Greetings, We at Wayward Raven Media had a brilliant time at the ComiCONN in Trumbull, CT on August 24th. The staff and volunteers were superb. The accommodations simply put many other similar sized cons to shame. The crowd was larger than expected but replete with enthusiasm and curiosity, which added to our experience exponentially. It didn't hurt that we were local either.
The cosplay was quite good but I am sorry that we didn't capture all of the magnificent specimens in digital form but we had to work selling our comic books The Ascendant #1-2 and Horsemen #1 along with prints from Damn Heroes as well as our prose Ominous Odes and The Cell. As for sales, it was splendid. Really quite a good day and the people who bought our titles were thoughtful and excited to get new material into their hands. I am sure that was positively influenced by the setting where very successful people in the comic book industry like Ron Marz, Mark Bagley, JM DeMatteis, and Jim Salicrup mingled with us just starting outs. Hey even Larry Kenney, Lion-O from the 1985 Thundercats, was there and he was actually just a couple tables over from us.
Basically, it rocked and we will exhibit again if they will have us next year. Now, for what you really want besides my gushing praise, photos.

This dude was awesome. He even had a sonic screwdriver from Doctor Who and a Star Trek communicator just to put the strict adherence folks into a hyper-drive feedback loop.
It was a good Thing.
Ms. Rabbit and Ms. Ivy.
He really wasn't motivated.
But R2 was.
Me getting maced.
The Wayward Raven table before the onslaught. Yes, that's me hiding behind the large piece of original artwork on the corner.
Cluck loves you.
Bane and Batman exchange business cards. Robin looks on.
Young and old alike.
It was a fun con and if you get the chance to go next year, do.
Ars longa, vitae brevis.
