Windy City Comicon Report

Monday, November 3rd, 2008 by Dave Wachter

Last, last weekend, (yes way back then) I exhibited at the first annual Windy City Comicon. Organized by my buddies from the Around Comics podcast: Brion Salazar and Chris Neseman, the goal was to bring a comic convention back within the city boarders and have it focus on, get this, COMICS! It was a bit of an ordeal for me to attend the show. I had just moved away from Chicago just the weekend before, to my new place in Cincinnati. Once everything was in the new apartment(I’ve got too much stuff. A 17ft truck worth and then some!) I unpacked the computer and drawing table first so I could knock out the sketch pre-orders.


Guns nominated for Best of 2008!

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009 by Dave Wachter

The Guns of Shadow Valley convention preview edition was nominated for the Comic Geek Speak Best of 2008, in the category of ‘Best Single Issue!’ This is a tremendous and completely unexpected honor. The hosts of the popular CGS podcast each nominated a title in 25 categories with one more title listed for the top listeners’ choice. CGS founder Bryan Deemer nominated our little book saying, in part: “I’m telling you, that thing is awesome. I put it down and immediately wanted to read more…” Many thanks to Bryan and the rest of the CGS crew for this wonderful recognition!

If your a CGS listener, check out the full nomination list and send in your vote!

Listen to the first nominations episode where we get the nod.


Emerald City Comicon

I’ll be at the Emerald City Comicon in Seattle April 4-5. I’ll be selling copies of the The Guns of Shadow Valley preview edition, Tell Them Johnny Wadd is Here, the Scar Tissue trade paperback, art prints, and more. I’ll also be accepting a limited number of sketch commission requests to be completed at the show. If you’re attending the convention, be sure to stop by table K-9 in Artist Alley!
