Aaaaaand this is the reason that vendors should have to wait until general admission to get in and stop blocking all those who purchased early admission.
Now I know its their prerogative to sell whatever but when they stand in line an hour before anyone is able to enter and early entry is finally allowed and you reach someone you want to see and see 10 vendors standing in line already....
And this is also another reason why it is so damn hard to get anybody to do anything at shows or even show up or even be able to afford something ie. Adam Hughes, eBas, etc.

Wasn't looking to get a sketch from Jim because I knew he would take some time. I just passed on my books to get signed and got a sketch from Holly. On Saturday, got there at 930 to get in line and there were people already in line. So I bypass because, I had other stuff planned to attend. On Sunday, again got there at 9:00 to watch some of the zombies come in and went inside at 925, and there were vendors in line. I stood for a few moments, but left because I wanted to attend quick sketch. I love Jim and Holly but the vendors should try to get the sketches done on Thursday night, or wait for the general openings.I will attend again because I go mostly for the enjoyment of the friends I made and the comics. Also it is big enough to get some great talent but small enough that you do get to spend some moments talking to the talent and socializing with them at the evening events.From: "wildstorm3@..." <wildstorm3@...>

Really enjoyed the show. Got a Talon commission by Eddy Barrows (very cool guy), a Robins piece from McDaniel and a Joker and a Harley from Balent.
My only gripe is with the 3-day tickets and early entry. What is the point of getting an early entry to be one of the first in line to your favorite person when after they let you in you get to that person and there are vendors already in line. This happened to me Saturday and Sunday. I was second in line at early entrance. I went to get a sketch by Balent (because I had a 1pm appointment to get my Batman Tattoo). I get to Balent's line and there were 10 vendors already in line not only to get sketches (which will probably be sold) but also had 30-40 books to be signed (again to be sold probably). This also happened Sunday. It takes about 20-30 minutes to get a sketch from Balent (he's just so damn good). I don't think vendors should be able to get in line before all those who bought tickets to enter a 1/2 hour early. I believe they should have to wait fr general admission to be able to get in line. I mean if a vendor can get really early entrance to a line for somebody than next year I am going to get a vendor spot so I can get in line before everyone else. I eventually got what I wanted from Balent at the end of Sunday but had to miss out on meeting some others due to there being vendors in the lines before early admission.
