New York Comic Con!

FINALLY, here, at the 11th hour: my New York Comic Con post! I’m sitting in a hotel in New York in the wee hours of the morning as I type this.  I’ve been spending every waking moment on a couple projects I can’t announce yet, so I simply hadn’t had time to do this post. But better late than never, right?

This year I am a Featured Guest at New York Comic Con and I will be at Artist Alley Booth D9 all 4 days! Click here to add me to your show planner. The New York Comic Con show planner is really nifty, by the way.

I’m really excited to meet lots of east coast fans this weekend, as well as many fellow creators! So much of the comics industry is working remotely, and now socializing remotely via Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, etc. A large national-scale comics show like New York Comic Con offers a unique opportunity to see colleagues and industry friends face-to-face. Some fellow pros I’m looking forward to saying hello to include Josh Elder, Dean Trippe, Rachel Deering, Marguerite Bennett, Greg Pak, Josh AdamsNeil KleidSean Von Gorman, Amy ChuJim Chadwick, Tom Brennan and probably more that my sleep deprived brain is not recalling right now! Oh, also my friend Harry Knowles is here for his first NYCC this year. If he doesn’t drop by my table, he’ll never hear the end of it. Just saying, Harry.

I’m also really excited to see all the amazing cosplays that are a fixture at comic conventions of this scale. As usual, I’ll be taking photos of any cosplayer who is willing to pose, and posting them in real time on my Facebook page. That is, assuming I can get a phone signal this year! Cross your fingers for me!

I’ve got several promotions going on for New York Comic Con. First, show me that you follow me on twitter or like my facebook page, and you will get your choice of a free convention exclusive signed Disco Nightwing mini-print or a Batman button! I brought as many of these as I could fit into my luggage, so hopefully I won’t run out but dropping by to get yours earlier rather than later may not be a bad idea!

At big comics conventions, I like to do something a little extra for fans who follow my work. Because con food is expensive and I know a lot of my fans are here on a budget, I’ll have granola bars available at my table for those who know how to ask for them. That’s right – free, healthy snacks! And definitely NOT engineered by the Reach or Lexcorp to pacify the population. (While supplies last.)

On Saturday at 7:30pm EST I will be holding a Young Justice cosplay & fan meet-up! So come join me and fellow fans for a casual meet-up of cosplayers and fans of Young Justice at New York Comic Con! Greg Weisman and I are now holding these at every convention he or I attend! We may not have a panel at NYCC, but Young Justice fandom is alive and well and we want you guys to know we appreciate you!

I will be doing commission sketches during New York Comic Con, but I expect my sketch list to fill up FAST, so if you’re hoping to get a sketch from me, try to stop by my Artist Alley booth as early as possible. Here are my New York Comic Con Sketch Rates:

$80 per Character

+$40 each additional Character

$50 Head Sketches

I will also have all of my prints available during New York Comic Con, at the usual reduced convention price of $20 each or 3 for $50 for 11″x17″ color prints and $5 each for 8.5″x11″ black and white prints. Something for everyone! Here is an overview of my prints for those new to my blog:

And just to cover a few other questions I keep getting on twitter:

  • Autographs are always free and I’ll sign anything you bring me. (Check out my guide to asking for signatures and drawings at conventions!)
  • I’m happy to do Interviews any day but Sunday, but the earlier you can drop by, the better!
  • I have a very limited supply of Young Justice TPB‘s. Come by early if you were wanting one. Sorry, no comic books with me this year.
  • I still don’t have any news on Young Justice. But you should pre-order the video game!

I think that about wraps up my New York Comic Con blog post. Whew! I really am looking forward to meeting lots of fans over the next four days! Please, come say Hello! Artist Alley booth D9! See you there!
