From the CEO’s desk: On the Other Side

Going to comic conventions and such growing up, I always wondered what it was like for the people on the other side of the table.  Yesterday I got that chance.  Joining me for the ride was Justin and Jesse.

Thanks to Matt Dunford, we were part of a grassroots comic convention held at So Cal Comics.  

It was pretty damn fun.  We got to show off our comic, talk to people, and have people read about a group of people that eat cheese-covered onion rings and talk shit about thirsty artists that wanna get their dick wet.   I also met some cool comic creators and we all bonded over our shared love of geekery and all types of ill shit.

I only wish I brought a chair.  For as fun as it was, it also showed just how much of a gap there was between us and comic creators that have been doing the con thing for a while.  They had banners, tablecloths, and comics for sale.  We just had the beta runs for our SSB mangaZINE for reading.

Oh well, you live and you learn.  I wound up heading to HIVE and hung out with Ferris and some of my gym friends from The Boxing Club.  We watched the triple G fight.  I’ll leave my comments on that fight on a later post.

I think Megan had a birthday karaoke thing too.  I wound up going to SoHo afterward.

It was a long day.  I spent most of today being a potato playing Destiny 2.

Time flies when you’re having fun right?

Oh yeah, we should be having our comic for sale within a month.  Things are happening, friends, so stay tuned.

Peace, love, and SSB’s on Instagram now?   WTF when did this–,

Francis

Milestones

I’m gonna be 34 years old this Friday.  Yep.  Time flies when you’re having fun.  I’m not gonna lie to you guys, it’s been an absolute blast making the occasional comic and blog entry with you all.  And for that, I’m grateful.

Also, SSB’s been around for close to 9 years now.  I really need to nail down a definite start date for SSB…I’ll wait for my Timehop to let me know when I made that post with Jenny.

Anyway, I seriously can’t express how happy I am to be around such cool fuckin’ people every day of my life.  Just some things to look forward to over the next few weeks:

  • More Hood Tours.
  • More playthroughs
  • Destiny’s “Look Back” streaming
  • And more comics.  For sure.
  • Otakufighter posts again!

Soooo, to Jared, Ericka, Brian, Justin, Josh, Jairus, Jesse, Mario, you have no idea how much I appreciate you guys putting up with my random shenanigans and even more random schedule.  Thank you.  I appreciate all of you guys more than you can ever know.

So…yeah, this one took a little longer than expected, but it turned out great.  This one was written by yours truly and drawn out by shida214 over on fiverr.

Yes, this is truly how SSB gets down before a con.

From the CEO’s desk

Greetings SSB fam, it’s me again, your lovable CEO, back with another round of updates.  We’ve been pretty busy as of late, and it shows.  We’ve got a smattering of videos and other stuff so without further ado…

For the first time ever, Justin sits down with myself and Brian and discusses his views on fandom, magic missiles, and all types of ill shit.

I eat a california burrito.  Justin eats carne asada fries.  Brian and Justin eat an El Grande Burrito.

On the real though, intestines don’t taste that bad.  I just wouldn’t go out of my way to eat ’em.  Sorry, Jihye.
