ComicCONN August 24, 2013 - Time Enough for The Flash

Saturday August 24th in Trumbull, CT.

Some belated, but well deserved, love for Connecticut ComiCONN 2013.

I almost skipped posting about ComiCONN this year because we could only attend for a few hours
first thing in the morning (due to combined calender management fail by both me and my husband).
But we had the best time in those 2 hours - chatting with longtime fave Bill Walko, getting a signed  
Avengers print from Mark Bagley, discovering some fantastic new Star Wars fanart by Herofied,
and oh yeah - we met John Wesley Ship - The Flash! That's a lot to cram into 2 hours - you can
spend that much time just navigating the floor or waiting in line for one artist at a Big Con - and that's
 exactly why this quickly growing 1-Day Con with a perfect blend of comic focused veteran talent, along
with new and independent creators as guests, is a great show worth recommending to any Comic fan.

Simple and effective Doc Ock Cosplay enhanced by the right attitude.

It seems we missed a lot of the Cosplay - a contest was held later
in the afternoon - The CT Post has a photo gallery here.

The Local 501st

The groovy 60's Batmobile was on display.
 along with some impressive fan made Star Wars replicas.

Fan built Landspeeder Replica - complete with Star Wars Princesses.

Impossible to have too much Avengers art! Signed by Mark Bagley

Faves by Bill Walko

New Star Wars art to love by Rob Taylor - even more prints available@Herofied

The Flash - John Wesley Shipp - who was just an awesomely genuine guy.
Since we were going so early - I thought we might miss him - but it all worked out for the best!
Even if I did have a rare gushing fangirl moment.

I really wish we had more time - here's to much better planning next year!
