NYCC 2013 – Comics Experience Report

nycc-2011-logoNYCC 2013 was another great convention for Comics Experience folks!

In particular, we had our largest “in-person” Meet-Up ever, with Comics Experience instructors, pros, alums, and Workshop members taking over the entire back area of Mulligan’s on Saturday night.

There were so many comic creators present that we had multiple requests for name tags in the future.

Plus, we had Workshop members and alums from all over the world, including Australia, Brazil, Portugal, the exotic land of Canada, and from all over the United States. In many cases, it was a first “face-to-face” meeting for people who have known each other for years via our Creators Workshop online community.


Comics Experience friends included: Amy Chu, Andy Schmidt, Angela Allen, Antonio Brandao, Billy Yurkas, Bobby Curnow, Brandon Seifert, Carlos Felipe, Curtis Lawson, DaFu Yu, Dan Rivera, Eric Drumm, Erik Korsgaard, George O’Connor, Heidi Ward, James Babbo, J.D. Oliva, Jeremy Melloul, John Friscia, Joshua Williamson, Ken Perry, Kevin Byrne, Kyle Higgins, Matt Yocum, Mike Costa, Nick DeDual, Nic Shaw, Paul Allor, Rob Anderson, Sean Flahaven…and that doesn’t even include the guests of members who joined us, from spouses to creative collaborators!

We also had many members, instructors, and alums exhibiting and/or signing during the convention, including: Amy Chu, Chris Sotomayor, DaFu Yu, Jeff Marsick, Joe Sergi, Nick Dedual, Nick Spencer, Richard Clark, Rich Douek, Rob Anderson, Robert Atkins, Shaun Noel, and Vito Delsante.

It was great seeing everyone and we’re already looking forward to next year!

(And if you’re a comic creator looking to improve your craft, learn about the industry, and connect with a like-minded community of creators, make sure to check out our Creators Workshop, for all those days between the cons!)
