So it’s almost time for Boston Comic Con. We will be there Saturday and Sunday. I’m going down with the wife and child as well. Aside from the Dubai Comic Con, I have never gone to one of these before, so I’m pretty excited.
I went through the list of artists who are going to be there an compiled a list of the comics that I wanted to bring to try and get signed. There are over 100 comics that I could take to get signed, but I tried to narrow it down some. I didn’t want to be an annoying guy in line with a whole bunch of comics for a guy to sign, so at first I limited myself to 5 per artist, as there are many people I would like to see. That still left me with over 80, which when boarded and bagged weigh a good amount. I will be already carrying a change of clothes and other things in my bag, and I want to have room for when/if I buy things.
And I know that I am going to want to buy things. Especially sketches from the artists.
Neal Adams. Jimmy Palmiotti (who inked a lot of 2099 issues, so you know I have to see him). Alex Saviuk. Geof Isherwood. Paul Ryan. Mark Brooks. Mark Texeira. Mark Waid. Frank Tieri. Jorge Molina. Arthur Suydam (and I got some old trading cards by this guy too, so I’ll bring some of them for everyone). Carlos Pacheco.
So I got rid of some other ones too. I want to get as many different peoples’ signatures as possible, but there are some people who I really want. Should I bring more of there stuff in case they will sign it? There is the artist of a certain 12 issue mini-series that I have and I would love to have all 12 of those issues signed. I think I will just book-end it, and get 1 and 12.
I don’t think I am going to actually dress up as anything, but we will see. I’ll be sure to let you know if that changes. I will be giving away things to anyone who comes up to me and mentions this website. So come find me. I’ll leave some details in the next couple days.
