Self-publishing: Table at Comic Con
My brother Andy suggested we do a pre-set up.
T-shirts on racks; posters by Ian G.; posters in frames; and books with business cards in front.
Hidden is a price list, calculator, and cash box.
This was not only the first time with a table at Comic Con but my first time ever going to a Comic Con, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

This my stressed out look because I have no idea what’s going to happen now that we’re here.
I have to say the other vendors were very helpful and I learned a great deal from their displays.

This couple were our neighbors and very friendly and very busy for most of the day.
We didn’t make a lot of money but we had a great time meeting people and other vendors. What we did learn was, most people who go to Comic Con want to buy books or comics of pre-established companies, such as, Marvel and DC. They want to be able to dress up like the characters they read about. Finally, we should have dressed up like the characters.
A table for 2 is more expensive (it was $100 for Kitchener Comic Con this year) but I would recommend you get a table for 2. When it’s slow you have someone to talk to and you have someone to watch the table if you need to use the facilities or take a lunch break.
