Last year was the inaugural “Special Edition New York Comicon”, also known as #SENYC or SE:NYC), and I attended both days (thanks to CAG’s very own Chris Buckner and Alex Rivera for helping out there!). I was very happy with the curated collection of creators and retailers at the event, and walking the show floor allowed me to connect with creators such as Jeff McComsey, Dirk Manning, Joven Tolentino, Brian Visaggio, Scott Bachmann. One especially fabulous networking boost was Buddy Scalera’s Creator Connection panel, which allowed me to meet Jeff Rider, J. Barker, Steven Petrivelli, and Johnny C.
The amazing thing about conventions is a combination of making great purchases and showing the comic book sequential art that I’ve been working on. When anybody puts their eyes on my work, I am thankful and feel like I’m making meaninful steps in my comic book artist career.
Thanks Special Edition New York Comicon, and I look forward to your offerings this year as well!
