New York Comic Con 2011 in photos

To continue on the madness that was NYCC 2011, I present a bunch of pictures that I took at the con and at least one that I did not, but rocks. It is of the lovely Liza James, who was gracious enough to dress up as Ashe and hawk our wares for the weekend.  Onto the pictures!

Our table setup with our new and improved Fables Of The Flying City Banner.

Legendary Pictures had a display, so naturally I had to shoot the Dark Knight.

Writer and founding member of Rat Ronin studios, Kieth Miller.

High Moon, Box 13, and now artist on the AMC Walking Dead Game as well as caffeine freak Steve Ellis.

pretty self explanatory.

The Battle of Blood and Ink crew.  Good looking clouddogs all.

The creation inevitably turns on its creator.  Ashe gives me a noogie.

and finally Liza James as Ashe in her Amperstamian finest.

We all had a blast this year at comiccon and quite honestly I'm looking forward to next year when we will have the physical book in hand for everyone plus a few other fantastic goodies as well.  now if only I could figure out how to get the entire cast there...:)

New York Comic Con '11

This past weekend was New York Comic Con.  The Con has always been big, and has just grown exponentially since it's inception.  To say that it is a bit of a sensory overload would be a gross understatement.  The show itself, with all of its bright colors and big displays, the celebrities and all the fans who dress up in fantastic costumes, is a remarkably fun show. 

Jared and I went to promote The Battle Of Blood And Ink, and it was a resounding success.  Not only did we make some new fans, The phrase of the weekend was, "I can't wait to read this", but we were approached by several fans of the podcast!  What a great treat that was.  Not wanting to go to the con empty handed, we prepared a special Fables Of The Flying City mini comic, and people loved it. I'll be posting up the cover here in a bit, plus we will have the entire comic available for reading and download at I will of course announce when it goes live.  That will be followed by 5 more Fables Of The Flying City mini comics, which will be posted once a month until the release of the graphic novel.  Now, the con didn't inspire this, but it sure as hell motivated us to get these lead ins up and running. 

My favorite part of the con was the sketches.  I love meeting people, talking with them about comics, and doing a piece of art that is just for them.  I did a few Ashe sketches this weekend, but the ones that really stick in my mind are the Batman punching the shark I did and a Spider-man and Maryjane piece.  I've got a few here for you to look at as well!

  The Nightwing is for my friend Adrienne who absolutely loves Dick Grayson, almost to creepy stalker levels if he were flesh and blood.  The robot pinup is something I've been doing since the first New York Comic Con.  I just like drawing robots.

Overall this NYCC was a tremendous success!  More pictures and artwork to come over the next few days so keep your eyes peeled!
