Editor Hope Nicholson is no stranger to bringing together diverse and talented creators from every corner of the comics industry for humorous and emotional anthologies. Following the success of The Secret Loves of Geek Girls and The Secret Loves of Geeks comes a brand-new anthology of personal stories by writers, artists, cartoonists, and professional geeks around the globe.
Pros and (Comic) Cons explores the mad world of comic conventions and the funny, sad, sweet, embarrassing, and heartfelt stories that go along with them. These true-to-life stories showcase surprise celebrity run-ins, fan encounters that changed creator’s lives, costume malfunctions, and practical advice for both new and experienced convention attendees. Featuring comics and essays by Brian Michael Bendis (The Man of Steel), Greg Pak (The Incredible Hercules), Jenn St-Onge (Nancy Drew), Tim Seeley (Hack + Slash), Kieron Gillen (The Wicked and the Divine), Sina Grace (Iceman), Amy Chu (Green Hornet) and many more, Pros and (Comic) Cons paints a picture of the geek culture life that shapes us, encourages us, and exhausts us every summer.
