Not Too Long Ago

Long Beach Comic Convention
It’s was five years ago when Juan Ortiz generously shared his corner booth for his Silver Comics at the Long Beach Comic Con with a table on the side. Silver Comics, LBCC and Tuff-Girl were all at the early years of whatever they could yet be.

It continues to be an impressive beginning that Juan launched his comic promoting convention life with posters, printed cards, buttons dispensed by a 25-cent gum ball machine. I don’t think I’ve ever seen before or since such a head-on, professional-grade effort by an independent publisher/ creator in their inception years. It garnered the right reactions of “Why have I not heard of this before?” and “Where can I find more?”

This year’s LBCC is short of two months away, and I’m here making the soft announcement of having an artist alley table there. Check back here in August for confirmation.
