Despite coming home with money in my pocket, I *made* no money at the Calgary Expo this year. I did, however, get to hang around in the world of comics for four great days, sell books to old friends who came by to support, new friends who came back and bought more and everyone in between. There were people who'd never heard of the story, excited to read it and people who've read the story, excited to read more.
Calgary has the most fantastic, tight knit comics community, with a
roster that's both incredibly impressive and amazingly welcoming. I made
no money, sure, but I felt like a pro at the Expo and sat at the "grown
up's" table at the bar afterwards, plus Mike Costa said he really liked
Wolf Hands and bought me a beer, nothing wrong with that.
