Conventional Wisdom

I love comics strips about the creator’s convention experiences. (The defining genre standard being, of course, Stuart Immonen’s 50 Reasons to Stop Sketching at Conventions. Unfortunately, it seems no longer available.)

This week, German cartoonist Sarah Burrini (Flytrap) is running a series of strips called “The Aftershock!” as part of her Web comic Life Ain’t No Pony Farm, sharing some of her Booth Encounters of the Third Kind at the recent Munich Comics Festival 2009.

It’s riveting stuff, and there’s a very well-translated English version in addition to the original German one. So if you’re reading this, you’ve got no excuse not to give it a look. (Unless you’re reading this without actually understanding a word of what it says, of course, in which case you shall consider yourself excused, for all the good it does you.)

(And, no, that’s not me with the hat; not my kind of brim, thank you very much.)
