Joel Watson of Geek webcomic HijiNKS ENSUE at New York Comic Con 2011

I am going to be at New York Comic-Con with Blind Ferret this weekend  (10-13 to 10-16, though I might be really late on Thursday due to my plane landing around when the show opens).

I will have books 1 and 2, T-Shirts (including the new “Winter Is Coming” shirt and maybe a debut of another new shirt), stickers, sketches and prints.

I am going to be staying in Brooklyn so I hope to hit up the Doctor Who themed bar, The Way Station. Maybe we can do a bit of an informal Fancy Bastard Meetup there.

While I am gone, I will be running a few guest comics created just for you by several of my webcomicing cohorts (Paul SouthworthSam LoganRandy Milholland and Alina Pete). Based on what I’ve seen so far, this will be the most epic HE guest week ever.

Baltimore Comic-Con 2011!!!

Why am I wearing kevlar body armor and a making sure my life insurance policy is up to date? That’s right! I’m going to Baltimore this weekend!

Joel Watson of HijiNKS ENSUE at Baltimore Comicon 2011

Baltimore Comic-Con is the first show I ever exhibited at (2009), and for some reason has been the annual gathering spot for some of my most supportive readers. It’s a very low key show, focused almost entirely on comics. There is little to no media (TV, Movies, general entertainment industry) presence there which makes for a show that is easy to navigate and pretty stress free. I will be in the Artist Alley right next to Dannielle Corsetto at Table #A187 or so. I will have books 1 and 2, “The Doctor Is In” shirts, “Team Edward [James Olmos]” shirts and “Ewok Stare” shirts, plus prints, stickers and Fancy Sketches.

We have had a really fantastic Fancy Bastard meetup each year. This year FB Adam M. is taking it upon himself to plan the festivities. We are going to have a food, drinks, movie, party-type situation at his parents’ house (since they are locals and are totally the kind of cool parents that will buy us beer and let us stay up real late) and if you are interested in attending you can find the details HERE on G+ or talk to Adam directly on G+ or Twitter. Hope to see you at the show and the meetup!

HijiNKS ENSUE At San Diego Comic-Con 2011

San Diego Comic-Con is this week! I will be with Ryan and Lar and Danielle at the Blind Ferret Booth [Booth 1332] in the Webcomic area. I will have books 1 and 2, prints, sketch cards, stickers and nearly all of my shirts.

This will be my debut show as a part of Blind Ferret Entertainment. This is a great partnership for me in that it will allow me to focus more on making comics and less on the administrative aspects of running a small business. Blind Ferret are going to be producing all of my T-Shirts, my books (no more 4 month preorders!), managing many of my convention appearances (which allows me to do bigger shows that I can’t afford to do on my own), and opening up possibilities for new kinds of HE merch like plushies and what not. The new Blind Ferret powered HE STORE will be opening soon. Hopefully right after comicon.

If you are going to be at the show, please come by booth 1332 and say hi. I will be the one going on 2 hours of sleep and propping my self up against Lar deSouza.
