Hey folks, just wanted to give a shout out to a couple fellow event organizers.
All the way across the pond in good Ol' Blighty, Pat Finlay runs a very well regarded indie comics expo, now in it's fifth or sixth year. His success with the Thing helped inspire yours truly to beleive that it could be done here too.
In New Orleans my good friend Leo McGovern runs the Alternative Media Expo, which has been going and growing for some time as well. I've been able to learn a lot from Leo, and he's just a super-awesome dude. This year it's on Sat. 2/23. If you're in the area it's well worth checking out.
