Victor Gorelick, Craig Yoe, Dan Parent, and Fernando Ruiz appear at Strand Book Store on Thursday November 7 from 7:00PM – 8:00PM!
From the same folks who brought you The Art of Betty and Veronica last year, comes another fascinating look at the world of Archie Comics! The characters of Archie, Betty, Veronica and their friends have been icons of the American cultural world for more than half a century. Now, The Art of Archie: The Covers presents an overview of the full history of Archie with gorgeous illustrations of full-color artwork by fan-favorite artists Dan DeCarlo, Harry Lucey, Bob Montana, Dan Parent and many more. To celebrate the release of this retrospective, a special panel of artists and experts will be joining us here at the Strand!
Victor Gorelick is the co-president of Archie Comics, and a fifty-five year veteran of the comics industry. He’ll be joined by Eisner-award winning editor and comic book historian Craig Yoe, and artists Dan Parent and Fernando Ruiz. Dan Parent mentored under the legendary Dan DeCarlo and has a long list of Archie credits from Archie Meets KISS to the creation of Kevin Keller, Riverdale’s first gay teen. Fernando Ruiz’s work is featured in the critically hailed Life with Archie series, and is an instructor at the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art.
Visit us in the rare book room to hear what these experts have to say about over seven decades of the world of Archie! Dan and Fernando will sign books—and do exclusive, personal sketches!

Known for bringing more diversity and inclusion to Riverdale than ever before, Dan Parent has been making Archie comics since 1987.

Greetings, Comics Fans!
This is Brett at the VA Comicon. We are pleased to announce the return of the 2-Day VA Comicon on Nov 23-24, 2013 in a BIG way! We have partnered with Painted Visions Comics to bring the largest comic book show EVER in Virginia (10 times the size of our 1-day shows!) to the Richmond International Raceway Complex (Where they have the NASCAR races!), with FREE parking for everyone.
This will be a COMIC BOOK show, catering specifically to the fans who actually COLLECT comic books. ALL of our vendors sell comic books (only 12 vendor spaces left!), and ALL of our guests work in the industry. Spread out over 36,000+ square feet, each vendor will have a full 10×10’ booth to showcase the finest in new and vintage comic book collectibles.
Our guest of honor at the show is Rob Liefeld, the creator of X-Force, which sold more copies of the same comic than any other comic book ever. Rob is also the creator of DEADPOOL. Joining him will be Wolverine co-creator Herb Trimpe, Kevin Keller creator Dan Parent, Atomic Robo creator Brian Clevinger, He-Man artist Pop Mhan, GI Joe artist SL Gallant, FX’s Archer’s Character Designer Sam Ellis, Top Cow President Matt Hawkins, and the list goes on and on!
We will also have the #1 worldwide expert on vintage comics, Previous CGC president, and current head buyer for Heritage Auctions, Mr. Steve Borock to answer your questions about investing in comic books, and we will have several lectures about investment level comics.

We are less than 2 miles from I-95 and I-64. Hotels in the area average $65 a night. Flights, train tickets and rental cars are some of the cheapest in the country. There are even RV hookups for $25 on-site! Vendor booths are 10×10 and small press tables are 6’. We will be presenting this show in the round, which means there are no corners or endcaps. This show is going to be amazing. We can’t wait to see you there!
