Grit City Comic Show

Last Saturday, Jake Richmond and I attended the Grit City Comic Show. I purchased a table in 2020. The show shut down in 2020 because of the pandemic. The showrunners postpone all tables until 2021. In 2021, my son was born. Grit City was kind enough to allow me to table in 2022.

I was apprehensive. No one appreciates a Totally Naked hero. Go figure. Conventions are usually an enormous waste of money for me. And the vibe from the fans is always… deflating. However, this was not the case at Grit City. The people there wanted to read indie comics. It did help that the entrance fee was cheap and there were no major celebrities there. Why spend money on comics when you can pay 500 bucks for a picture of the cast of Firefly?

I had a lot of fun at Grit City. I want to try to go next year. It was fantastic. This event inspired me to get back to the drawing desk.
