Better late than never... I've been out of town since Boston ComicCon and I am just getting all of my thoughts together. The level of talent in attendance this year was incredible. I had a blast. It was packed, but a good percentage of fans were there for cosplay and to shop, so there was plenty of time/space to chat with artists/writers one on one.
The Highlight Rundown
BRAND NEW NOSTALGIA - 3 BNN members were in attendance. Joe Dellagatta, who I first met last year at Boston ComicCon and who did an awesome commission for my business card (hope to get him on another piece for me soon.) Andrew Maclean has a new comic through a successful kickstarter out called MEATSPACE. Definitely check out the first issue here. Logan Faerber is also an amazing talent and fellow Bostonian. All three are great guys and I had a fun time talking with them. Make sure to check out their work as well as the other members of BNN!
Kevin Church/ TJ Kirsch - These two guys have a great thing going over at Agreeable Comics. I bumped into their table and remembered seeing their comic SHE DIED IN TERREBONNE on a list of top noir comics. I picked up the first edition trade and I am very impressed - awesome story and the production is solid. You can read it for free here but I also highly recommend you pick up a copy.
Eric Canete - Last but certainly not least, I picked up CHOCOLATE, one of Eric's art books. Eric is an amazing artist and I was blown away by his work (almost enough to pick up his $100 art book if the wife wouldn't have killed me!)
Those were my highlights. There were so many excellent creators in attendance and I know I missed a lot (probably even forgetting to add some that I did meet). But it was a great con and I can't wait to attend next year.
