  • Upcoming cons?

    Posted by evolver on February 17, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    Are there any upcoming cons in the NJ-NY-PA area that people on here will be attending? Im sure everyone else tracks these much better than I do … so a list of where y’all will be making appearances would be appreciated! I’d like to meet some people in person finally.

    FanFaire is happening in may but that is virtual this year I think, not sure if Big Apple Comic Con is still happening this year, I know the big one is NYCC in October, not sure about NJ or PA cons

    I started going to Zapp’s in the Before Times .. small but great selection. apparently they will be doing panels now as well. maybe we want to have a CBS presence there? its in Wayne NJ. Zapp is a fantastic shop.

      @buddyscalera take a look at this, outside of NYCC this maybe another option for CBS to reach a different audience

          It’s on my radar, I’ve tagged Buddy so if anything the ball is in his court if he wants to reach out to go to a more indie con than NYCC. if and when we have another counsel meeting I’ll bring it up and see what everyone thinks about it

      I had asked to be part of ZappCon, but Ben was primarily looking for artists. I think that makes sense, since everyone was sketching and having fun.

      The artists in our group should definitely reach out to Ben. I don’t think he even charges for space.
