    Whew! I was kept quite busy at the Indiana Comic Con this past weekend, and I want to thank the hundreds of fans who waited so many long hours to make this old artist feel wanted and appreciated.

    I know there were a few glitches along the way: I actually did not have an assigned table when I walked in on Saturday. I was told basically "Pick which ever tables you want." I've never had that happen to me before and did admonish the organizers for this since this led to more problems with not only line control but also the ability of other comics creators and vendors to ply their trade with my line spilling over into their areas.

    I do congratulate whoever it was who came up with the idea of setting my line up in the center of the Guest Artists section, but it would have helped to have done that earlier. I've heard complaints about the exhibitor's hall being too small, which probably explained why my usual ticket system didn't work too well here.

    Sunday was at least better managed since the show runners relocated me to the celebrity autograph section. I was a bit surprised that, despite my handing out numbered tickets so that fans could go about the con and return without losing their place in line, there were still so many fans who decided to wait for hours for sketches, autographs and photos. It was only after a couple of hours that I learned that the volunteer who was handing out the tickets was not telling the fans how the ticket system was supposed to work and they simply got on line and waited, not knowing that they had the option to leave and return at their own convenience.

    One thing that I can at least take some pride in (apart from feeling so well-loved by so many) is that I never once left my tables for both of the days I was there. I hope that, even for those who were disappointed by certain aspects of the show, my desire to stay focused on my fans helped, in a small way, to make each fan feel that I valued their time on line.

    I know that this was the first Indy Con and I can only hope that the clumsy first steps will be learning experiences and that the fans' concerns will be addressed and corrected. The Indiana fans-- and all those who traveled there-- deserve that. I loved chatting with each and every one of them.
