Young Mr. Patrick Mulhearn was kind enough to edit together some of the silly we video’d at MidSouthCon a couple of weeks ago. He’s a talented guy, and if I didn’t say so, he’d hit me with a padded stick.

I have been giving considerable thought to bringing Hubris to various conventions around this country and Canada (Hey, Allan!) and so I’ve dipped my toe in, locally. Didn’t gamble much in the way of merchandise or table time, but it was fun, and I think there are a few new readers since then (Hey, guys!)
Here’s me at MidSouthCon-
I had some books to sell, a skateboard to sell, and lots of stickers to give out, along with some original pencil sheets for anyone who acted truly interested. I’d also like to point out that the outlandish buckskin jacket I was wearing was complimented more and more thoroughly at the convention than it has been for ten years prior.
There weren’t a lot of sales made, and it was tricky to keep the attention of the Convention-goers. Comic strips aren’t always the biggest hit at Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Comic book events. Comic Strips are for a different kind of reader. Some of you might take that as a compliment or as an insult when I point out that the convention-goers I was speaking to looked like this:
And like this:
Last year, I worked the SouthEast Chapter of the National Cartoonist Society’s table at HerosCon in Charlotte NC. That was fun, but what I really wanted was to scope things out and see if I might not put the effort into turning Hubris into more of a full-time occupation.
Setting up a Hubris table at OutdoorFests and Comics Cons would be great. I still don’t know if I can do it, what with other projects that constantly crop up- it’s hard to plan ahead.
Like this weekend. I bought table space at MIDSOUTHCON. I figured it’s here in town and it’ll be fun and easy to dip a toe in the water. Alas, I picked up a freelance job with nightmarish deadlines.
So, I’m at MidSouthCon for the panels and demonstrations that they asked me to sit in on, and that’s great. And I’ll man my table for a few hours today.
So come on by, if you’re in the West Tennessee area, willya? It’s lots of fun, and the dealer room is intriguing as always (Goggles, anyone? Swords?) And there’s ALWAYS the costumes. Come see those. I’ll try to take some photos for you today.
