Jody Culkin is an artist, photographer, and teacher. Thanks to being married to PW comics maven Calvin Reid, she’s also a veteran of many comics and book shows. Camera in hand, she has chronicled the activities and faces of the past seven or eight years of comic cons — her work can often be found in PW Comics Week.
But she also has a hobby.
And when viewed through her lens, a whole new picture emerges. Culkin writes:
I take a lot of pictures at Comic Conventions, and I have become obsessed with these doll/action figures that are everywhere at most mainstream cons. I find them strangely disturbing. This is a fairly random assortment of pictures from the last few years at San Diego Comic-Con and New York Comic-Con, I have many more.
Many more in the link. We say book offer….NOW.
