The booths have been torn down, the lights turned off, and all the shwag taken home. New York Comic-Con may be over, but we have plenty more to bring you from the show. You might have noticed, but we handled a lot, A LOT, of interviews. It was a fantastic time for us and we owe a debt of thanks to all the authors and illustrators who stopped by to talk. These interviews will be coming your way soon, as well as a few other photos and plenty of thoughts and reviews of things we saw while walking around.
When we set out, we wanted to bring you everything all at once. And sure, we will do even better next time, but the reality is that these conventions are so busy and exciting that you often find yourself swept up in the tide of all that is going on around you. You have people in amazing costumes walking the floor and you snap their picture, then you turn around and you’re face-to-face with a bestselling author and then you’re having a conversation, you walk ten feet in twenty minutes time and shoot the breeze with a few of your favorite comic producers, then you talk with all sorts of fans, just like you, who might have news about a new release you hadn’t heard of yet, and then you witness a television station filming. The crowd continues and you drift with it, a wash of lights and sound engulfs you and you realize you have stepped into a den of video games either new to the market or not-yet-released.
That’s the Con, and on top of the normal excitement, we got to actually have recorded conversations with some amazingly talented authors. It was so much to take in that it’s going to take us longer than just the three days the Con runs to get it all out.
If you stopped by our booth, grabbed some mints, took a card or a bag (or all of the above), or just stopped in to say hi, let me say on behalf of us all, thank you. It was a joy to see everyone out there and the experience kept us buzzing long after mere mortals would have faded.
For my part, I have a stack of things to look over and type up for Suvudu. And on this, I know I’m not alone. So thanks to you all and good night Comic-Con New York; you were a great way to spend a weekend.
