First off, the show had an incredible mix of creators; veterans, current stars and up and comers. The entire guest list was made up of not only talented but friendly and kind people. I didn’t hear one person complain that a creator was rude to them.
Next were the vendors! There was something for everyone whether it was comics or toys and prices ranged from incredibly affordable to ‘need a credit card to get that’. Brian and I both walked out with a bunch of stuff AND still had some money left over. That makes our wives happy.
The venue was a great space. The Hynes Convention Center is spacious, has easy to get to bathrooms and is attached to a great and fairly affordable food court. Despite the incredibly large turnout, there was still room to move between the aisles and get whatever you needed. The space between the aisles made it easy to spend quality time with creators or just dig in comfort for that certain treasure.
And the fact that both the Bruins and Red Sox lost their games mere miles away from us made the vibe in Boston that much better.
So thanks you again for an incredible day and a great kick off to the Secret Identity Con Tour 2012! Unfortunately every upcoming show has to measure up to this.
