I went to the Boston ComiCon today, which was.. interesting. Luckily I had a buddy to brave the storm with me (thanks Lenny!). The comic con basically involved a large carpeted area with lots of hallways, lots of vendors, and lots of comics and merchandise. At first I wasn't that into it, but then I started roaming around and checking out the booths, and I started having a good time. There was just so much nerdy stuff to look at!
So, after perusing through some silver age relics under the gazes of pompous dork- hipsters, I went to go look at some of the featured artists. This was both good and VERY bad. I mean, I don't even want to go into it. However, I met some really cool, talented people. I just wish I had met Mike Allred, creator of the amazing MADMAN comics. I went to sat hi to him and probably make a fool out of myself as well, but he was being interviewed by some stupid podcast guy. DAMN IT! Then I came back later, and he was gone.
I'm glad I went anyway. I plan to visit many more ComiCons. Hopefully I'll get to the New York one next.
I'll have some actual art up soon
