Really... It's True!

I Was A 'Comic Book Artist' For A Day!

Click Here to see our newly listed Comics, Books, and Graphic Novels! 


I've had several of my new Facebook Friends ask me... If I was a writer or artist in the comics industry, or even a 'wannabe'.  That may be because so many persons in my Facebook Network are in or were in the industry in some capacity. 

Well, the standard answer would be 'No', because I'm a collector / dealer / blogger of comics and other pop culture items!

However, for one special 'day' I was a 'comic book artist', (LOL), as seen in the above 'Certificate of Participation' from Harvey Comics, and the below reprinted blog post I previously published:  

 I Was A Comic Book Artist For A Day....  

... back on August 21st, 1993 at the San Diego Comic Con International! (SDCC).
Of course there were about another hundred other people including two of my children, who also have the official Certificate of Participation given to would-be artists as shown above at the top of this blog post! 
We each drew snowflakes on the splash page of the comic book; there were several hundred of those snowflakes on the page !
Afterwards, I looked for years for that issue with my and my kids' artwork included, but sad to say that the Crash Dummies Series lasted for only 3 Issues!!  Issue #4 was never printed.... we wuz robbed!!
Thanks for nothing Harvey Comics !! LOL

So that's my 'story' and I'm 'sticking' to it!

For those of you that are new to our blog today, we have an ongoing online 'Comic Con and Pop Culture Convention' ourselves here at "Make It So Marketing Inc.", what with our daily blog posts,  and new listings of items for sale in our online eBay Featured Store! 

Thanks again to all of YOU reading our current and archived blog posts!
