    Up to Buzzbeak if this stays, but this question is geared more towards us webcomic and funnies writers and readers here at TFW than just the TFW community in general.

    So, who here is planning on going? Don't know how possible it'd be to do, but I'd really be interested in getting together with a lot of the comic makers here in person. And, for the readership of this section on TFW, it'd be kinda cool to meet some of the webcomic authors and just have a good time.

    Even if we all just hooked up for a little while, or picked a particular afternoon to do lunch, or an evening for dinner, or even just an hour or something in one of our rooms or the lobby after one of the convention days...whatever we might be able to pull off.

    So, what do you guys think? Possible? I guess we'd have to see who all is going first. Let me know what you think. :)

    I won't be going, but I think it's a cool idea. I even ran something like this by the guys who do the tfw podcasts, but never heard a word back from them.

    Heheh. Same here.. I wish I were working already and have earned some cash and can fly to US just for this! xD

    But with economic downturns and my studies.. That cannot happen. :(  And yes, I really would like to meet the comic makers in person! :D 


    It's "there", not "their". :)  Have fun 'nok, and everyone else who's going! :D

    If only I could be there.... I'd print off a bunch of panels of my comic and autograph them for you! :D

    There's no way I'll make it to California. It would be fun to meet a lot of you and put faces with names though. Maybe one of these days when Botcon is close enough for me to drive from SC I'll have to do that.

    If a group of you do get together, take a few pictures for the rest of us. :thumb

    Sadly, no for me as well. Can't go anywhere this summer, and the fact my relatives live close to Pasadena as well just bites. Oh well, not like I'm not spending enough money already on Shinkis and 1/72 chainguns and all...

    Sadly I won't be attending. I've got a grandpa who lives about 10 minutes from the location in Pasadena, and since I live in Utah I could fly/drive down real easy on the wallet, but my problem is that I'm not interested in spending $360 for the toys, as I only like 2 of them, and I don't have anyone else to go with, since my brother lost his job, and he wanted to go with me. I love the idea that it's on the west coast and close, but I'd rather pay twice as much and know that I'm gonna have a blast. Plus, I'm really not into the movie line toys this time around, and maybe next year they'll have something new to make my credit card leave the wallet. (IE: I don't want a bunch of 'first release' stickered movie line toys)

    That would be cool, but alas, I can't go. Too young and all that.

    I'll be at Botcon! :D  I think it would be great to meet and talk with other comic makers! :D 

    This sounds like a really good idea to me! :) 

    Also, I second Tcracker's video conference idea! It would be a great way for those who can't attend to also participate! :D

    I can fix computers, but I don't know anything about networking. :(  It's when ideas like this come up that I wish I did. :( 

    Still, I think it's a great idea that definitely needs to be looked into! :)
