We are doing an Artists' Alley featuring local high school talent. We're still recruiting for that, so if anybody reads this and would like to be a part, get in touch with me! We are having a Yu-Gi-Oh! tournament and we're working on some other things. We are very excited about this! Spread the word everybody and start planning your costumes!

Comicon Format

Hi, I'm a guest artist at your cool idea for a Comicon. I thought I would share some insights with you as to some features that many successful Comicons have, and which are perhaps achievable here. 1) Artist's Alley - Very popular. This is where pro and aspiring pros show their portfolios, and sell their signed, original artwork, and even do quick card sketches for fans. 2) Portfolio Review - Where aspiring artists bring their work for comments by pros who have agreed to participate. 3) Seminar Workshop - How to draw this or that, or workshops about getting into the business, and the latest trends in technology. 4) An area where fans (attendees) play trading card games with each other. 5) Racks of new and vintage comic book collections, on sale. I'll bet you could get that comic book shop in Norwalk to come with some vintage and current comics. Hope that helps. Chris Hart
