Clairikine + HX hit ComicInvasion 2022

A black-and-white comic titled "Clairikine + HX do Comic Invasion 2022". In the first panel, Claire is sitting at their table at Comicinvasion wearing a jeans jacket and a shirt that says "Thrice". Someone next to them says "Hi! I'm Claire" and Claire responds "Me too!" In the second panel, Claire and HX are sitting next to each other at their tables. Claire says " 'HX' table - where group projects go to die' and HX says "Ha ha ha. That's going in the autobiographical comic" In the third panel, a visitor tells Claire "I like your shirt! I really like seeing other queer folks who are into rock music." Claire thinks "Well this has made my entire day." The fourth panel has the caption "Vibing with other SPN fans". Claire is standing next to two people, one of which is wearing a shirt with the words "Carry On" against a ring of fire and above a Chevy Impala. Claire is clasping her hands and saying "OMG your shirt!!", with a caption pointing at her saying "on season 14". The fifth panel has the caption "5:30 vibes" and the text "the lights are on, but nobody's home". It shows Claire sitting at their table with eyes of two different sizes, staring into the void. The sixth panel shows Lara (wearing a "Yay Comics!" shirt), HX and Claire sitting around a table with drinks. HX says "We're doing a bit where we see who the first person to draw it is... it's Claire". Claire is looking at a blank sketchbook page with a pen in her hand. The seventh panel shows Claire drawing into the sketchbook while frowning and saying "This right here is why I never finish any of my long-form projects." Lara asks "The spontaneous stuff?" and Claire says "This spontaneous shit."
Two comics panels in black and white. In the first panel, Claire is tabling, and a visitor is pointing at their zines and asking "So tell me, which one is your favorite?" Claire responds "Oh! I love all my children equally." The second panel has the caption "5 minutes later" and shows Claire at her table, thinking "I don't care for Gob"
A four-panel comic in black and white. In the first panel, Claire and Lara are standing around a table that has been placed upside down and only has one leg left on it. Claire says "It's like the sword in the stone!" In the second panel, Lara reaches down to grab the table leg and says "For the honor..." In the third panel, she shouts "...of Grayskull!!" and is holding the table leg up in the air like She-Ra would hold her sword. In the fourth panel, Claire says "Can I put that in a comic" and Lara says "Sure!" as she walks away carrying the table leg.
ComicInvasion 2023 is nigh, so here are some comics chronicling my weekend at CIB22 in the presence of HX and friends! That's kickass festival director Lara demonstrating leadership in action in the final panels.
I have since then finished the television show Supernatural, be sure to ask for my Thoughts About The Finale at my table on May 6 & 7 at the Museum for Communication!
