Up Up Down Down is going to Toronto Comic Con! Our info doesn’t seem to be online yet, but that’s because we submitted late, and we are not nearly as important as the DeLorean from Back the Future. I can’t wait to sit inside the belly of that 1.21 gigawatts beast.

I’ve been refreshing the FanExpo page each day waiting for their Artist Alley PDF to show up. As soon as it appeared and we all started getting excited at the prospect of our first con in August, the wonderful Twittermachine told me that Toronto Comic Con was coming – in three weeks.

Fortunately the show organizer is a wonderful lady who is probably accustomed to dealing with last-minute people such as myself. She may have even given us a table before we gave her our dollas.

Back when the comic started I pictured going to a con. Sopes drawing a little doodle for some anime fan … asking him to sign “to Jessica, with all my love.” automaton making a flippant remark to someone being stupid. Now it’s happening.

If you are in the Toronto area, or are going to the con anyway, we invite you to come out and see us, fans. I know several thousand people from Canada have visited our site, and there is no Canada I can imagine that “isn’t close enough” to attend. Remember, it’s not just us friends, it’s little Annie Skywalker from Episode I, The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase, Chewbacca, Lando, Jay Bauman (the guy behind Red Letter Media those amazing Episode I reviews on YouTube), Kate Vernon from BSG, Screech, and a slew of artists like the guy who drew for Gargoyles.

We’ll be selling prints of our most popular comics as well as a few of our personal picks, and for those outside of Canada we hope to get our online store up by that time as well.

So stop by our booth, and remove that barrier that exists between faceless comic creators and faceless readers who look at an average of 2.5 pages every day and stay on our site for 35 seconds. We’ll be there.
