Comic Geeks @ Kaisen 4 mission a success!

Monday, October 13th, 2008

Geek Mission Control is pleased to announce that the mission to Kaisen 4 Entertainment Fair was a complete success. The convention, organized by the awesome team behind Paquines.com, broke attendance records from previous Kaisen cons. It was well organized, full of people and fun was had all around.

When we went to Kaisen 3 back in April, we barely had a month’s worth of comics. Nobody knew who we were or what we were doing there, some people even stared at us as if we were freaking aliens. This time around, our fans were there waiting for us. It was really awesome for people to come by our table to tell us how much they enjoyed a particular comic strip or how the first thing they do every Sunday is to check out our comic.

It is for those little moments that we continue to work hard week after week.

During the convention we worked on a comic strip (which you shall see next Sunday!), got interviewed by a T.V. crew and handed out inscription forms for our new Be A Geek Contest. The response was outstanding. We are even considering calling the Xara people for an endorsement deal, since many graphic artists that were watching as we worked on the comic bombarded us with questions about the software were were using to draw.

From all of this, my favorite moment was when a fan asked us for our autographs. I wish to thank that fan for thinking us important enough to sign a comic for him. It was a really nice feeling,  made us all warm and fuzzy inside.

Geeks: As Seen on T.V.

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

Almost a month ago, we took our little comic strip to the Kaisen Entertainment Fair and met fans of all ages. We all had a blast meeting and greeting, and even created a comic strip live during the convention. During the con, the crew from MechaHumano came by our table and interviewed Pete (Rick and Germán automatically run away when they see cameras. In fact, in the video you can actually see Rick trying to hide :P …). It was a short interview, and Pete was caught completely off-guard without his usual make-up people and his team of speechwriters, but we think it came out alright.

Well, the episode containing the short interview is online, and you can watch it after the jump. The whole thing is in Spanish, but if you don’t speak Spanish, you’ll still be able to giggle at our expense. Once again, thanks to the MechaHumano team for the time!
