Paul Horn in his 9-page comic “The tale of a local cartoonist trying to make it big at Comic-con” says something you’ll never hear any other convention huckster say – that it’s okay he doesn’t make a lot of money at the con.
He’s really there to grow the audience for his comic Cool Jerk.
Not that he isn’t happy to sell fans all the Cool Jerk merchandise they can carry –
T-shirts, trucker hats, air fresheners, coffee mugs, mousepads, Jones Soda and underwear. Yes, underwear.
Lots of inside stuff about what Comic-Con means to small press publishers.
Comic-Con is a job – one where you work for five days and have 51 weeks off inbetween.
