Comic Con: Sunday

I love Comic Con but I wasn't too sad to see Sunday come. My feet hurt, my back hurts, and we were out of most of our merchandise. But we stuck it out and got respectable sales. Taken as a whole, and by almost any metric, this is our most successful Comic Con ever. We sold close to everything we brought. We made a modest, but solid, profit even given the expensive booth and hotel. We acquired several hundred new readers. I moderated a standing-room-only series of panels. Most importantly, I think, was the increasing sense Gene and I got that our strip is accessible and entertaining to a broad spectrum of readers, not just librarians. We get this a little more each Comic Con, but much more so this year. We're never sure when Comic Con starts if we'll come back the next year, but we always do, and indeed we did sign up for what will hopefully be the same booth in 2007. We look forward to seeing you all then!
