As a resident of the Pacific Northwest, I love to go to conventions in the Pacific Time Zone. Emerald City, Wondercon, San Diego, you name it, I’ll go to the con. The problem is that they’re all kind of the same, with the same dealers and many of the same guests who also live in my area.
Next month I’ll be in New York on business. Said business happens to coincide with East Coast Comicon, which looks like a delightful chance to conventioneer New York style. With East Coast con guests like the amazing Don McGregor, Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, Denis Kitchen, Simon Bisley, Ann Nocenti, and the legendary Fred Hembeck, this should be an awesomely fun experience and a chance to meet some people whose hands I’ve always wanted to shake.
Hope to see you there!
