Well, not really… but I like making up my own names.
(pardon the flash.)
This coming Sunday (11/11/07) is the Virginia Comicon, held here in Richmond, VA.
I’ll let the press release take over from here. I promise this will be one of the more unusual shows for AdHouse. As a local thang, I’m bringing stuff I normally wouldn’t bring to roadshows. Come and see what I mean!
