The First Hartford Comic Con 2014

Hartford Comic Con 2014
Saturday, May 31st & Sunday, June 1st
XL Center - Hartford, CT

Had a great time checking out the new first ever Hartford Comic Con on Saturday. 
Was only able to spend a couple hours - but was really pleased by the surprisingly large Artists Alley featuring 
 many current and on the rise artists. The show was quite busy for a first time event and there were plenty 
of fans showing off their creative costumes. And while there were several well known Cosplay Artist, select 
Pop Culture TV series guests, and some gaming tourneys - the show was definitely focused on Comics 
vs. Hartford's other event ConnectiCon - which showcases more Gaming and Anime fare.

From all reports it looks to have been a big success and I look forward to spending more time at next year's show! 
Below are a few quick photos I snapped...

Fantastic "From Earth to the Moon" Man Cosplay

 And brought home this small but mighty print haul from 3 of my fave artists!
