    “Back in the Jungle” was from George of the Jungle i think…

  3. Bruce Says:

    To chime in on the comic convention topic (as a complete & total nobody)… I’ve been selling my own written & drawn comics at conventions for a few years & i have always broken even or made money.

    I do the thing where i have a handful of recognizable character prints to lure people over & get one of my books in their hands. It works most of the time but it’s never going to get me rich. My hope had always been that someone with a connection to the big leagues would come across my book & give me a shot at something bigger.

    While i still have yet to be published by anyone in Previews i have picked up enough freelance illustration work to stay busy & supplement my budget to produce more original comics.

    I can see a day when something will have to give. The more cons i do the more money it costs & I’m sure the tipping point where profit loses to travel is near. The most i can hope for is when i finally get my shit together for digital sales that something amazing happens there.

    Hell, now I’ve just made myself depressed…
