All the world’s a stage…

Oh, the things you’ll do to get people excited about your story…

Earlier this week Conor and I were sitting down with an individual interested in helping us out with promoting our comic book series.  We did the meet-and-greet and then he offhandedly joked about the fact that he thought we would perform some of the book for him.  Conor and I looked at one-another, unsure of what to do.  So we did what any two budding showmen would do…

We acted out the first issue for him…

I quickly jumped onto the ground, pretending to be Hamlet washed up on the beach, while Conor became a bird, then a witch, then an emperor, and we promptly led him through the first act of our story.  I think that the waitress at the posh hotel bar was thrown off a bit but I believe we won over the crowd.  In fact, I believe that Conor should be eligible for a support actor nomination for his performance, especially that of the witches…

Conor portrayed both the man AND the bird.

And our review the next day?  “I didn’t think you would actually act out some of the first issue like you did – HYSTERICAL!”

Oh, the things you’ll do to sell a comic book…
