Boston Comic Con 2011 Report

Boston Comic Con 2011 was an unparalleled success!! With an enormous guest list and a new location it was a sink-or-swim moment for the growing convention. Thankfully, they came through and saw a 50% increase in attendance from the previous year and have received rave reviews from guests, fans, and retailers alike. The move to the Hynes Convention Center proved to be an invaluable decision as the venue is far more suited to the convention’s needs than previous sites and its central location in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay made access to food, drink, lodgings, and public transportation much easier.

A flurry of activity went on inside the Hynes that weekend between sketches drawn, comics signed, cosplay photographed, and panel questions asked. Highlights include:

Word is the “Women in Comics” panel held a fiesty debate about gender issues in the comics industry between panelists Stephanie Buscema, Allison Sohn, Ming Doyle (pictured at left), Sara Richard, and Marsha Cooke.

Another fun panel was Frank Cho’s “How to Draw Like a Bad-Ass” in which he solicited ideas from the audience and then raffled off tickets to win the piece drawn. Ultimately he drew a picture of the Avengers’ Tigra fighting off a horde of ninja on a subway train.

The biggest announcement of the convention was the unveiling of Teenage Satan, a multimedia enterprise created by Stephanie Buscema, Marsha Cooke, and Candis Cooke. It’s a webcomic, app, and video game all in one. They also held a swanky after-hours party with burlesque performances provided by the Boston Babydolls which were both titillating and haunting. Check out TeenageSatan.com for more information!

This year’s costume contest was big hit with cosplayers breaking out their best capes and masks. The winner was a B.A. Baracus who pitied the fool who broke character. Another standout was the giant, working mecha suit built by a team of MIT students.

Tim Sale’s birthday was on the Sunday of the convention and he was surprised at his panel with a cake provided by the Riot Grrls.

DC Comics Editorial Director Mark Chiarello and Legendary Comics Editor-in-Chief Bob Schreck were both on-hand to review artists portfolio and give advice and tips to the aspiring comic book creators of tomorrow.

Golden Age legend Joe Kubert was only scheduled to appear Sunday but decided to make a surprise appearance on Saturday to the delight of fans and organizers alike. He represented the Kubert School which is the finest institution teaching the craft of creating comics.

Several of the big name artists were much in demand for sketches and signatures including J. Scott Campbell, Frank Quitely, Arthur Adams, Dave Johnson, Matt Wagner, Tony Harris, and more. Sadly, this convention marked the last that superstar artist Adam Hughes will take a sketch request list as he found one of the three he finished in Boston already being sold on ebay mere hours after the show ended. In the future he will auction off sketch requests on ebay beforehand, one per each day of the convention he’s attending.

Finally Boston Comic Con has announced the dates of next year’s show will be April 21-22, 2012! After such a phenomenal convention this year they are also happy to say that they will be returning once again to the Hynes Convention Center! Some big name guests are already lined up and will be announced in the months to come. Follow their website (www.bostoncomiccon.com) as well as the Facebook page and Twitter feed to stay up-to-date on the latest information as it is released! RSVP on Facebook!

Win an Adam Hughes Sketch at Boston Comic Con 2011

Comments Off

Up for auction is the opportunity to get an original, one of a kind convention sketch from comic artist Adam Hughes at Boston Comic Con!

Click here to bid!! (Auction ends on Apr 26, 2011 15:17:02 PDT)

Please read the auction details carefully. Much of the information gets recycled from each show, but there are some new rules and requests listed below.

As many collectors  and fans know, Adam is renowned for his cover art on such books as Catwoman and Wonder Woman, as well as limited run covers for such titles as Power Girl, the Legion of Super Heroes, Joss Whedon’s Serenity and assorted Star Wars projects, to name but a few. His designs for Sideshow Collectibles Marvel Comiquette Statues as well as DC Direct’s Women of the DCU busts and Covergirls statue series are much sought after and enjoyed. This auction is YOUR chance to have one of Adam’s pieces added to your collection, and not just any piece. The artwork you win will be a fully rendered sketch of the character of your choice. The images attached to this auction are an example of the quality of work that the winner can expect to receive; each of those pieces was drawn for winners of past auctions for guaranteed convention sketches!

To participate in this auction, you must meet the following criteria: the artwork must be collected from Adam in person by the winner at the upcoming Boston Comic Con. The dates of the convention are April 30th and May 1st.. You must be an attendee at the show, and be able to provide photo ID proving you are the same individual that won this auction. No one else will be allowed to pick up this artwork for you; so please if you do not plan on being at the Boston Comic Con, do not bid. We cannot make exceptions. You must be able to pay in full via paypal at the close of this auction or make arrangements to pay in cash at the opening of the show. Failure to do so will result in a second chance offer being sent out to the next highest bidder.

The following restrictions will also apply to this auction: Your request may be of a single character of your choosing. Adam reserves the right to add any complimentary characters that he may feel completes the piece of artwork. We humbly ask that you limit your input to the character request, and which of the costumes associated with the character you would like. Please fell free to request a “feeling” for your piece if you would like to; for example, do you want it humorous, or sexy; or featuring a style Adam is known for drawing, like art nouveau or classic pin-up styles. Requests involving specific poses, or editorializing the content of the sketch tend to limit Adam’s creativity, so we kindly ask that you refrain from such specifications.Your artwork will be completed in gray-scale marker as all of Adam’s convention sketches are, with painted highlights added as Adam deems it necessary. The examples included with this auction may look like color was used; Adam achieved this effect using a combination or warm and cool gray tones markers. The artwork will be 11 by 14 inches, and all materials used are archival in quality.  No lewd requests will be accepted, nor any content deemed to be offensive. If you ask for something that is either of these, we will politely ask you for a second choice for the subject of your sketch.

Your artwork will be completed either prior to, or at Boston Comic Con, unless other arrangements are made. For example; if you only plan on attending on Saturday, we will try and make sure that your piece is completed and ready for you to pick up on that day.  Something to keep in mind about this event: Adam’s time is extremely restricted. He has panels and signings to attend outside of his booth, which eat up a good amount of what would otherwise be considered his sketching time. Should these time consuming events prevent Adam from completing your sketch by the end of the convention, your sketch will be completed from his studio at home, and mailed to you at our expense. Adam or myself will be in touch with you prior to the convention to talk about your sketch request.  However, if you neglect to check in with us at the show and collect your sketch, you will forfeit it. We will not be responsible for shipping unclaimed artwork at the end of the show, and as stated earlier, the art MUST be picked up by the auction winner; no substitutions will be allowed.

WonderCon 2011 Report

WonderCon’s 25th anniversary took place last weekend, April 1st-3rd at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. As an attendee for many years, I was shocked to see how crowded the show was for the duration of the show. With Marvel making their first appearance at the show, as well as mainstays such as DC Comics, Image, and Aspen, the show definitely had a strong comic vibe. However, more than most years, especially with some of the most anticipated comic adapted movies coming out this summer, Wondercon also emphasized their entertainment presence. With Green Lantern cast members Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively signing at the DC booth, to fan photo ops of Henry Cavill (newly cast as Superman in Zach Snyder’s next project), Luke Evans, and Isabel Lucas for the new Immortals movie, and Lily Collins, Paul Bettany and Cam Gigandet promoting Priest, along with a surprise appearance from Brandon Routh joining costar Sam Huntington for Dylan Dog, this WonderCon almost felt like a pre San Diego Comic Con show. While it was definitely awesome to see the stars promoting their films, I do hope that Wonder Con can still retain it’s own identity and not turn into a San Diego Comic Con part 2. And now, onto the photos!

ECCC 2011 Con Report

March 4th-6th marked the first time ever in it’s 9 year history that Emerald City Comic Con kicked off on a Friday. Although it was my first time at this show, I’ve been told wonderful things, about the myriad of artists that flooded artist alley, the mobs of fans trying to meet creators, and how this show was truly a “comic centric” type of con, and not bombarded with Hollywood studios. I am happy to report that all of those things were true. With one of the biggest artist alley’s I’ve seen, along with truly knowledgeable fans who lined up for commissions and autographs, Emerald City Comic Con is one of the best shows I’ve attended. It also doesn’t hurt that Seattle had gorgeous weather that weekend, and had plenty of great restaurants within walking distance to the convention center. Here’s a few photos from the show:

Welcome to ECCC!
