Just back from San Diego’s ComiCon — First Second’s first time! We had a little booth, but it was a happening one. We came with the attitude of getting our first taste, and learning for next year. We were pleasantly surprised by the number of people coming by who knew all about :01 already.
The classy Eddie Campbell was signing THE FATE OF THE ARTIST and showing a tantalizing glimpse of his upcoming THE BLACK DIAMOND DETECTIVE AGENCY, about which we’ll be making plenty of noise (Spring ’07 title).
Gene Yang was also signing at the First Second booth. Advance copies of his AMERICAN BORN CHINESE were on hand, not for sale until this September. That didn’t stop everyone from wanting their own. Also at the booth from First Second, Gina!
All kinds were reading First Second books.
