WonderCon 2010, Day 3

The shorter, quieter last day of WC 2010 gave Genevieve a chance to do some shopping in the morning and smaller crowds also allowed her to focus more on the many commissions she took on. To the last few guys that she wasn't able to finish the commissions for...sorry about that! Genevieve has your contact info and will be in touch with you about either having it ready for Fanime 2010 or mailing it to you.

We had a great time at this year's show and the interest in Islands in the Sky continues to be strong among new and old fans alike. Thank you to all our faithful readers in being so patient with Issue 2. We're very sorry for disappointing you but we will do our best to deliver as soon as we're able.

Super thanks go to Matt and Ben, our left side neighbors for being so cool and laid back...Vince, Kelly, and Chuck , our right side neighbors for always offering go get us eats...Becky & Frank, our opposite side neighbor for her awesome Kayli drawing...Rachel and Mike, our opposite-right neighbors at Poseur Ink for always providing fun conversation...Cory, our opposite-left neighbor (Plotless Comics) for breaking the ice on Day 3 and hanging out and talking with us a bit. Great shows happen because of great neighbors and you all rock! Thank you!

Oh yeah, super thanks to Emily, creator of Otherkinds, for dropping off the latest copy of her book with a super cool pic of Zlata & Kayli fighting over some meat! So awesome! =) Almost forgot Manuel, creator of the awesome Fearless Zombie Hunters...thanks so much for your book, we love it! Gah, I know I missed some people...sorry, I'm about to fall unconscious after having only a McSausage McBiscuit McEgg to eat all day.

Stay tuned for the final group of customer photos! I took a few on my BlackBerry while Genevieve was away and I'll start with this awesome R2-D2 wearing the Manty Hat! =)

UPDATE: Added the rest of the pics for Sunday's show and some captions for a few of the shots.

"Beep doop derp derp beep boopity boop!"
"Someone get this ****ing blue wanna-be mynock offa me!"

The super nice Llyn (hope I spelled that right)! Thanks for
stopping by and chatting to us, see you at the next show! =)

Genevieve and Nick with the commission you see below.
Thanks for being so patient, Nick!

Yes, that is a Tricorder she's trying to hail the Enterprise with.../sigh =)

Cory from Plotless Comics! Awesome shirt!

Emily! Creator of Otherkinds! Love the goggles! =)

We leave you a shot of Genevieve in her sad, trash bag parka.
Thanks, everyone...see you next show!

  1. That day was craaazy! I was so glad to be able to stop by Sunday. The trash bag parka is at least better than my "umbrella"--the Megamoth Studio sign. Apparently, acrylic doesn't hold up as well as I thought in a DOWNPOUR.

    See y'all at Fanime!!

  2. Heh heh...we're glad you came by too! We love the Kayli and Zlata pic you gave us. Fanime is great because it's much more chill and you can sorta relax, chat with table neighbors more, and get more commissions done. It's gonna be fun...seeya there!
