Comic-con: the loot
Here are the essentials of the loot I snagged at The Con.
Jim Balent and Holly G’s sketchbook, signed by them. As I mentioned last year, I was a huge fan of Balent’s run on Catwoman. I check in with Tarot every once in a while for the outrageous scenarios and I’ll probably buy a sketchbook from them at every Con I attend.
Two sketchbooks from Chris Sanders. I don’t know why I didn’t get last year’s sketchbook last year so I made up for it.
Adam Hughes‘s sketchbook. I loved all his covers for Catwoman.
I read Robert Ullman’s blog. I picked up his new book, Atom-Bomb Bikini, but he wasn’t at the booth to sign it when I dropped by. And I couldn’t find it again. The print on the right was thrown in with the book and I bought two of his Teeny Bikini mini-sketchbooks to round my purchase out to an even $20. The Atom-Bomb Bikini book is really well done.
The Heavy Metal dudes were handing these out for free.
I picked up this debut issue of Fearless Dawn for the simple reason that it’s a reflex of mine to purchase when I see a girl in a bikini surrounded by monsters. I heard about the book from a postcard-sized flyer they were handing out at the Con. I almost bought the TPB, The Bomb, but somehow decided not to take that home with me. I can always order it if I like the ish.
Finally, what would Con be without toys? I grabbed a King Ken from StrangeCo and a blind box from Kidrobot’s Pure Trance series. I also got a Hellboy key chain but he didn’t show up for the photo shoot.
