Sac-Con Panel, Webcomics, Hayward-Con & 24 Hour Comic Day!

Well, we did our first Q&A Panel at Sac-Con this weekend and I think it went well. We had a great attendance with a lot of fun and interested questions as to who we were, what we had planned, how we did it and how anyone else could do the same. Thank you to everyone who came by to support us!

We also gave out a pile of swag to all who attended. Everyone who came through got a copy of The Continuum #1, a coupon for Empire's Comics Vault, a limited print featuring the Women of ECV and a raffle ticket for an original piece of art (I hope you liked it), and an appearance in our book. Doug Briel of Sacramento will be appearing in an upcoming issue so that should be fun.

Now a number of other things to discuss as October is a packed month. First please check out our website for the newest webcomic from Relic & Ego. Part 2 will be posted tomorrow. We are hoping to get back on a regular schedule with the webcomics and can use help from you to get some done. See our website for all the details and shoot me an email with any unanswered questions.

Our next appearance will be at Hayward-Con on the 12th of October so if you are going to be there stop by and say hi. This will be our first Hayward-Con so we are excited.

Closer to home there is a very challenging and fun event taking place at Empire's Comics Vault on October 18-19th. 24 Hour Comic Day! This will be the 4th time we have run it and each time it gets better and better. We had 12 attendees last time and are shooting for 15 this go around. The objective is to sit down, throw out all your old ideas and come up with a new 24 page comic. You then draw and write 24 pages in 24 hours. Don't be put off if you are not an artist as I have absolutely no artistic abilities and I still finish mine each time. For more info on this event check out...

Again, thank you all who attended the Panel and heck anyone reading this now for the support. Have a great week and keep watching!

Just for good measure here is a pin-up of The Priestess from Hank Houston by Julio Cesar! A different pin-up on each of our blogs so check them all out!
