Last weekend was GalaxyCon Raleigh. Four days of comic con.
They reduced the number who could enter by a third.
And it reflected in sales.
As thus, this will be our last year for GalaxyCon.
It’s an expensive booth and four very exhaustive days. We’d have two free hours in the morning and one in the evening and that was it. All else was con or sleeping.
There are plenty of other cons in NC that are closer to our budget and time limits.
I did get to see Barry Bostwick again – and he remembered me! Three years ago, he stopped by our booth Saturday morning before opening and talked with us for a while. When I asked if I could take a photo of him, he said “Only if you are in it.” (Which made me laugh every time I passed his booth and saw folks paying $40 to get a photo with him.) He remembered me in 2019 and again this year, so I was over the moon. He is an amazing person.
But we are done with that con. On to the next, which is Greenville Comic Con this Saturday!
