I've uploaded a bunch of photos to my Facebook page here, and there's some more great ones available via the Halcon Twitter feed here. Meantime, a few highlights of the event were...
Antiquitas Lost", the new book by Robert Louis Smith and illustrator Geof Isherwood (cover artist of Brutal Blade of Bruno the Bandit vol. 2), and got to meet both creators and have them sign the book. At first glance, the art for this book is easily on par with Wrightson's work on "Frankenstein", and that impression was reinforced by getting the chance to see some of the originals. Amazing stuff, and I'm looking forward to digging into this book.
Superhero Girl", a collection of webcomics self-published by Faith Erin Hicks. My daughter is a bit of a fan of Faith's and picked up this book and had her sketch/sign it. I read it this morning on a whim, and was pleased to find that Faith continues to impress with each new idea she launches. This is an interesting take on superheroes that doesn't revolve around people punching each other in the face. Great reading for kids of all ages.
Fangoria that I'm going to have to start paying more attention to.
I didn't get as much of a chance as last year to get around and talk with people, but I did have some memorable interactions and enjoyed seeing things from behind the table this year. Be sure to check out the Hal-Con site for more photos and event details, and maybe I'll see you at next year's event!
