Recap: Khem Comic Fest

Tuesday February 23, 2016 11:21:pm

Hello everyone! Back from a busy two weeks of offline work and here to share with you some of the awesomeness of that time. Before we get started, however, I would like to first explain to you my new blog format. Each Monday I will be giving a recap of what's awesome with Outpouring the previous week. On Wednesdays, I'll be sharing all things roleplay, including Outpouring roleplay moments from past and present. Finally, on Fridays, I will be continuing one of the many series I began this year, including: Charging Forward and Where are they now?

Today I'll be recapping Khem Con from this past Saturday and all of the new releases and announcements we had to offer at the show.

This past Saturday, Steve Lisefski, Kent Willis and I headed up to Khem Con for our first show of the new convention season. None of us had ever done this show before and being that it was only its second year we weren't quite sure what to expect. Fortunately, it turned out to be even better then we thought it would be. Nassed Gifted and PBS media did a great job putting together a strong guest list and DJ Peace did a great job emceeing the event. They did their best to make sure that each of their guests and vendors had a great show, right down to providing food and water for all of us. The fans turned out ready to participate and check out what was new in their area. Newark is quickly proving to be a great city for comics as their fan show great support for its events. We met several of our amazing fans that day and continued to make even more great new fans throughout the day.

We had tons of incredible, new stuff to greet our fans with, including: a new table design, poster line, comic releases and special news. Bellow you can take a look at our new set up which we will continue to tweak throughout the season.

The new poster line featured amazing artwork from several of our top lines and artists. David Coates, AJ Fulcher, David Fox, Rusty Gilligan, Dan Gorman, Steve Leon, Steve Lisefski, Joe Martino, John Orlando, Jay Taylor, and Kent Willis. The lines they featured included: Doc Behemoth, Freedom Fighter, Inheritance, Mac and Trouble, Major Nature, Outpouring Special Edition Series, Psychosis, Vigilant and VODA. The big headliners for the day were not the new prints, it was actually three different lines we introduced at the show. Freedom Fighter and Psychosis both made their debut at the Outpouring Comics table. We have been building up to this moment for more then a month now as these two lines both continued to prove their value each day. They both had impressive runs on as they were featured in the 10 hottest titles for over a week. Michael Heitkemper/AJ Fulcher (Freedom Fighter) and Adam Atkinson/David Coates (Psychosis) have worked really hard along with our team to make a successful debut. Pick up your copies of these great titles from our Storenvy today:

The other line that we featured that day was Doodled. We announced its addition to the Outpouring library live from the show and gave a sneak peak at some of the awesome sketches Kaleb Temple has in store for us.

Just about wrapped up for the show but I want to give one more quick shout out to They took the time to do a very hilarious interview with Steve Lisefski, Kent Willis and myself which will be launching on our social media later this week. Be sure to be on the lookout for it later this week!

All in all, Khem Con was a great kickoff to our 2016 convention season and is a show we will be attending again in the future. We continue to look forward to many great things from Doodled, Freedom Fighter and Psychosis in addition to all of the great upcoming shows this year.

Next up? Big Apple Con, March 5th!
