Tercona News #20

My last comic con in 2022 was The Cincinnati Comic Expo this past weekend!

I went to this comic con in 2021 and it was fantastic. I couldn’t wait to go back and it did NOT disappoint!

The crowd was so busy on Saturday that I hardly got a chance to talk to anyone because they just kept walking by. It was kind of like the “herd” mentality.

Even though I did sell a lot of comics I didn’t make a profit because my hotel cost was high. I assume the more books I have on my table the more people will have to choose from and the better chances I’ll have at making MORE money by selling more books.

Nonetheless, this is one my my favorite comic cons of the year because I always do well. I can’t wait to go back next year to The Cincinnati Comic Expo.

2022 Monroe Pop Fest – Review

This past weekend I went to The Monroe Pop Fest in Monroe, MI. I hadn’t been to this con since 2019!

I’ve been going to The Monroe Pop Fest since 2016. Back then it was called The Monore Comic Con. In those years this con has always brought in lots of people. Lots of foot traffic.

On another note, since 2017 I’ve always wanted to go to the Cincinnati Comic Expo. The bad thing was, every year both of these cons were on the same weekend.

In 2020 I bought an Artist Alley table for The Moroe Pop Fest AND the Cincinnati Comic Expo because this was the first year they were not on the same weekend. Sadly, we all know how 2020 went.

In 2021, both cons were on the same weekend – again. So I decided to go to the Cincinnati Comic Expo this time. My AA table for the 2022 Monroe Pop Fest was my rollover from 2020.

Now that you know a little backstory, here’s what I think is the 2022 Monroe Pop Fest. It was…OK. First off, they added a “preview” day on Friday from 5-9. I didn’t want to go because this con is about a 1 hour and 45-minute drive from my house and this meant I would have to drive up there….twice! But I went. I thought the Friday hours were unnecessary. Every 3-day con that I went to had there Friday hours usually from 3-9 or 2-8. In any case, Friday is usually 6 hours. For Monroe, it was only 4.

I also believe the attendance was down a little too. There was still lots of foot traffic and people were happy to be there but It just seemed a little slower than in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Finally, I only sold 1 comic too.

I want to make this very clear. Gary puts on a great show. I still love The Monroe Pop Fest and I will return to this show again in the future it’s just that…I think I’ll skip next year and try again in 2024.

Again, it’s a great show. I like it but I felt the attendance was down from previous years. It’s also possible that the people that were there just weren’t buying. lol

2 FREE read web comics!

There are currently 6 comics in the Tercona comic book series. No. #6 is the newest one. You can read the first 5 pages as a “sneak peek” to see how it starts. To read the sample pages click on the cover to comic #6 below.

In this story we get to know a lot more about Maya Rose. First, before Britney goes to bed Maya communicates with her as she’s crushing on Tiffany. The next day Maya warns Paige and Britney their van is about to be carjacked. Maya is very powerful and can see a lot but she can’t see everything. It’s a big world. As Maya meditates with Britney they leave Paige to talk to a crazy old woman with a bizarre philosophy on life. There might be more to this old woman then meets the eye.

Now for the FREE stuff….

I offer 2 comics as a FREE READ web comic. Comic #1 and comic #5. Comic #1 is called – Who is Thea Baymont? This is the comic that started the “Thea Baymont.” story line. You can read that entire comic (like a web comic) by clicking the cover below.

After a local barber shop is robbed, Tercona and Britney return the money to the store only to be attacked by a sniper with a unique slime gun. Who is the new villain with a unique weapon? Who does he work for? Most importantly, will Britney ever dye her hair blue?

Next is comic #5. This comic has nothing to do with the Thea Baymont story line. However, it’s a an LGBT+ comic so I felt the need to make sure anyone around the world count read it. If you know anyone in the LGBT community and you think they’re afraid to talk to anyone, this comic will show you how they feel. Yes, I know some people in the LGBT community are proud of who they are and they should be but for those people who are afraid to tell anyone, this is why! To read comic #5 – Coming Out To A Friend – for FREE click the cover below.

Tercona and Britney help stop an 80 year old woman named Madge from being robbed. When the fight is over Madge mistakes Tercona & Britney for being a couple. This doesn’t sit well with Britney. As the girls walk home, Britney opens up about her sexuality, her home life and how she doesn’t like being called a ‘side-kick’. She tells Paige that she needs more friends she can talk to because it’s hard for her to open up to just anyone. We soon find out why she shows so much anger, rage and anonymously when she fights.

I hope you enjoy my 2 free web comics!

Tercona New #9

Back in June I published my latest comic, #5 Coming Out To A Friend. This is the cover to that comic.

Tercona and Britney help stop an 80 year old woman named Madge from being robbed. When the fight is over Madge mistakes Tercona & Britney for being a couple. This doesn’t sit well with Britney. As the girls walk home, Britney opens up about her sexuality, her home life and how she doesn’t like being called a ‘side-kick’. She tells Paige that she needs more friends she can talk to because it’s hard for her to open up to just anyone. We soon find out why she shows so much anger, rage and anonymously when she fights.

June was Pride month so I made it a FREE READ (like a web comic) because this is an LGBT comic.

We are past June now. After carful thought, I decided it would be best to make sure anyone could read this – anywhere in the world! So as of today, you can read this comic all the time as a FREE READ web comic on this website. All you have to do to read comic #5 – Coming Out To A Friend – for free – is click on the rainbow below.

Now please keep in mind, I do want to make money by selling this comic and if you’re a comic book collector I can’t “sign” a web comic.

I just thought the message of this comic would be better received if anyone could read it.

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND, not all my comics are a FREE READ web comic. With comics #2, #3 & #4 you can read small a sample (the first 5 or 6 pages) of those comics.

You can only read comics #1 and #5 for free , like a web comic on Tercona.com.

Tercona News #2

In any normal year, right about now, I’d be telling about a comic con I attended this past weekend – but this isn’t any normal year. This year we had to deal with a pandemic. So there’s no live comic cons. (Well, I did go to one back in March. Wizard World in Cleveland but after that, all of my cons were canceled for 2020.)

This year I’m been doing a lot of on-line comic cons. Some of them are not really cons but more like a YouTube channel that supports independent comic book creators so they interviewed me to talk about Tercona and other things.

Below are a few videos I did recently.
