After the dust has settled

After back-to-back monster events[i] to start out Lindol Comics’ convention schedule for 2019, a thought occurred to me this afternoon while I was working on the script for Issue #5:

“What have people been doing with their Lindol Blank Cover Variants?”

How we got here

Published in September 2017, the print run of the first issue stood at a solid 500 copies with 100 designated as the limited edition blank cover variant[ii].  Now, between the creative team’s complimentary copies, advance orders, and convention sales–more than a few are currently circulating locally and abroad.

So, I am curious, if you own one of our blank cover variants…how did you make use of them?

Are they stored for safe keeping?  Did you have a commission done by Lindol co-creator Randy Valiente? Maybe another artist worked their magic on it?  Did you have it graded?[iii]

Getting second place

With every intention of being the first one to set up shop, I arrived at the Ayala Museum shortly before the 7:00 am ingress period.  But to my surprise, the good people from Adarna House were already there and putting on the finishing touches to their table!  I guess you could say, they beat me to the punch!

Oh well, you can’t win them all.

On a more serious note, the Ayala Museum was such a great host and venue!  They gave all the exhibitors ample table space to display our products and their personnel: Topnotch.  Helpful and efficient are the best ways that I can describe the Pop-Up staff, museum security, and maintenance crew.  Great job guys!
