Things are going to change? I'm nearly "con"-vinced...

If there is one thing I learned from my last convention, it's that it's probably not such a good idea to go a comic shopping spree every time I go to a con. They fined me at the airport for excess luggage and for the price of the fine it would have been cheaper to order it online!

Which is what I'm going to do from now on...

If I know I'm going to meet someone at the next con I go to and I know they sell a certain comic, I'll buy it from them, but if not, I'll order it online. Why bring a suitcase filled with Strangers in Paradise and Bone when I can buy them easily online or at Ebay?

If I go to a con I want to meet people I admire, and get stuff from them or stuff I can't get elsewhere, makes sense, right?



And.... I'm nearly positive I'm going to San Diego Comic Con next year, I've emailed some of my favorite artists and it seem almost all of them will be there. MoCCA is the close runner-up, and Dragon-Con comes in third, it doesn't seem to have that many people I want to meet...

And I'll also go to the UK Thing too, unless something unexpected happens! I also plan to go to a big con in Spain to see how thing have changed since the last one I went to a few years ago, which was lame...

MoCCA was amazing! You should consider SPX too as it will be awesome too! Where do you stay and such?

I highly recommend MoCCA! It's very fun, and there are a lot of really cool artists there, and they somehow don't attract the stormtroopers and cosplayers like the bigger conventions!
Also, I will definitely be going again!
I second Alvaro though, come to SPX too!

also, a pretty decent solution to your luggage problem, you could easily ship some things home in a box before you leave!

If I lived in the US I'd probably go to all those cons, but I can only afford one trip and it has to be big enough to justify it... :(

True true! It'll be cool when we get to hang out then though!
