BCGF: Say Yes to the Fest

The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Fest was pretty awesome. It was a 9 hour marathon of comics, art, hanging out, meeting new people, meeting internet people, people watching, reuniting with friends, geeking out, eating hot dogs, eating pizza, and good times. I'm pretty sure I was smiling really hard the entire time.

Nichols, Kid Mafia #1 by Michael Deforge; Sad People Sex 3 by Heather Benjamin; and in between Happiness and Chameleon is the greatest business card ever made, by Pete Toms.

I was really sad that I was too late to pick up Chameleon #2, but I made it to all the tables I wanted to, met a lot of cool people, saw some friends, watched Lizz Hickey rub glitter all over her face, took my previously purchased Forming book to Jesse Moynihan’s table for an autograph in which I nervously told him how much I love his comic, and ate an Asia Dog. But I was so overwhelmed just walking around, that I totally missed out on some really awesome stuff. Oh, comic conventions…

I'm also really sad that I didn't take more pictures!

I forgot to add that on Sunday I went to the satellite event Pictures and Performance: A Melodrama, which was really great. Shana Moulton did a performance, which I was really excited for, and it was amazing. I also really liked Matthew Thurber's scroll performance and Peter Burr's video Alone with the Moon.
