Going in with some trepidation of how good of a con this would be for me as an indy publisher, I am happy to report I did FANTASTIC business in Artist Alley this year! Made table on the first day, and sold a ton of LITTLE WHITE MOUSE OMNIBUS editions at $25 a pop, which blew my mind for selling a big ticket item in Artist Alley. The traffic in the Alley was great, and I did good business, met a ton of people and networked like crazy! Hung out with cool comic people like Carla Speed MacNeil (FINDER), Jennie Breeden (DEVIL'S PANTIES), David Petersen (MOUSE GUARD), Pam Bliss (KEKIONGA), and Johanna Draper Carlson (COMICS WORTH READING.COM), and met many fans and friends who I hadn't seen in a long time. Chicago is still a really strong show, servicing a very active fan base, and I'll be back next year with no hesitation.

And back by popular (?) demand, my camera was clicking and my snark flying, here's my own pictorial review of the convention from my vantage point in Artist Alley:
