Well, Team Beat is out in force, scurrying around Javits, meeting people we know, discovering stuff we kinda knew about but forgot, and just immersing ourselves in comics culture!
So, here are some pictures from yesterday, taken by yours truly via my cellphone, before the ICV2 Conference convened.
And that was that… except for Abram’s fall preview, where I got to meet some great creators (Dan Mishkin, Frank Cammuso, Deb Aoki), pitched a few ideas to Abrams (Pee Wee’s Playhouse Fun Pack, a comic strip collection), and ate and drank and was merry. Then I schlepped home two bags of books and previews, all quality stuff! (But, alas, no advance copies of Wimpy Kid.)
A nice way to ease into NYCC…
I’ve been writing for The Beat since July of 2010.
I’ve been reading comics since 1974, collecting since 1984, and spreading the graphic novel gospel since 1994.
I’m a bookseller, a librarian, an amateur scholar, a cool uncle, and a comics evangelist.
Ask me anything!
