What I love most about small, 1-day comic-cons is the community aspect to it, and the fact that it’s usually comic-centric in nature. Comic-Con is a bit of a misnomer these days, as they are often propped up by pop culture attractions outside of the comic art medium. I’m not opposed to all of that, but it’s nice to see the focus back to where most of that pop culture stuff originated: comic books. But I digress. This was an excellent show, thanks to the fine folks at Clearwater Public Library for putting on the event and having me as a guest. I met some amazing talent there, caught up with friends and colleagues, drew a few things for old and new fans, and sold a slew of books. Pretty much a perfect comic-con experience!
