Tercona comic #7 is coming soon!

After school, on a cool crisp fall day, Tercona is needed to save people from a house fire that just happens to be the home of Britney’s uncle. She must act fast to save everyone trapped inside because the structure is falling apart. Tercona finds Britney’s 10-year-old cousin Teodora and brings her to safety but when she returns to the burning building to save Teodora’s father, the unthinkable happens. The house explodes! Tercona learns that even superheroes can’t save everyone.

There are still a few minor changes to be made to this comic (making sure everything is spelled right for one. lol) Along with some minor color changes and a few more things too but…I wanted to let you guys know that Tercona comic #7 – You Can’t Save Everyone will be ready by 2023!

My last comic con in 2022 was The Cincinnati Comic Expo this past weekend!

I went to this comic con in 2021 and it was fantastic. I couldn’t wait to go back and it did NOT disappoint!

The crowd was so busy on Saturday that I hardly got a chance to talk to anyone because they just kept walking by. It was kind of like the “herd” mentality.

Even though I did sell a lot of comics I didn’t make a profit because my hotel cost was high. I assume the more books I have on my table the more people will have to choose from and the better chances I’ll have at making MORE money by selling more books.

Nonetheless, this is one my my favorite comic cons of the year because I always do well. I can’t wait to go back next year to The Cincinnati Comic Expo.

2022 Monroe Pop Fest – Review

This past weekend I went to The Monroe Pop Fest in Monroe, MI. I hadn’t been to this con since 2019!

I’ve been going to The Monroe Pop Fest since 2016. Back then it was called The Monore Comic Con. In those years this con has always brought in lots of people. Lots of foot traffic.

On another note, since 2017 I’ve always wanted to go to the Cincinnati Comic Expo. The bad thing was, every year both of these cons were on the same weekend.

In 2020 I bought an Artist Alley table for The Moroe Pop Fest AND the Cincinnati Comic Expo because this was the first year they were not on the same weekend. Sadly, we all know how 2020 went.

In 2021, both cons were on the same weekend…again. So I decided to go to the Cincinnati Comic Expo this time. My AA table for the 2022 Monroe Pop Fest was my rollover from 2020.

Now that you know a little backstory, here’s what I think is the 2022 Monroe Pop Fest. It was…OK. First off, they added a “preview” day on Friday from 5-9. I didn’t want to go on Friday because this con is about a 1 hour and 45-minute drive from my house and this meant I would have to drive up there….twice! But I went. I thought the Friday hours were unnecessary. Every 3-day con that I’ve been to has there Friday hours usually from 3-9 or 2-8. In any case, Friday is usually 6 hours. For Monroe, it was only 4.

I also believe the attendance was down a little too. There was still lots of foot traffic and people were happy to be there but It just seemed a little slower than in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Finally, I only sold 1 comic too.

I want to make this very clear. Gary puts on a great show. I still love The Monroe Pop Fest and I will return to this show again in the future it’s just that I think I’ll skip next year and try again in 2024.

Again, it’s a great show. I like it but I felt the attendance was down from previous years. It’s also possible that the people that were there just weren’t buying. lol
