Had a ton of fun at Wondercon 2013, Anaheim over the easter weekend. Archaia, the publishers of Mumbai Confidential had arranged for signings of advance copies of the hardcover edition (a WC exclusive prior to the scheduled release on April 30th. Amazon Preorder : http://bit.ly/mcprint). It’s always fun to meet up with the Archaia team.
As soon as the show floor opened, I was pleasantly surprised to find that a couple of fans actually came seeking to buy Mumbai Confidential hardcover (as they had read the PREVIEWS magazine interview I had given). Joe (pictured here) set a record of sorts by becoming the first-ever person to purchase a hardcover copy of Mumbai Confidential vol 1 “Good Cop, Bad Cop”
On Saturday, I was on a panel about “Writing For Comics” with other Archaia writers (moderated by Archaia EiC Stephen Christy). It was a fun time shooting the breeze about being a writer in comics and responding to audience questions.
As usual, had a lot of fun catching up with friends and other creators, and generally geeking out watching the cosplayers.
Mumbai Confidential is a creator owned crime-noir comic book series created by Saurav Mohapatra and Vivek Shinde. The “Digital First” issues are available on ComiXology and the print hardcover is due out in April 2013 from Archaia. Please do follow us on Facebook and/or Twitter.
