Last weekend (Oct 17, 18, & 19 2014) I attended the San Diego Comic Fest at the Town and Country hotel on hotel circle. It was a great convention.
Under I was wrong. When I got the preliminary schedule I researched the different presentations on the web (who are they talking about, should I know this guy). I was disappointed that there were not many presentations on making comics. I was wrong. There were plenty of presentations by writers and artist on making comics. This year there were also several presentations on Kickstarter and doing Kickstarter campaigns. The Kickstarter talks drew good crowds.
There were unscheduled talks including one that went till after 10:00 PM Saturday.
I heard other attendees say that the presentations were good this year so it’s not just me that thinks it was a good con. I go to find out how to make better comics and it is always a relief to find others are having the same problems I am having. Now if I could find someone that would warn me of the problems before hand.
There were many presentations on other subjects but hey I’m focused.
Besides where else can you go and have Spiderman as your IT guy, complete with Google Glass. Your costume rocks AV tech.
You could get a ride in a Ghost Buster’s car.
Artist alley was packed. A friendly busy bunch. There were the occasional shouts of where is my brush pen and buy my book.
Plenty of Steampunk costumes.
Lots of music, with live band.
I had family commitments and had to skip Sunday but if Sunday was anything like Friday and Saturday it was a great conference.
