidst so many strangers so quickly. No matter your fandom, everyone I met and talked to got along with each other, I haven't seen a single instance of somebody pissing someone else off or anything else along those nasty lines. So basically, it was the polar opposite of what you see on the internet on a regular basis.
I loved it.
Tami did too, judging by all the My Little Pony merch she carried back home.
Suffice to say that we're SO going to apply for a table at the next con in October. We're already impatiently looking forward to the next Vienna Comix and to seeing all you awesome people again.
In other news, you can now also find our comic Piece of Me on Tapastic. In case you're not familiar with that website, it's basically the Netflix of Webcomics: You've got tons (and I mean TONS) of awesome comics - like ours, ha ha - in one place, completely free of charge. In addition, you're supporting creators with ad revenue (I know you guys hate ads, but if you could turn off AdBlock over there, that'd be really swell. No pressure though <3 ) or you can support them directly, Patreon style. I should point out that you'll still get our comics on our own website sooner since it's still our primary outlet. Just sayin'.
So if you're already using Tapastic or if you're just curious what it's all about, pay us a visit there. You won't regret it. I hope.
Hello there Internet! As you can see, I'm doing things a little differently today, namely with a guest strip by George Ward (you can find his webcomic here: moam.webcomic.ws). How did I get the honours? Why, April Fool's, of course! To be more specific, I'm taking part in the Webcomic Underdogs April Fools' Switcheroo, which involves exchanging guest comics between participating artists. I also feel like I should recommend Webcomic Underdog's community to anyone who creates comics of their own, it's a truly lovely bunch. If you wanna check out their site you can do so here: webcomicunderdogs.com
In other news, we, as in Tami, Spike, his girlfriend and me, are going to be at the Vienna Comix comic convention from 18th to 19th April! Yes, that's right, if you happen to be in Vienna that time of the year, you can seize the opportunity to come by and say Hi to at least three of your favourite Piece of Me characters themselves! But not only that, we're also going to have tons of super swanky swag for you to pick up and take home: BOOKS! (among other things) Indeed, the very first Piece of Me book "Erste Wahl" (only in German for the time being, sorry!) will be available for purchase at our booth, Spike is going to sell his very first Void Comics comic books as well! If that's not reason enough to swing by, I don't know what to do with you, honestly.
So save the date (18th - 19th of April 2015) and come visit us! You won't regret it.
