October 29th went in the books as the first day I sold books at an actual comic book store. A few months ago, the folks at The One Stop Shop started carrying Nighthawks. Well, after some discussion I got asked if I’d be interested in attending Comicfest, the October version of “Free Comic Book Day.” I said sure, why not?
I spent the day talking comics and video games with the locals. I imagined I was Kevin Smith on the set of Comicbook Men. Once the Batman onesie appeared, things just got weird. My cheeks still hurt from laughing so hard. The site of a bearded Batman running down the street screaming, “In the name of Justice!” was enough to stop traffic and nearly cause an accident.
Nope. No dull days in the life of a writer!
