Welcome to the latest episode of ComicsAlliance Presents “Kate or Die,” a series of exclusive comic strips created by one of our favorite cartoonists, Kate Leth! In this episode, Kate assuages your fears that your’e being creepy when approaching your
favorite comic book creators at conventions. Don’t worry, you’re not!

You’re the reason I get brought to these shows, yo!
It’s a scary thing, but don’t let it keep you from having a nice moment. It won’t always be perfect and not every creator (or every fan) will be awesome, but it’s worth the risk.

Things I need to remember the next time I’m crossing the street behind a famous voice actor after a show.
