    Being an Exhibitor at Comic Con 2012

    Comic Con was amazing. This was our fourth year as exhibitors there, and we had both a booth and panel. Before we were exhibitors we grew up going to comic conventions. We love Comic Con because we love to meet people from all over the world and from different walks of life. We also enjoy hearing about all the new movies, books and video games that are going to be coming out this year. Our fans are at Comic Con and it is wonderful to be able to connect with them and to make new friends.
    Working a convention is grueling there is set-up, tear-down, and the long hours, especially at Comic Con where you see all the amazing booths and panels but you are working a booth of your own. It is hard to get time to walk around. Working Comic Con is a physically intense experience. Every part of your body hurts; and it’s hard to get time to eat. We talk to so many people that we often lose our voices by the end of the show. But in the end it is all worth it.
    It is also exciting and glamorous. Some of the people we were able to meet were Lou Ferrigno, Christopher Paolini, Sean Astin, and Doug Jones. We are able to connect with our friends in the neighboring booths like Anime Hot, Mile High Comics, Doug TenNapel and so many others. We have worked conventions with them for years and we love them all.
    We had our panel on Sunday and we talked about How to Create your own novel from the first idea to publishing. We were so excited when we walked in and to our amazement the entire room was filled. All in all, Comic Con was thrilling, exciting, and amazing as always. We are looking forward to next year.
