Con Report: MGA Con 2017

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on March 1, 2017 by dwbarbee

Yet another convention is in the books. This time it was MGACon, and my third time tabling there. As usual, I had a great time and sold enough books. I even bought some prints and a t-shirt for my kid. That’s how well it worked out. So all that’s left is to give you the broad strokes:

My table was positioned in the Artist Alley, across from a character designer for one of my favorite shows, Archer. Next to me was a guy who could draw the shit out of Scooby Doo and across the aisle was a quiet guy who drew Sonic the Hedgehog.

Lots of Stormtroopers, as usual. This guy had a backpack full of brains. I understand that it’s mean to be his exposed spinal column, but I like the idea of a backpack full of brains. There were also a lot of Harley Quinns, but one woman was REALLY accurate. I declined to take her picture because she was too beautiful. You’ll have to take my word for it. Unrelated to her, there was a guy dressed as Heath Ledger Joker (always a few of those, too) and he looked bored as hell and kind of sad. Totally not having fun even though he’s dressed up as such a charismatic character. It was weird, but also strangely funny. I didn’t get his picture, either.

And that was the con, folks. Pretty run-of-the-mill. These days I’ve gotten used to doing cons, and I’m planning to do more. Hearing all the comic and cartoon artists talk about all the cons they go to made me hungry for more. This was only my second con of 2017 and I have THREE more in the works, not including BizarroCon in November. I’ll probably need more of these snazzy business cards.

Signing Books at MGACON this weekend

Well, it happened. My town finally has its own comic convention, which is beyond awesome. This weekend (March 15th and 16th) marks the inaugural Middle Georgia Comic Con, located at the Macon Centerplex. There will be a ton of awesome stuff going on, including all these cool people…

…and me also. No, I’m not on the poster, but I will be there in real life, sitting at a table in Artist Alley selling and signing copies of my books Thunderpussy and A Town Called Suckhole. This whole week I’m making big plans for the event, so if you’re out and about for the Cherry Blossom Festival this weekend (for those who don’t know, the Cherry Blossom Festival is Macon’s honored and beloved pastime of painting the entire city pink), come join the party. You can get more info on MGACON right here at their site.
