Comic Con Preview Night

Publish date:

Yesterday was the first day at Comic Con. Spent the day setting up the IMPACT Books booth.

Preview night at the con was insanely crowded. The show is sold out everyday and the floor is packed with people. I mostly worked at our booth last night. Comic writers Peter David and Marv Wolfman stopped by the IMPACT Booth and I also got some of my comics signed by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. Here's some fun pics:
