NYCC 2011

In a fit of impulsiveness, me and a buddy cut out of work early to go to New York Comic Con last Friday. No photos as I forgot my camera but I had a good time. I can't believe how big the show has gotten since its inception just a few years ago. Back then, it was about half the size of Wizard World Philly. I think it's probably about 10x larger than that show was now and about 20x larger than when it started. It takes up just about the entire Javits Center, which is ginormous. They have a whole section dedicated to Artist Alley and the rest is dealers and exhibitors. Then there's the game room and autograph room. And the panel rooms.

We were only there for a bit but it was worth it. I picked up a sketchbook from Christina Strain and Adrian Alphona, a TARDIS lunchbox, a GL figure I had been looking for, a GL Ring for my daughter and some other odds and ends. And I saw Felicia Day. Who is gorgeous. And awesome.

I'm definitely going next year. Probably on Friday again as there are less people there than on Saturday, which is usually a madhouse but now is probably exceedingly crazy. And I'll take photos. And get more stuff signed. Or something. Maybe even dress up. Who knows?
