Fans of the Scooter and Ferret Facebook page (and probably anybody else who wants to see) can enjoy a nice big set of Megacon 2010 pictures freshly posted. It seems like a lot of people go to cons these days in costume. There was not only more cosplay on display than I’ve ever seen before, but there were a ton of booths catering to cosplayers, selling full costumes, accessories and even wigs. The trouble is, cosplayers go to cons to be seen and have their picture taken, they don’t go to buy comics. So although attendance might be high, purchasing in this economy is minimal. And it’s tough to get around to with all of those cosplayers getting their picture taken. I’m sure I got caught in the background of a host of shots.
I wanted to upload all of my Megacon photos tonight but I couldn’t find the camera. What I did get to do is add in all of the new people who signed up for the strip over the weekend, so welcome to Scooter and Ferret! This is an excellent point to come in at as it’s the start of a new storyline. Don’t forget that the archives are all online so if you want to get to know the characters from the start, you can begin from the beginning. Or for the less patient types, the character page gives a good summary. I recently noticed that there are a few people getting to the website who must have heard somewhere that I’ve released a cartoon where Ferret and Scooter argue over drinking from the toilet, because they go to the search bar and search for variations on “Scooter” and “toilet. This is why analytics are important kids. I didn’t have a descriptor on the website that would bring someone to the Cartoons page via that kind of search, so once I saw people were lost, I added for them. I hope you enjoy and stick with us!
I survived Megacon, somehow, some way. Sold some books and other merchandise, but more importantly, we got to meet some local artists. Most are in Tampa, but a couple were out of Orlando. We went out to dinner with some new faces, Krishna from PC Weenies and JT from Nightgig Studios. JT didn’t waste time posting pictures of the event, so that’s one place to see the festivities. I’ll be uploading my pictures to the Scooter and Ferret Facebook Fan Page, so be on the lookout for those. Did I mention the attendance on Saturday was absolutely insane? You couldn’t take a step without knocking over someone dressed like a Pokemon. One thing that always happens at every convention is a lot of new names join the mailing list, though I don’t have time tonight to add them all. Just as well, as today wraps up the pole workout storyline.
