Dave the Punk Rock Cat Kicks Out the Jams Page 13
So I am back from Fanime, which seems to have hit me like a ton of bricks. A tsunami of bricks, if you will, has just washed over me, in as much as bricks CAN wash over someone, or something. It was actually pretty sweet, just really tiring, I'll get more into it in my Con Reviews section, along with some pictures.
One thing that I WILL talk about that happened at the con was the stunning realization I came to. Dave the Punk Rock Cat fucking SELLS! I ran out of his books at Fanime, straight up ran out! There's none left! What started out as a mere distraction from what I thought of at the time as my bigger story (Blood Will Tell), became a phenomenon!
I guess I didn't see it, or didn't want to admit it at first, because I was so proud of Blood Will Tell, but when I come home form a con with 20-ish each of each volume and ZERO Daves, well... one is forced to consider one's plans of action.
I suppose a lot of it has to do with the demographic as well. I mean, this is Fanime we're talking about, and Dave is a sarcastic talking cat who goes on funny adventures. What about that doesn't appeal to the Fanime crowd? Even though it was somewhat unintentional, I am really glad it happened in that way. It also makes me glad I am about tits deep into my next Dave book ^^
I still wanna work on Blood Will Tel, and all the other stories I've gotten lined up, but Dave will probably continue to be my main focus, for now.
Once again, i can't help but thank my good friend Steve for being such an inspiration for this character.
