MOC was great show for FSK. This was our first appearance and we had a very strong showing. We met so many new people that were just wonderful to be with. Saw our comic brethren as well and it was good to see all of them again. We sold a lot of Hotshot books, and a crap load of Prints. We had several contest and giveaways at the conventions. SKETCH BATTLES were a huge success at the convention!We also premiered an updated Hotshot button and the 1st costume button thanks to Mutant Cactus.
Here are pics from the epic sketch battles that started to bring FSK attention at the con
