Boston Comic Con 2014 – Thank You

Boston Comic Con 2014 tableThis year’s Boston Comic Con was a fantastic event. In fact, it was by far the most successful show I’ve had in five years of exhibiting at comic conventions. Of course, as cliché as it is to say, the truth is it wouldn’t have been such a success without the support of those who stopped by my table, even if it was just to look and say a few kind words about my work.

That said, I want to thank everyone who bought prints, commissions, bookmarks, and especially those who picked up the second edition of Chadhiyana. I hope you enjoy it, and continue reading the graphic novel, Chadhiyana: In the Company of Shadows on chadhiyana.com. If you weren’t at the show, you still have the opportunity to pick up a copy at the Baltimore and New York Comic Cons in the coming months. The comic is also available on IndyPlanet.com (print and digital) and the Inbeon Studios store (digital only).

So keep your eyes peeled. I’d like to have a new Chadhiyana comic out sometime soon.

Also, a special thank you for all of you who turned out for the Self-Publishing in Indie Comics panel on Friday night. Based on the positive feedback I got from those who came to my table afterward, I feel it was a successful panel. I’m glad E. J. Barnes, Keith J. Murpey and I were able to offer a good amount of information for those getting started or toying with the idea of self-publishing, and that we were able to answer so many questions. I’m just a little disappointed that it was cut a little short due to it being at the end of the night for the show on Friday, but, it’s a small complaint. I love doing shows and panels, and I’m hoping to be invited to speak on other panels at future shows.

Other than that, it was great to stay a few days in Boston (in fact, I stayed over into the beginning of the week, just to do some sightseeing and to enjoy more of the city). Though it’s almost blasphemous for one living close to New York to say, Boston is honestly my favourite city I’ve visited in the United States. That’s not just talk; it’s true. I love the beautiful, old architecture, I love the history which you can find (literally) around every corner, and I love the overall feeling one gets from the city.

With such a wonderful location and it being the best show I’ve done to date, you can be sure I’ll be back next year. See you in 2015, Boston! Thanks again.

Cheers!
