OMNIUM GATHERUM 64
Welcome once again to the Omnium Gatherum.
It is now nighttime in San Diego as I write this. The long short day of Comic-Con International, also known as Preview Night, has been over for three hours. The convention center is empty at this point in time, the wares and toys and other items of the various publishers of all shapes and sizes and resting in the dark, waiting for tomorrow’s true beginning. In hotels and condos and all sorts of other accommodations in and around the greater city of San Diego are the sleeping (and maybe not sleeping) forms of those professionals and exhibitors who will once more head into the breach of the convention center in the morning, preparing for the first long true long day.
I am only up because I wanted to write something of the day. And because I’m waiting for my migraine pills to kick into action.
The preview night at The Antidote Trust booth went by smoothly, with some initial sales typical of the first night. Folks at the con are waiting to see all of the treasures being offered before they make their decision to buy. So they walk by booths, looking, watching, trying to see that one or four things which will catch their eyes and need to go home with them. And so they walked by The Antidote Trust booth. But we have the rest of the show to attract those new and old fans, to get them to sample our wares. We will have the same chance as everybody else does at Comic-Con. And we will do our best not to waste it.
I had better get some sleep now. I have to be at the booth bright and early in the morning. All to set up and be ready for the new day and all of the challenges and wonders it will bring.
I said it before, but I can’t wait.
