I got a great E-2 Huntress from Ramona Fradon, another great E-2 Huntress from Jamal Igle, Glenn Klimeck (a.k.a. "Why is this guy not drawing for the big guys?!?!? Guy") drew a fantastic E-2 Huntress for me (gee, I am beginning to see a pattern here....), and I spent some clams on Jay Fife Island for a pack of his prints (anyone wanna guess who was in the packet?). The auction was another great event. I gotta say that the artists and dealers that come to the show are generous to a fault when it comes to supporting causes like the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Hero Initiative, CBLDF, and other deserving causes. I am sure that once Patrick gets back in the saddle today or tomorrow he will provide a better round up of information, especially regarding the Stan Lee Event (and what an

Considering that it was the first time in a new venue and didn't have a walking distance hotel, the Con turned out a lot better than I was expecting. It was a very good trial Con. I like how bright the convention center is.
That being said, it's a lot smaller, or at least it seemed so. It seemed like there were a lot less booths, and I was not a fan of how Artist's Alley was set up. And I don't know if something can be done about it, but I know that some artists did not enjoy that they had to stare at a wall all day, whereas always in the past they had something/one across from them.
