The First annual New York Comic-Con is invading the Javits Center this weekend, and I’ll be there along with selected other Alternative Comics artists: man_size, bertozzi, Sam Henderson, Jon Lewis, Karen Sneider, Bishakh Som, Sara Varon, Gabrielle Bell, etc. In fact, because publisher indymag can’t make it, I’ll be running the Alternative Comics booth, pimping not just my own stuff but the whole line.
I don’t know what to expect from this con, but I infer that they’re trying to ape the San Diego con in terms of mass market appeal. Personally, I DETEST mainstream conventions (which is why I appreciate SPX and MoCCA so muchly). In fact, I’m still meaning to write up a little something on the horror that was the last con I attended, Big Apple, back in November. But I digress.
If anyone is available to help me out at the Alternative booth during the con, in terms of meeting & greeting, handling sales, etc., I’ll make sure it’s worth your while in free merch.
Here’s my design for the giant (7-1/2 foot x 10 foot) booth backdrop at the show:
