ComiqueCon was a huge success! Organized by Chelsea Liddy, with the help of Dan and Katie Merritt from Green Brain Comics, the first-ever all-female comics show drew over 350 attendees — and national coverage.
Reports from the press, exhibitors, and attendees were overwhelmingly positive, and I sure hope this turns into an annual thing, because I had a fantastic time, as did Paul. The panels I attended were excellent, and I really enjoyed hearing Mikki Kendall speak, as I’ve been a fan of hers for ages. My panel went pretty well, too, judging by the number of whoops I got out of the audience (talk about affirming experiences…) and the folks who came up to speak to me afterwards.
This article from the Press and Guide has a nice writeup and some great photos, and the ComiqueCon Twitter feed links to a bunch of podcasts if you’d like to see and hear more about how the show went.
Thanks again to everybody who made the show happen, and here’s to another year! I’m so glad I got to be a part of ComiqueCon’s inaugural year.
