This weekend there’s plenty of comics activity around NYC. Many will be interested in FlameCon, the first ever queen comic-con in NYC, to be held at the Grand Prospect Hall in Brooklyn….
but I will be at EternalCon, which is held at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City Long Island.
This is an old school show in a charmingly quirky setting, with many cartooned types, such as Greg Pak, Larry Hama, Billy Tucci and more. And also a Power Rangers Reunion, and a lot of veteran wrestlers you don’t often see at these kinds of shows.
So fun and laid back is the word.
I’ll be on a Panel at 1 PM in room #1 themed So You Wanna Work In Comics?
Careers in Comics
Saturday, June 13 @ 1pm
Most everyone wants to either draw or write comics books. But there are many more capacities in which one may be involved in the industry we all love. Join us as we hear, first hand, from top industry professionals on ways to break in, what to break in as, and how to stay in! With special guests: Heather Antos (Marvel Comics), Maria Cabardo (DC Comics), Peter Hamboussi (DC Comics), Hunter Gorrison (Valiant Entertainment) and Heidi MacDonald (The Comics Beat).
Here’s another local news story about the show, which doesn’t really mention comics but oh well.
Anyhoo if you’re our on the Island stop by!
