The summer months can be an incredible time for comic shows, but with only a few weeks to schedule in, many shows fall within days of each other or even on the same weekend. When choosing a con to attend, there are two things you need to seriously look at; the guest list and is it in an easy location to get to AND get out of?
The 'New York Comic Fest' happening in White Plains, New York (at the Westchester County Center, 198 Central Avenue, White Plains, NY) has both of that! The show, happening June 14th boasts an incredible line up and is easy to get to, park and get in and out of.
The Lineup is the lifeblood of any con and this show has got an incredible one. Some of today's biggest stars, yesterdays legends and some incredibly prolific creators fill a roster that seems to be too good to be true but it's not...
Scott Snyder - the number one writer in all of comics, his 'Batman' series has topped the sales chart, received much praise and is an incredibly cool guy!
Mark Waid - one of the best writers to ever write comics, his magic has been featured in the pages of everything.
Dennis O'Neil - when you think Batman and Green Arrow, you should think Dennis. Thanks to his writting, those characters became what they are today.
Jim Steranko - magician, legend and all around visionary, Jim's work is some of the most amazing stuff ever printed.
...and former Secret Identity guests Larry Hama, Paul Levitz, Steve Mannion, Jim Salicrup, Fred Hembeck, Fred Van Lente and Dave Ryan promise to make this show one of the best happening this summer.
And you know who else will be there? Brian and I as well as our good pal Sketch Getter 'B', so please look for us and say hello.
Here, you'll be able to spend some quality time with the creators that you may not be afforded in a bigger show and not worry about parking.
