Comments

  1. This is Mike Kitchen reporting LIVE from Columbus, Ohio. We’re just about to make our way downstairs to set up the Ultraist Studios / Possum Press table for day 2 of SPACE. It’s interesting to note that we sold more SPY GUY and The POSSUM comics during day 1 of SPACE than we did during day 1 of MoCCA. Much like MoCCA, we’re filming a video-blog mini-documentary. Once it is completed (hopefully by next weekend) we’ll provide a link to The BEAT.

    This is Mike Kitchen, signing off.

  2. Had a great time at SPACE this weekend and wish I had gotten there sooner on Saturday. My first con-event ever. Floor traffic seemed a little slow but it was fantastic to meet other cartoonists and check out each other’s work. I sold out of one of my minicomics, “Brown Paper”, too, so I’ve got something extra to be happy about.
