Dear Comic Art Fan,
Boston Comic Con this past weekend was amazing! It completely exceeded all of my expectations! Jim Lee did many more sketches than I have seen him do at a convention in a long time. Cameron Stewart, JH Williams, and Skottie Young were all besieged with collectors looking for art. Mark Chiarello found an artist during his portfolio reviews that just may become the new DC superstar; that kid better remember us in his Eisner-Award acceptance speech. Adam Miller and Rich Woodall completely sold out of the debut issue of ZombieBomb on the very first day! Overall, the convention completely exceeded my expectations and was a phenomenal success! This past weekend definitely put the convention on the map and cemented Boston as a hub of comic book activity.
Apologies to anyone who got shut out on the giant line on Saturday but the Boston PD wasn't letting anyone in due to concerns of overcrowding. We can't help being so popular. However, we are taking actions to gain more space or, barring that, moving to a new venue. And we promise to add more programming like panels and such.
Huge thanks to all of our guests, artists, vendors, and fans for making it an awesome experience, especially all the CAFers who came out and supported the show. And thanks to Bill Cox for letting me co-opt the newsletter to shill.
See you next week!
