Greetings Loyal Airmen, Valerie and the Air Chief spent last weekend in Cheyenne, Wyoming as guests at the second annual Chey-Fi Comic Expo held at the historic Plains Hotel in downtown Cheyenne.
We had such a fun time. Above is the main flier done up for the show, then a shot of Val and the Air Chief at our table once we had it all set up. During the weekend, we made it a point to get outdoors and do a little sight seeing of the city. We took a we pix we thought you’d enjoy seeing.
The Plains hotel is across the street from the landmark train station with its gorgeous clock tower. There were also lots of these get giant boot sculptures depicting elements of Cheyenne’s western history.
Not to be outdone the Air Chief found as yet another giant cowboy boot. And then there were these amazing murals painted on the sides of various building like the sleeping baby above.
One mural hidden away in a back alley was of this guitar playing buffalo. While on the left above, is a long shot of the Plains hotel taken from the Train Station. If any of you Loyal Airmen ever visit this part of the country, do yourselves a favor and visit Cheyenne, it’s a truly beautiful city with great people.
While back the con things were moving into high gear fast. At upper left is the Air Chief, writer Mike Baron and con director himself, Jon Puls. To right of course is our dear friends from Pulp Fission, Zane & Olivia DeGaine.
Fort Collins amigo, Todd Jones of Wicked Awesome Tales was on hand and we got to meet the affable Tim Mandese, a reporter for the Cowboy State Daily covered the show and shot a video you can find at the a paper’s website. A great guy and we joked around with this selfie.
The lovely cos-player holding a copy of our Lady Action is none-other than writer Josh Walker’s wife Macarena. And on the right, the Air Chief was delighted to meet Grace, a very enthusiastic new Mr. Jigsaw fan.
As you can see by the con picture above, we were kept pretty busy during the entire show. We love to look back and see what the big sellers were at the shows we go to. This time the most popular of our titles were the new Sherlock Holmes anthology from Australia in which the Air Chief has a story. Then the Mr. Jigsaw How to Make a Comic Special went over big. Lots of people, both you and old want to learn the mechanics of comics.
Likewise our graphic novel Daughter of Dracula and the Script Book for it went over big time. We sold lots of both together, and separately. The biggest surprise of all was how many copies of our play, Where Love Takes You, we sold. Honestly, there appears to be a very large and vibrant theater community in Cheyenne. Finally, to all who come to our table and picked something up, making this another successful endeavors for us, our heartfelt thanks. We truly hope you enjoy our books.
And there you have this week’s Flight Log, Loyal Airmen. Thanks for stopping by and see you next Friday morning.
Ron – Over & Out!
