Relaxed, Refreshed, Refueled

Whew! Well we are back from the never-ending clown car that is the San Diego Comicon. Rest assured, ever-patient readers, that we will be resuming our story this Friday.

San Diego was noticeably different, this year. There seemed to be less people in the aisles. Apparently, in order to get fresh faces, the Comcon has been restricting the sales of the old 4-Day Passes, and we saw a lot more single day passes. As a result, we saw a lot of people who were unfamiliar with Girl Genius, and we unloaded a whole stack of bookmarks, postcards, and other memorabilia. Hopefully this will translate into new readers.

While we were recharging, we posted a number of drawings I’d been meaning to get around to, such as my Gaslamp Fantasy Four Seasons, and assorted beverage ads. We did these up as posters, and they did remarkably well. We will soon have them available for sale from our main site.
