Wondercon Wrap-upon March 21, 2012 at 4:20 pm
Well I survived my first con in the USA! Man was it insane, I have to admit it was a big difference for me coming from Australia to LA. I heard there was around 70,000 people over the 3 days which is just insane to me.
Overall it was an amazing weekend as I got to meet a lot of new people and professionals already in the industry who inspire me. I got to meet Scott Snyder who is really a nice guy who loves his fans. I had the chance to see his panel and I thought it was great, I took away a lot of things from it such as his whole writing process. Another person I met was Kyle Higgins whose Nightwing run at the moment is kicking ass!
My goal was to get a few more fans for Vengador and hopefully I achieved that. Walking up and down the whole convention center handing out Vengador fliers and introducing myself to many people was great. I was surprised with the amount of people who were asking about the character and the story. I learn’t a lot from this trip and will definitely do it again next year I feel. I have a few things to work on in terms of my writing but hey I am young and I know there are a lot of things to work on but this weekend has showed me those key areas which people are looking for in a young writer.
The next thing on my agenda is to do a few reviews for some comics that I bought over the weekend and to work with other web and comic guys on a few projects and see if anything comes out it. But first I will be reviewing Scott Snyder and Scott Tuft’s book from Image “Severed” which I hope to have up at the end of next week if time persists.
I leave to go back to Sydney next week before returning to the real world of work lol As a final note I just want people to know I had a blast.

For the new fans from the weekend thank you for taking the time to read my comic and I hope to see you all again and have a chat.
Until next time – Don’t forget to fight for what is right!
