The MECAF Shall Inherit the Earth

The day started off dim and foggy. The fog was still clinging to the horizon off the coast and a taller building nearby to the venue on Fore street where we got to, once again, attend MECAF, the Maine Comic Art Festival. 

Fog was finally lifting. Except for here!
You can see Bug Light from the window!
 It was, as usual, fairly well attended without being too crowded to walk around. I handed out copies of a couple of my mini publications and got some stuff in return. Carrie even spent some money on a few things as well as taking notes on what we may try and get from Casablanca Comics to use up some of my trade credit.

Exhibit Hall
Comix Haul

I met and talked with a couple of the exhibitors, but mostly let Carrie and my mini-comix do the talking. I included my contact info, and a loose blank panel to try and encourage people to draw a panel for the jam comic.
I got this picture to make Marcia jealous.

Before and afterwards we stopped at yardsales. We also stopped by Green Hand and found a book each.

May Day! May Day!

...was yesterday. Today is Free Comic Book Day!

Our comic haul for the day.
Supergirl stepped back as I first tried to take a picture of the Jawa.
Casablanca was strict in keeping us in line.

I now have one too.
Arch has her own trading card

We also saw Jay Piscapo.
A new addition to my Tarzan collection.

 We went to Casablanca Comics in Portland, Gamebox in Topsham, and Zimmies in Lewiston. I gave out copies of Teebo to the shop staff and was pleased to be remembered. Along the way we stopped at a bunch of yard sales and flea markets, finding a few interesting items here and there. We also found a few things just plain happening.

How did you spend the day?
