recap of Wizard World Philadelphia

well, we’re back from wizard world philadelphia only to get ready to leave again in 2 days for heroes con. no rest for the wicked! we on award tour!

Wizard World Philadelphia was fantastic for us! the space was much larger than before. some say it was a bit too large but for us behind the tables, the extra breathing room was definitely welcomed. we had lots of people come by our tables to hang out, buy prints and get commissions from us. these shows really remind us of why we do what we do. cuz we certainly wouldn’t be away from our families this often if we didn’t love doing it for the people that appreciate our art. the ID Comics Studio panel went great. folks really had some great questions and hopefully we’ve managed to inspire at least 1 person. =) on Sunday theFranchize and Flash battled at the SCRIBBLE! DOODLE! DRAW! panel. theFranchize attempted to get the title belt from Flash who currently held it from Awesome Con a couple months back but he lost his lead in the end. great talent all around the con floor. got to hang out with our buddy and super cool artist Kevin Bolk (and his crew). we even got to meet a couple of celebrities. all in all it was a successful weekend despite the fact that we missed Thursday. we tried very hard to get there though! on the road up to Philadelphia on Thursday, our car broke down. long story short, we had to get a rental car and make our way back up to the show but it was just too late.

here are pictures from our fun weekend at Wizard World!

fun times for the crew and cosplayers too! (at wizard world philly)

MCCC recap

we’ve made it back from our first trip to Detroit, MI for the Motor City Comic Con. we had a great time meeting brand new people and hanging out with the Drunk On Comics guys (who are the folks to thank for having us out there this year)! we did a couple of interviews, one of which you can view here – http://youtu.be/D_jBB-4AJPg (our part starts at 5:22 of the video). thanks Danger Ink Media for coming by and chatting with us! we saw quite a few cosplayers that came to the table. and we were even lucky enough to be a part of someone’s surprise marriage proposal that unfolded right in front of our table – thanks to one of theFranchize’s fans. he asked theFranchize to draw him proposing to his lady before the show. then as they flipped thru his portfolio, she was properly confused. then he got on one knee and proposed. such an awesome and emotional moment that we were able to play a tiny part of. congrats to the happy couple!

C2E2 and FCBD recap

is that enough acronyms for ya? 😉 we’re finally recovering from a very long trip to Chicago for C2E2 followed by an amazing Free Comic Book Day event at Third Eye Comics in Annapolis, MD. both events were great and we had a blast!

C2E2 was a much better con for us this year. TheFranchize and Flash got to be up on the center stage drawing for the people. we got to contribute pieces to the art auction that apparently raised over $10K collectively for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Peng-Peng got to sit at the Girls Drawin Girls table surrounded by an amazing collection of art by lovely ladies all around the world. and it was one of only a handful of times we were at a con with our 4th member, Domo. always great to have the whole team together. the fan responses were great and we had a great time drawing for people. here are some pics from our time there.

Free Comic Book Day at Third Eye Comics in Annapolis, MD was an incredible experience. we’ve never seen so many people lined up to get into a comic shop. they have some of the best and loyal patrons, that’s for certain. probably due to the awesomeness of the folks that run the shop. we were set up in a tent and signed lots of Fanboys Vs Zombies graphic novels and NFL Rush Zone comics. we even signed a few copies of Supurbia #1 with theFranchize and Peng-Peng’s exclusive cover for it. we were in there with the likes of Gail Simone, Joelle Jones, Cullen Bunn, and Billy Martin. we got to meet 2 out of the 3 ladies of comicosity.com’s The Hangout who apparently are huge fans of FVZ!

free comic book day tomorrow

since we’re taking a little longer to gather our pictures from C2E2 last weekend, i’ll take this opportunity to let you know that we will be at Third Eye Comics in Annapolis, MD for their Free Comic Book Day / 5-year Anniversary par-tay! they have some amazing guests including Gail Simone and Cullen Bunn and ID COMICS STUDIOS (of course). theFranchize, Peng-Peng, and Flash will be there representin the studio. we hear there’s gonna be a Doctor Who photo booth and TARDIS as well as free food from Applebees!

as if that weren’t enough reasons to spend ur FCBD with us, theFranchize’s Awesome Con exclusive cover for Regular Show #1 has arrived just in time! (drawn by Jerry Gaylord | colored by Lauren Affe) this cover is particularly awesome because on the back is a space for you to get a sketch from him! now if that isn’t collectible, i don’t know what is.
