Topic: Comic Cons
Continuing My Series On Creators that will be at the Comic Con International San Diego 2009, AND whom I think You should make a point to stop and see...
Is Troy Hasbrouck, who wears many 'hats'! Because besides being the Founder & Director of Jester Press, he is also the Founder of Rebel Base Comics and Toys in Charlotte, North Carolina! PLUS, he also writes for the comics that Jester Press publishes, thus qualifying himself as one of the Creators I wanted to point out to you, my Blog Readers!
As you can see from his photo at the top right, Troy is a fan at heart! That photo is from his store during the FCBD (Free Comic Book Day) where some of the guys from the 501st assembled in his store!
As Troy is also a Facebook Friend of mine, I noticed that he doesn't say that much about himself, as he lets his store and comics speak for him. So I'll tell you that his comic book store in Charlotte NC is about to celebrate 15 years in business... And trust me THAT is an accomplishment in this Day & Age!
Oh, and I did say that Troy Hasbrouck AND Jester Press would be there... right? Well, also manning the Jester Press booth will be Rob Porter and Erik Williams! Rob handles their web site and is also a colorist. Erik handles penciling as well as water colors. Stop by and say hi to each of them while You are at the Con!
BTW, if you are not one of the 125,000+ persons that are attending this great comic book & pop culture convention this month, then you must take a look at the Jester Press web site at:
However, if you are attending the San Diego Comic Con International later on this month, then please hi-lite on your program map the area known as 'Small Press Section' so you can meet the guys from Jester Press in person, remember it's at the Small Press P-11 Booth!
Please Note: Days and Times of programs / panels / doors opening etc., are subject to change at any convention, so double check that when you get there! There is a daily updated printed schedule that is available onsite!
