SDCC 1999

The first time we went to San Diego Comic Con was in 1997 and it literally changed our lives.

Only two years after that, in 1999, we threw all our chips on self-publishing a mini-series, full color, and having a big booth at the convention, all the mistakes young excited creators can make.
We had two issues out of four ready at the show, our booth had this big backlit sign in front of the table, we had free posters, we raffled a real sword and we had this huge papier-mâché statue of Charlemagne.  I had brought the last two pages of the series to finish during the show, a double spread on issue 4.
We did everything we could to leave a big impression.

We've been to San Diego many times after that, but this is one of the fondest memories we have of the show.
