Collects the first year of TALES FROM THE CON along with bonus material

If you've been to a comic convention, you'll recognize the scenes in TALES FROM THE CON, the irreverent webcomic that has appeared on the Emerald City Comic Con website since 2012.

Written by Eisner-nominee BRAD GUIGAR (Evil Inc., HOW TO MAKE WEBCOMICS) and illustrated by CHRIS GIARRUSSO (G-MAN, Mini Marvels), TALES FROM THE CON is an uproarious take on the world of comic books and conventions. Fanboys, fangirls, cosplayers, retailers, volunteers, and pros repeatedly collide on the convention floor (and beyond) to prove that comic conventions are one part festival, two parts group therapy.

    One of my favorites and one of the first jokes occurred when a doctor is tending to a con-goer. The doctor says "I've seen golf knee and tennis elbow, but this is the first time I've treated quarter-bin finger." Other topics covered include fanboys, fans of print vs. print of digital, and the dos and don'ts at conventions. Sure, some of the jokes are eye-roll inducing, but it's all in good fun.

    I really do feel these guys work really well together. I'd be interested in seeing them collaborate on other kinds of projects in the future, if the opportunity arises. Read Full Review

    The cartooning by Chris Giarrusso feels like it belongs as a feature in MAD Magazine or in the Washington Posts Sunday edition. Brad Guigars commentary on the insane behaviors echoes what geeks drunkenly talk about in their hotel rooms. Tales from the Con is a fun read for con goers. Read Full Review
