Nice to know youll be there. Gab is there every year, weird choice for a guest of Honour this year i think...
who will go to NY Comic Con ?
it's great to see such great authors !
I'm going - fan from Philadelphia here.
And it's about time they made Gab a "GUEST OF HONOR", I just hope it doesn't prevent me from finally getting a commission sketch from him.
Gab is a phenominal artist, I'm just glad that NYCC have made the announcement that he will be attending. I remember last year, no mention of his being there was made by NYCC
Xav - I'll try to get some good pics this year of his sketches and e-mail them for all the fans to see.
my best advice is to get there friday when the convention opens and get on the list.
his list fills up quick and he is pretty firm about not adding to the list once it is complete.
Thanks for the advice, that was definitely my plan. As a matter of fact I bought a VIP ticket which will allow me to get into the con early on Friday, so I'll be running for his table.
Like I said, I'll try to get some pics of the sketches he does if I can.
