This weekend, Auntie Katie’s Books with Pictures was not only full of people, but surrounded by people! Hundreds of them! It was amazing.
It was the First Annual BwP (say it BWIP) Comic Con. There were thirty artist vendors (including Auntie Bridgett).
There was a book signing by comic artist Steve Lieber and a comics trivia game run by Douglas Wolk.
And finally, a wonderful talk, Q and A and book signing by comic artists Kelley Sue DeConnick, David F. Walker, and Brian Michael Bendis.
Hundreds of people shopped, played, listened, talked, and had a wonderful time.
Adding to the fun were Rob Courage, who played music on his guitar to start the day; April, who makes giant bubbles,
Paulette, who runs a digital photo booth,
Maia doing face painting, and Cousin Kestrel giving people temporary tattooes.
The vendor tables were set up around the three sides of the shop. There were all sorts of things for sale. Books, clothes, jewelry, stickers, and original art. I will tell you more about BwiP Con in tomorrow’s blog.
