Boston Comic Con 2008

Hi, it's me!

Well I got back from Boston's new Mini Comic Con and it was a pretty good show overall.

Rusty and I got there a little after 10:00 am and it was crowded.

I saw some guys from the Inkwell, Mark McKenna, Bob Almond, Scott Ambrusion, Norman Lee (Who was there with what I thought was a penthouse Pet of the month, You dog Norman ;-) ).

Cesar Feliciano was there with Kris Carter, Bob Shaw (Serendipity Sales art rep.) along with Peter Laird, Paul Ryan and Mike Lilly and many others.

But the reason I really likes it was Bernie Wrightson, Who is perhaps the one standout artist of my comics reading life.

Bernie was there with Liz, and a bust of Frankenstein, modeled after his drawings. He was very Gracious, and a Friend of mine bought a couple of his drawings for $2,000.00. Wow, I thought Neal Adams got a lot.

I introduced myself, told him about the Inkwell awards and asked if he would do a cover for the Secret Invasion book, He at once said he would (what a guy), so I grabbed Bob Almond and a book, and Bob sealed the deal.

His art has always been number one in my book, and if you don't have it already, buy the newer Frankenstein volume. It reproduces his art more faithfully then the earlier edition, and is a must have.

Anyway, I could go on, but he is just to good an artist and you guys know that already.

Peter Laird, Local Boy does good, was there as well and he looks great.

Scott Ambrusion was there all in his Pirates outfit, he actually looked at home in it.

Cesar and Kris were there doing sketches and hawking there wares. I hope they made a ton.

Mark McKenna and Norman Lee were there set up next to Wrightson and Paul Ryan. Paul was there with his Phantom art. I really like Paul's work.

Mark had some Wicked cool inks he brought, and his work is just Stellar.

Norman is getting to be quit a penciller, and it would not surprise me to see him pencilling at some date in the future.

Brian Kong was there and is a super illustrator. He even offered up an Invasion cover for the Inkwell awards, along with Norman Lee, Paul Ryan, Peter Laird, Hannibal King and A few others. So they get a Tip of the Hat as well for that.

There was Larry Harrison, an advertiser of the Inkwell Awards, so if your ever in Salem, Mass or Medford, Mass you can visit one of his comic and gaming superstores. And Larry is actually one of the nicest guys I know.

The show was bustling, and I love the fact that it is close.

Now on to the Pictures.
