Comic Fest – A Human-sized Con

We are scheduled to participate in three panels at Comic Fest this weekend with X-MEN:TAS director-producer Larry Houston.  It will be our third appearance there, and we wanted to give you a sense of why we continue to go back.  While WonderCon last month was exciting in its size and scope (70,000 people, 1700 at our X-MEN:TAS panel), Comic Fest is low-key.  It’s like visiting a favorite small town instead of a big city.  While the biggest Cons have expanded into every corner of popular culture, Comic Fest remains comics-focused.  The people are very comics-knowledgeable.  We meet friends from way back.  (Scott Shaw, who designed the Fest poster below was my office-mate at Hanna-Barbera in 1986.)  The location is like a vacation spot, not a trade show.  And the founders go back to the beginning of the Con movement, so they choose guests wisely.  So join us if you can — we’ll have a signing table and stacks of books.  See you there.
