As crowded as Thursday was at New York Comic Con, Friday is when the show really begins. By mid-afternoon, I was already hearing reports about how this year's show broke all previous attendance records, and will surpass San Diego Comic Con in total attendance numbers. It was packed all day, and yet I manages to get around to more of the show than I did yesterday.
I hit Artist Alley today, and said hi to our friends Jason May (LEGO comics, Robotic Madness) and Sean Wang (Runners), both of whom were busy with commissions and people checking out their tables. I picked up at bunch of books between Artist Alley and the Small Press row today, from Justin Jordan's new Image book Spread to Enrica Jang's House of Montressor to Megan Levens and Jamie Rich's Madame Frankenstein (BTW--I should be interviewing Megan about Madame Frankenstein before the weekend is out).
Oh yeah--in between all that stuff, I had a great conversation with writer Alex De Campi at the Dark Horse booth about the Grindhouse series and her new project, Archie Meets Predator. Keep an ear out for that one soon.
All in all, it was a pretty full day at the show, and I grabbed a bunch more pics to share with you all. Enjoy them in the gallery below, and I'll be checking in again tomorrow!
