Phoenix Comic Con Day One

YouTube Preview Image

The show started yesterday afternoon with a healthy turnout and a real party atmosphere that went well into the night. The Star Wars Cantina was a hit as the hotels joined in on the action (rather than complaining, as is a common response). Here’s a look at some of the people there…

 

Whilce Portacio, who has a killer idea for a new superhero book…

 

Scot Koblish and hius family enterprise

 

Richard Starking who surprised us all with his strip drawn by Dave Sim in the Hero Initiative comic. And who has a new project coming with Boo Cook for Thought Bubble.

 

Raven Gegory with Zenescope, so happy about his Wonderland ongoing comic.

 

Norm Rapmund, a sketching machine!

 

Mike McKone starung into your soul!

 

Bleeding Cool Magazine Preview Issue #0! It exists! Being sold in the wild!

 

Even more of it!
