It seems each year the NY Comic Con gets bigger and bigger. It will soon be serious competition for the epic San Diego Comic Con. Last year, the games area was HUGE. Of course, it can't compete with San Diego for Hollywood stars and studio participation. If you're a fan of comic art and illustration, though, you're going to love the NY Con.
I'll definitely be there hawking my new DVD "Idiots & Angels", and of course the great Rizzoli book, "Independently Animated: Bill Plympton". So come by and say hello, and get a free Bill Plympton sketch!
