Topic: Comic Cons
Brent Frankenhoff, Editor of Comics Buyer's Guide, tells me that he will be co-hosting the CBG Booth at the 2009 SDCC / CCI Comic Con at booth #1419 and invites YOU to stop in during the convention!
Besides editing the monthly magazine, Brent also produces an annual price guide, and administrates the CBGxtra web site. Plus he has a lot of knowledge on comics and the industry itself, as he has worked at CBG for more than sixteen years!
When I asked what they will be displaying at the Con, Brent told me "We'll have the current issue for sale, along with books and DVDs. A preview of Tony Isabella's upcoming '1000 Comics You Must Read' will also be there for folks to peruse and preorder".
Wondering if Brent would be on any programs or panels this year, Brent went on to say "I won't be on any panels, but CBG Editor Maggie Thompson should be on the Impact University panel. Impact is a book imprint of our parent company, F+W Media, that produces dozens of "how to" books on writing and drawing for comics and other media".
Brent also suggested that if you aren't aware of his 'Oh, So?' forum online, you are welcome to check out http://www.cbgxtra.com for updates of what they will be doing as they get closer to show time.
BTW, I have been a subscriber to CBG for many years! It is one of the few publications on comics that I have kept a hard copy subscription to year in and year out, as I like having the printed format in my hands to read.
Anyways, when you are at the San Diego Comic Con International later on this month, mark on your program map the CBG Booth #1419 so you can meet Brent Frankenhoff as well as check out all the goodies on display there!
Please Note: Days and Times of programs / panels / doors opening etc. are subject to change at any convention, so double check when you get there! There is a daily updated schedule that is available onsite!
