Countdown To Camden Comic Con 2017
Earlier this year I attended Camden Comic Con, which was held at the Rutgers Campus in my home town of Camden, New Jersey... and the excitement is already building towards the next one on April 8, 2017.
Well let's look at what's already been announced.
Jon Schindehette of ArtOrder.com and who has worked as a creative director for Dungeons & Dragons will be in attendance. From what I understand he's going to do a lecture on building a portfolio for both D&D and Magic: The Gathering as well as producing one's own comic book. That's pretty damn cool for those who are creators looking for advice on how to get their foot in the door as well as insight on getting their content made.
Also announced, Mark Morales who has worked at DC and MARVEL, Bryan JL Glass (known for work on the Mice Templer), plus Pat Shand the writer behind Desnity NY. That's already an impressive line up in my humble opinion.
But the guests aside, you know what's great about Camden Comic Con? It's a great community event, for people of all ages, that really celebrates geek culture, and it's in an easy to access area for people who drive and for those of us who take public transit. Trust me, it's easier to get to Rutgers Campus in Camden than it is to get to the Philadelphia Convention Center where the rather over priced Wizard convention is often held.
Now we're obviously still a few months away, and more guests and vendors are going to be announced between now and April, and the best way to stay up to date is to check out the C3's tumble page at http://camdencomiccon.tumblr.com/ and to follow them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/camdencomiccon.
Plus any time something new is announced I'll keep ya'll posted here.
