    New York Comic-Con

    First con. Anyone else going? Any advice for con do's and don'ts? How do you use one of these as a networking opportunity?

    On one hand, I'm super excited. On the other, I'm flip-flopping between anxious and something close to terrified. I'm not usually a fan of huge crowds. But I'd rather be in a big crowd filled with artists and arts related folks even if they're all jumbled together with a few odd uber nerds - you know, the creepy stalker type two clicks away from Pyscho status.

    So, any advice you could offer, much appreciated. And if you're there selling stuff, let me know. I will be sure to stop by and say hello even if I can't promise to leave a wad of cash.

    I honestly don't want you to get your hopes high for networking. It's not the best place to talk to people. Editors don't really give two shits about 100% of the portfolios that are given to them. There are frequent human traffic jams on Saturday. Prepare for that.

    There might be a nice panel or two. Don't overfill your schedule. Just relax and enjoy the con. Don't be too pressured to talk to people.

    No, they don't care about 99% of the portfolios, because 99% of then are crap. But that doesn't mean they don't want to see that 1%.
