Nine down … plenty to go!

The Convention Season is almost halfway over and we’ve already had an incredibly full year!!! We kicked off 2017 by Kickstarting our new comic book collaboration, Eisegesis: Kings + Queens! While in the thick of our crowdfunding campaign, we also hit  a trio of great shows – local favorite NWI Comic Con, our gaming convention debut with Lodge Con, and a return to the student-led Colum Con in downtown Chicago!

From there, we started prepping for a huge comic con double feature in April, exhibiting in C2E2’s Artist Alley while headlining as featured guests at the Chi Teen Lit Fest! It was an amazing, wonderful, and exhausting weekend, giving us a chance to not only debut advanced copies of Eisegesis at C2E2, but to meet a new generation of comics creators at the Lit Fest! At CTLF, Brad hosted “In the Gutters,” a workshop on how comics work, how sequential art and the written word play together on the page, and how mastering the gutters between each panel will help young creators in their comics writing. During the workshop, Brad offered some hands-on experience in by having the teens complete the following comic:

From our jam-packed Chicago weekend, we boarded a plane and crossed the border to Canada to return once again to the Toronto Comics Arts Festival! We spent the weekend selling comics, scarfing down poutine, meeting fans, and getting to know some incredible indie creators. TCAF is always an amazing show, and this year was no exception!

Whether we’re exhibiting books a huge convention center or supporting our local libraries, it’s always a pleasure meeting our fans and sharing our work. It’s been an incredible year so far … and we’re just gettin’ started.
