Also at Hartford Comic Con, I was asked by Surfin' Dead from the blog Juano's Addiction about my Con experiences, best/worst/weirdest, here's my answer...
Surfin' Dead: What's your best/worst/weirdest Con story to date?
Alex: I’ve had a lot of good times at cons to really nail down one. Meeting people, seeing friends, traveling, but one of my favorite things is to meet people face to face for the first time who I have been working with through emails.
The worst, well... hmmm... I’m not sure if I have a worst story yet, there’s been a bunch of things that people would do to get on my nerves but nothing too terrible and nothing too interesting.
But weirdest, well that’s another story! One time I was drawing sketches for people in books we were selling of your basic characters - Spider-Man, Batman, etc. - and this one guy asked me to draw a self portrait in his book. And as I was drawing myself, he started to criticize the drawing telling me that my eyebrows were thicker, or that my nose was bigger and so on. Another time I was at a show with, at the time my girlfriend now my wife, and a guy came up and asked us to sign pictures of ourselves that he found somewhere on the internet. The last one I’ll mention is a guy I met on a Free Comic Book Day and I asked if he would like to see a book I was selling, and he began to yell at me that God is dead and that his no good ex-wife did not understand that and that’s why they are separated, then stormed off swearing. But anyways it’s all a part of the fun.
True story. Check out everybody's answer here!
