Happy Monday Everyone!
Well, just in case you live in a cave, SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2013 badges went on sale Saturday and SOLD OUT IN LESS THAN 2 HOURS...AGAIN!! Kudos if you were able to get a pass.
I for one was subject to the "digital waiting room" and was denied...again for the second straight year. If you thought that comic retailers and/or professionals would have their own registration...
you are WRONG. We don't get preferential treatment.
Until a few years ago, Diamond Distributors used to handle this for us, but Comic-Con got TOO BIG and now we wait in line (digitally) with everyone else.
Maybe I'll get lucky & smart like last year and split a booth or something...I'll keep you posted.
Anyways, I have other things to worry about on a daily basis like running a cool comic shop, planning amazing events and making sure that our Family's shop is the "GOLD" standard for the Industry.
Speaking of events, YOU ARE INVITED TO A PARTY!
On Wednesday, March 6th we are hosting an IMAGE COMICS CREATOR (WINE) MIXER at 7pm. Meet & mingle with some of today's newest comic creators of the coolest new Image Comics like: Great Pacific, I Love Trouble & Blackacre. Since we are in LA, we will invite tons more people and I'm sure we'll see some others. Keep checking Twitter (@GAppleComics) and Facebook for guest updates. Wine will be served...Yay!
Until next week, stay classy Los Angeles & we can't wait to see ya on Wednesday!
