Are you a lover of all things arty, bold, creative?! Perhaps an old school comic book nerd at heart or just a welcome novice to the entire phenomenon? Well, either way, join me (seriously, sporting my snort laugh and somewhat antiquated school girl fascination to this event) in an “all-out-comic-book-geek-out”… with over 150 exhibitors, 7 hours of programming daily, live art shows and a comedy showcase.
