Last Year's Mini-Con!!!
Last year the Union West Library held a mini comic book convention as part of the summer reading for the kids. The mini-con lasted about 3 hours and brought in more than 300 people, maybe close to 400. For that many people to say "Hey, let's spend our evening at the library" I think is pretty cool!
As Troy Hasbrouck, creator of the Night comic books as well as proprietor of Rebel Base Comics and Jester Press said, "It was the best darned miniest mini-con ever!"
A whole bunch of great artists came out to give of their time and talents for this event including Marcus Hamilton (Dennis the Menace), Al Bigley (Geminar, DC, Marvel), Andy Smith (DC, Image, Marvel, CrossGen), Budd Root (Cavewoman), Buddy Prince (Night, Marvel Masterpieces), Dave McDonald (Hamster Sam), Holly Plyler (manga artist on the rise!), Marcus Kelligrew (Captain Courage), Derek & Nikki Davis (The Erad Adventures), and the guys from Heroes Aren't Hard to Find comic book shop!
