New York Comic Con 2012, Part 2 - October 13, 2013

Saturday at New York Comic Con was incredibly busy. I did attend some panels and there will be more on that in another post. In this post I'm mostly going to share pictures that I took while walking around and at the panels. If you ever have the opportunity to come to New York Comic Con, you should!

New York Comic Con 2012, Part 1 - October 12, 2012

I arrived at New York Comic Con 2012 yesterday morning. There were lines snaking here and there in front of the Javits Center. Bigger lines than I'd ever seen. Wow! Inside the Con the set up had been changed as well.  Artist Alley is at the North end of the Javits Center in it own cavernous room. Signing Tables are downstairs making it easy to find them and eliminating the huge lines that used to snake onto the main floor when the signing tables were upstairs. For the Signing Tables, fans bring their own books to sign and memorabilia to be signed. This change may have happened last year, but I had a truncated visit to NY Comic Con 2011 so can't say definitely. The main exhibitor floor has spread into what used to Artist Alley. All in all my initial impression is that New York Comic Con is bigger and better than ever!

Yesterday I concentrated mainly on the literary aspects of the Con. I listened to some panels (which I will do again today). I also met some amazing authors.

Nintendo is at Comic Con with Wii U. I'll be checking that out on Sunday
because my 11 year-old son will be joining me.

I picked up a present for my son. It's a limited edition Squidqueen by the wonderfully talented Ben Templesmith.

Here is Ben adding the green watercolor to the piece, which makes each Squidqueen unique.

Today I hope to spend time viewing the comics portion of Comic Con as well as visiting Artist's Alley again. There are also a few signings I want to try to go to. On Sunday, the kids will be with me so it will be gaming and vendors!

2011 Book Expo America - My Day 2 - Photos

Day 2 of BEA (May 25) was really jam-packed for me. I met a lot of authors, saw a book trailer debut, played with the new KOBO, and had another amazing day. Here are photos of some of the many authors I had the pleasure of meeting. Some of these authors will be visiting The Qwillery over the next few months. Who would you like to see here?
