Topic: Comic Cons
We are right in the midst of a long Comic Con Season... And I am blogging about another one day show that is happening this time in the Pacific Northwest this upcoming weekend!
Here are the details as known:
Date: Saturday, May 30, 2009
General Admission is $5.00
Children 10 and under free with paying Adult
Free Gift Bag for the first 100 paid attendees!
This is only the 3rd Annual Spokane ComiCon, so I have not been to this one before.
However, I do have four Facebook Friends that are guests / exhibitors at this Con. They are:
Steve Lieber's works have been published by DC Comics, Marvel, Dark Horse, Image, Carus Publishing, among others. However he is currently best known as the artist of the graphic novel 'Whiteout', which is a film that Warner Brothers is releasing in 2009 starring Kate Beckinsale.
Paul Guinan is best known as the co-creator of 'Chronos', a monthly title published by DC Comics, with writer John Francis Moore. Paul also pencilled eleven issues of the series. Currently Paul is working on the Sci-fi graphic novel 'Heart Breakers'.
Lars Brown will be selling copies of the two volumes of his graphic novel 'North World'. He will also be selling original art and taking commissions at this Con.
So what else is at this Con besides those four guests? Well... The amount of dealer tables has doubled to 53 tables set up. And for the first time there will be full day programming... I noticed that Gabe Strine of 'Brinkerhoff' will be on a panel about 'Webcomics'.
Also, per the Con's press release... "Returning are $1 raffle prizes, freebie table, and the ever popular costume contest at 4pm. There will be prizes for best adult and child costumes donated by The Comic Book shop on Division. Kids will get to meet Darth Vader and other Star Wars characters of the 501st Legion that will be on site taking complimentary photos".
Hope all of the above and YOU, if you can make, have sum fun at this Comic Con and Pop Culture Show! BTW, if YOU are an comics creator / exhibitor at this show, please let me know so I can add your name to this blog post!
