NY Comic Con

I went to the NY Comic Con last weekend, Friday through Sunday. I had a good time, even though it was packed and a little bit insane. According to Publishers Weekly:

Some 20,000 people showed up on Saturday for a venue that could hold only 10,000 to 15,000 people. And while the official numbers are not yet available, the show organizers estimate that the event may have drawn nearly 30,000 people over the three days.

My photos are here.

I bought a few things, and got autographs from writer Brian K. Vaughan (probably my current favorite comics writer), writer Brian Wood, artist Jae Lee, artist/writer Michael Avon Oeming, artist Rags Morales, and several more less known indie creators. Alas, I wasn't able to get to Bendis for an autograph. Oeming seems like a really nice, humble guy in addition to being a great artist. I bought one of his sketchbooks.

As I work my way through the books I bought, I'll try to post again if anything stands out.
