Comicpalooza! This banner event is finally upon us. Are you ready? Am I ready? The agreement for our artist alley table finally arrived last week, and the first fact that leapt from the text is that is going to be an endurance test for vendors. According to the agreement, artist tables must be set up, staffed and ready for business from (1) 11:30 a.m. Friday until 2:00 a.m. Saturday, (2) from 9:30 a.m. Saturday until 2:00 a.m. Sunday, and (3) from 9:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Sunday. With windows of opportunity this large, there is no excuse for you slackers in Kansas or Alabama not to drive in for a few hours of shopping the artist tables and dealer room. Just think of the talent and personalities coming together for the event, get yourself into the gas hog and on the road. Ms. Kimmerly and I shall be working shifts at our table, #48. We’ll have books, dice and all manner of things Stikmantic, PLUS news about the coming release of our Dvarsh primer/glossary AND plans for the first collection of Amanda’s fiction. It would be wonderful to see you there.
