FallCon Photos

Well, I had a great time at FallCon two days ago, especially since I actually had a table! I sold several of the comics I've reviewed at cover price along with a signature on them, including Adventures of the Kool-Aid Man, Silent Hill: Dying Inside #1 and 2, and Batman: Fortunate Son.

I met some wonderful fans of the videos and hopefully made some new ones! So click on "Read More" to see some awesome people who visited the table and some other goodies.

Seated beside me is Marcus Almund, writer of the awesome independent comic Razor Kid!



I met this awesome girl several months ago at MicroCon with a similar hat. It is made of pure win, since she can actually fit her whole head in it. She also got my copy of US-1 #1.


This would be S.P. Burke, artist and creator of Oh Goodie! and he gave me a print of Alan Moore. He is awesomesauce.


This is the very nice woman who bought the copy of Batman: Fortunate Son from me at its ridiculous price of $15. In order to sweeten the deal, I went and got Gene Ha's signature inside of it, as well (no, I did not tell him that I had made fun of the way Batman and Robin looked in it. Please don't tell him). If I remember correctly, she also bought one of the T-shirts (more on that down father).


And here is continually awesome writer and inker Keith Champagne, who I've known through both his Blog AND his frequent appearances at Minnesota conventions. Obviously he was tired by the fact that IT HAD SNOWED. IN OCTOBER. He's also currently producing the very well-written and intriguing superhero maxiseries "The Mighty" and you can find more about him at his blog.


There was a Linkara cosplayer.

THERE WAS SOMEONE COSPLAYING AS ME. I have reached true celebrity status. XD


This awesometastic ninja lady not only purchased the Ninja-Style Dancer T-shirt but also has made fanart of me! You can find the art shown here at her DeviantArt Page, but as you can see, she's made one of me and my bear (I love the way she's drawn him. CUTE!) as well as Spoony and I singing "He tried to kill me with a forklift."





EDIT: This gentleman, named Kyle, posted in the comments who he was, so he has now been identified! He was nice enough to purchase Captain Planet, Star Trek, and NFL Superpro. A friend of his got his hands on Adventures of the Kool-Aide Man and a the Uncanny X-Men issues I'd reviewed. Good on them!


Big apologies to this gentleman because I can't remember his name or what he bought (well, aside from the "I am a Man!" shirt). Still, big props to him for coming out and supporting both comics as well as myself, so kudos, sir!

Alrighty, now about the T-shirts. Yes - t-shirts will be made available, but currently I'm not publically announcing the shirts quite yet. Why? I'm waiting off until the store for ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.com opens, but as soon as it does, shirts will be made available. The ones I had at the convention were the samples I had gotten from Printfection to make sure they printed right and I only had one of each. The "I am a Man!" shirts, however, are being done via TGWTG and Mike Michaud was nice enough to give me a few in different sizes that I was able to sell at the convention.

Otherwise, coming up expect shirts for:
-"Bees, My God."
-"Youngblood's Disease Foundation"
-"Punk is nothing but death and crime and the rage of a beast!"
-"Ninja-Style Dancers" (Shown above)
-"POLLO LIVES!"

In any case, that's all for now! Thanks for watching the videos, thanks for supporting me, and thanks to those who saw me at the convention!

Speaking of, a special thank you to the Midwest Comic Book Association for putting on an awesome convention!

Hey if you were coming somewhere near me I'd come see you. It's your fault I've gotten back into comics, I even indulged myself and bought Watchmen the other day with my lunch money(overpriced college cafeteria!).

It was fantastic meeting you there good sir. *salute* Thanks for the Bees t-shirt (it fits just fine), having time to chat and the signed comics. I hope everybody that was able to attend Fallcon had a great time.

Drunken Lemur said...

Dang. Now I have to put my nose to the grind to compete with you. But not now, since I feel like how Silent Hill: Dying inside looks. Maybe a series about animated shows. Well now that I have my blog, I can put up convention picks.

S.P. Burke said...

You not only posted the picture of me with you, but also a link to my comic. Lewis, have I mentioned that YOU ARE THE MAN!!!...because I think I should've.

Wow. I wish I coulda been there. Maybe we will meet one day.

Well, I'll probably buy one of those t-shirts when the TGWTG store opens. I kinda want the Youngblood's Disease one.

James said...

Awesome pics. I'm really glad you had a great time, Linkara. Pity I couldn't see you at the con (don't have the money; still looking for a job). But maybe someday. At least I can still see your great videos.

MetFanMac said...

I sporfled when I saw the cosplayer.

And that is some magnificent fan-artwork!

Mountain King said...

You know the truly great thing about being English, living in a town somewhere north of Manchester? No. Let me tell you, we NEVER have anything like this here. No forget here, try anywhere near here!
When we do get something it's usually Manchester arena and cost an arm and a leg just to get in the building.
As you can guess I'm jealous. Hope everyone had a good time...
Now if you excuse me, a strange thing with four wheels just came past my newfangled transparent wall, and would believe it there wasn't a horse attached!

MFlorian said...

Wow. That looked awesome.

Hey Lewis, if you ever come to Sacramento, I'd love to get a picture with you.

And buy a shirt.

But not the comics. Those things are terrible. =)

Oh! Do you think you'll be offering autographed copies of Revolution of the Mask at these conventions? I'll need five. Just make them out to...uh...¬_¬ "eBay".

(Five points to anyone who gets the reference.)

discoeyeball said...

Jeez, you think snow in October was bad? Thanks to life on the east coast of Canada, I had to put up with snow in AUGUST.

That Youngbloods Disease shirt sounds pretty awesome, by the way.

Power said...

If you ever consider swinging by the UK, please do. :(

Btw, are you still headed for Youmacon? I was going to get a friend to bring fanart for you to sign for me but then she told me you'd been dropped off the list. D:

The Shilohan Ninja said...

Link, gotta say, dude, sounds like you had a pretty awesometastic time with your table, man. So when you planning to come to Seattle with that table, eh? Those shirts sound pretty tempting.
Speaking of which, I've got an idea for another one, if you're interested that is; Wouldn't it be cool to have the cover of the Batbaby comic on a shirt with a caption underneath that read "He makes science cry"?
Get back at me and let me know what ya think, bro. I'll be waitin'.

Lewis Lovhaug said...

I'm still going to Youmacon, it's just they accidentally put me under Team FourStar's banner. They're working to correct it, but obviously they have other things on their minds. ^_~

Rhomega said...

If I had gone, I definately would've visited you. Would've bought a shirt too, maybe a comic. How was it managing your own booth?

TheGoose said...

Where did you get the name for your robot, Pollo?

Checkmate said...

Nice to see you get your own stall

Risenhellfire said...

Hi, it's the guy who wore the Cthulhu shirt. I guess I can't remember if I gave my name. It's Kyle.

I bought the Captain Planet, Star Trek, and NFL Super pro. MY friend who was with me, bought your X-men issues and Kool-aid man comic.

Queen Anthai said...

"I AM A MAN!" had better be a widely-available t-shirt, too. :P

You're doing a "Bees. My God." shirt? Well, I know what I'M asking for for Christmas this year!

(That girl's fanart was ADORABLE, by the way!)

Anonymous said...

Glad to see you had a good time!

I am so totally buying a couple of your T-shirts when the store opens.

Anonymous said...

After seeing this I just have one question:

Will you have a table and/or any panels at Youmacon?

Ben said...

We got you listed under TGWTG now. Though if you aren't looking for it you might miss it.

hasoon said...

Hullo, Linkara, I gave you an AWARD. Right here..

Thankyuh.

monkey1z said...

dude, all you need now is I-AM-A-MAN punch packets and my life will be complete

Taranaich said...

So you have your first cosplayer, then? How very surreal it must seem for you. Then again, you're not exactly a difficult subject like Optimus Prime or the Predator!

Emily said...

Looks like you had fun!

I agree with one of the previous commenters. The adoring public demands I-AM-A-MAN! Punch. :P

Lew Morgan said...

A Linkara cosplayer, eh?

That truly is your CMoA!!! (Crowning Moment of Awesome)

Pike said...

Sweet shirts, bro.

*audible wink*

The Other said...

Awesome! Wish I'd been there

Corey said...

Giant Purple Top Hat Girl has a very awesome giant purple top hat and I concur that it is made of pure win.

Troy said...

*useless notes* I REFUSE to pay 50 bucks for a facny workout shirt!...with that said

Linkara, are you selling those "-I am a MAN!" t-shirts? I can bet money that would turn heads in a gym.
