The lines began to wrap around the building hours in advance of the sneak peak in to the largest comic book and popular arts convention in the world. San Diego Comic-Con International kicked of the 11th annual Preview Night with no less than festive style. Warner Bros backpacks featuring the likes of “Supernatural” and “Vampire Diaries” had yet to hold the swag from the goods of the Exhibit Hall. Preview Night is about the chance to see what exclusives can be obtained, what exhibits have come to call, and for a moment to stand with tride and true favorites before the overwhelming swarm comes on the following Thursday.
What were the highlights for this writer? Aside from getting a chance to get a feel for the landscape (such as where Small Press was, what artists looked interesting, and what my Thursday stalking grounds would be) I was able to get some warm up images. Enjoy, and be on the lookout for thoughts on: the glory of small press & other overlooked indie ventures, panels of interest, and how I will survive another three days of this insanity.
