It's been a few years since I went to a Comic Con - any comic con. I'm one of those people that scrape together admission, then get maybe one or two pencil sketches for $20 or $40. $250 for a single sketch is unthinkable. While I drool over black and white comic art, I can't afford the $80 to maybe over $100 for a single comic page. Original art for $5K? If you're trying to sell that at a comic book convention, I think you're in the wrong place to begin with. Secondly, I wonder if you understand your audience. My pull list shrank considerably when the price climbed to $2.99, then $3.99. I would think that eBay or online sales for original $5K art would be a better place than a comic convention. The point of a comic con, as I understand it, is a meet 'n' greet. I'll bring something for an autograph, along with a camera for a picture, and maybe enough to get a pencil sketch. I don't go to a comic book convention to spend a lot of money. I go to meet the artists and writers I enjoy reading. That's what going to a comic con is for me. If that's not your idea of a comic book convention. Maybe I'm the only one living payday to payday, I'm sure the Dormans are, too; but their payday is a whole lot different than mine is.
