The great state of California has an event so big that people there will even buy Franks and Beans memorabilia. It is true! I kind of have proof.
The big trip to the San Diego Comic-Con is now behind us and it’s time to get back to serious, adult things, like blogging about Franks and Beans. But don’t worry, pictures are involved.
Larry and I made our way to the Golden State for Comic-Con 2012, and it did not disappoint. While the primary mission was to sell comics like Teddy and the Yeti and FUBAR, we also took the time to run around the show floor (literally) once or twice and partake in some of the festivities.
Before the show, I made some new discs of F&B seasons one and two. Previous versions were in a clamshell case and on a Lightscribe DVD. This time around, I wanted to do something a little different and made painted DVDs such as the one above. I’ll post more about these gems later.
If you look to the left of this picture, you might see the DVDs on sale. Or you may not. But they are there! And at quite a reasonable price, too! We sold a handful of these and handed out dozens of cards to both willing and unwilling attendees, so hopefully there’ll be some more traffic checking out our videos. Also, if you are new to this site and found us because of Comic-Con, let me know and I’ll send you a dollar.
One of the highlights of the trip was getting to dress up as Jet Boy and Jet Girl from the Venture Bros. cartoon. And when you look good, people stand up and take notice. The top picture features VB creators Doc Hammer and Jackson Public, and directly above, here we are with Matt Atchity, EIC of the Rotten Tomatoes website that we all love so very much. What began as an innocent lunch of burritos from the nearby Taco Truck (TM) turned into an interview with Sirius/XM Radio. We plugged comics and FRANKS AND BEANS OH YEAH WOO! So at one golden moment, for but the briefest of moments, you could hear us talk about our stupid Internet sketch comedy show across the globe. I’m sure the world stopped for a moment to recognize the occasion.
After the show, Larry and I toured the Warner Bros. studio and some stuff. Along the Way, we visited the FRIENDS set, where we took this very intimidating picture. Perhaps the WB would like to pick up a great series based on an Internet comedy show made by guys who probably aren’t that young anymore, at least in Hollywood terms?
Comic-Con was overwhelming and successful on many different levels. There are things we could have done better, but overall I think it went well.
This blog wasn’t as funny as it should have been, and for that I apologize. But what can you do? I’m only one man.
