I really didn't know what to expect...

it is my first time as an exhibitor at Anaheim, let alone a major show such as this. Don't get me wrong, i've done shows before, but none this large or heavily promoted. So I didn't know what to expect. Were my goals going to be too ambitious? What if it's a bust? Or, what if I didn't bring enough stuff? As it would soon play out, most of my questions were about to be answered.

We got to the venue around noon and it took us well past the doors opening at 5pm for us to get set up because we brought more than what our little 10x10 could contain. But with a few adjustments, we were able to fit it all in.

Sales came quick and just before 5, when dealers were stalking the grounds looking to beat the opening rush. The graphic novels were popular and i've already sold all 15 copies of Superman: Secret Identity I had on hand (time to refresh the booth). I'm glad I spent the last 2 days mixing and matching these books so that I was able to compile a nice variety, enough to fill 15 longboxes. Also discounting them from the original retail price was a good move that paid dividends.

Everyone loved my "attention grabbers" on display (Incredible Hulk 181, X-Men 1, and a few other silver age keys and CGC books). The draw of these books got people into the booth and once there, they shopped. Too bad i'll be taking these to the CGC booth soon :)

Speaking of visiting other booths, Rob Liefeld and Athur Suydam have signing stations litterally 20 ft from my booth. Rest assured that as I type this I am also going through my boxes for books worth the CGC Signature Series designation. I also have a few "blank cover variants" that I am considering geting sketched if the price is right, cause I don't want to spend all the money I make this weekend lol.

This is all positive news and makes me excited for the next two days. I guess I should get some sleep now, cause its day 2 tomorrow!
