Come find me at the Montreal Comic Con! Sept 12-14

I have a table at the upcoming Montreal Comic Con!

UPDATE: I have my table number now, I’m going to be at booth 2738!

Good news for Dream Life, we moved a nice chunk of books at the show in Toronto, including adding three new retailers to our distribution efforts! Hope to match that in Montreal at least in part. I have some home court advantage maybe, so that might help? Any rate, It’ll be primarily Dream Life, and prints on hand. Thinking about making some coupon code/gift cards for my digital comics? We’ll see if i can spare it the brain cells in the next few days.

If you want to buy some art from me, check out this page and order in advance, to pick up from me at the show? I’ll have some art there as well for sale. And if you’d like to pre-order a copy of my book to pick up at the show, buy it via this link and in the special instruction, mention you’ll be at the show, between now and the 12th, and i’ll make sure to have one ready for you there! I’ll be doing personalized portraits in the copies at request.

I’ll be up for doing commissions too, if you’d like to reserve one in advance the limit will be 4 done before the show! Contact me about the details.

I mentioned that I was able to utilize the closing hours of FanExpo, to present Dream Life to a few retailers in the Toronto area and persuade them to stock a hand full of copies of the first [Launch] editions! Here’s the list of my new good friends. 🙂 Thanks for taking a chance on my book guys!

The venerable and recently reborn Silver Snail! Had a nice brief face to face with George about doing things in store in the near future. This would be fantastic. And with the copies he took from me that means i’m stocked at both stores now, assuming Ottawa still has one left.

The guys at Gotham Central in Mississauga seem really enthusiastic about supporting Canadian creators! Got a lot of interests I intend to follow up talking with them about, and they took 4 copies from me for their shelves.

And, I sold a pair to Doug Wright Spotlight Award winner,  Steven Gilbert. One for him and one to try out at Fourth Dimension Comics in Newmarket! The man obviously has excellent taste!

That brings the number of stores that are or have stocked Spilt Ink books, Including Dream Life | a late coming of age, &/or physical issues in some cases of Revolver Quarterly, up to 30 since the relaunch of the imprint!

For independent distribution, via a one man operation done when I have time over the summer, so too bad! A solid start anyway, in a long game.

So, i’ll see you at the Montreal Comic Con? Watch my twitter for the announcement of my table number, and i’ll be around the Syn Studio table as well at some point, and they will know where to find me too.
