Derby City Comic Con

Derby City Comic Con

The second Derby City Comic Con went off very well this weekend. As you have probably heard, our company Pandora Promotions officially purchased Derby City this weekend. It was a huge step for our little group and we are honored that Eric Banister trusted us to continue the work he started when he realized that he would not be able to do it anymore. Last year I went with Charlie to Derby City and it was my first ever comic convention. Now a year later I own it. Life is just surreal sometimes.

All of us worked very hard this weekend. As Charlie ran around and met with dealers, artists, and sponsors Aloysius worked the crowd and handed out information about Pandoracon and The Steampunk Symposium. Meanwhile Kristen and I sold comics at the first ever Pandora Pagoda. Our booth worked nicely to both promote our upcoming shows and to unload some of Charlie’s vast comic collection. I really love selling stuff and found it much easier to talk to people about our shows from behind the safety of a table. I think that vending at shows is going to become a more important part of Pandora’s business plan in the near future.

Costumes and panels were not as big a part of the convention as a lot of other show’s I have been to but there are still some great shots out there. Here are some of my favorite shots taken by J. Mack for Get Out Louisville.
