has anyone been along to this one before?? if so, what did you think? it sounds interesting the fact that there's no dealer tables and that all the comics are sold from one main table...

was meant to go last year but i wasnt back from new york in time.....have mixed feelings about not having exhibators tables, as an artist I enjoy working a table as you get to talk to people about your work, also as a comic fan what i like about small press shows is that the person sitting behind the table is usally the artist so you can talk to them about their work rather then dealer tables were the people running them are retailers.

every show is different and its always fun to hit a new one cus you never know how your work will go down or what will sell, the book/print you sold out of at the least show might not sell at all and the one no one liked last time is the big seller......I'm looking forward to seeing what caption is like

i'm definitely curious to check it out. what sounds appealing to a newbie like me is the fact that you don't have to hire a table, but that you still have a chance to sell comics. i can certainly appreciate that that might be a nightmare for more established artists though. but for someone such as myself who's only starting off it seems like a cheaper alternative to the cons where you have to rent a table.

Con season can be very pricey [just paid $325 for my MoCCA 08 table] but only the really big cons sell expensive tables - MoCCA, SPX and SDCC are the most expensive. Tables for alot of small press events aren't to bad - APE is the west coast alternative to MoCCA and their tables are only $150 odd which for a two con is damn good. SPACE and Stumptown are under the $100 mark plus any half decent con sells half tables as well, American con tables tend to be bigger then UK based events and a full table can be alot to fill if your only starting. [Of course you have to add travel, hotels and printing costs as well]

The uk web and mini comic thing is a good con in london, full tables last here were under £50, but save money by sharing a table, thats what I did for my frist few years at MoCCA, this year was the first year I had enough of my own work that i could fill a whole table by myself. I'm always up for sharing a table at con if someone is really interested in attending, or I'll take peoples stuff for them if they can't make a con[within reason of course]. I've had friends take my stuff to a number of cons round Europe and the states for me cus I took their stuff to cons they couldn't attend.

Of course if you goal is to make money you shouldn't be hitting comic cons but anime conventions - artists alley tables tend to be much cheaper and if your good at quick sketches you can make a decent profit doing comissions.
