Awesome Con Friday photos

I had a good time walking around the Con yesterday, talking to local cartoonists and a few visiting ones. I did an interview with Andrew Looney of Looney Labs, a College Park-based game maker who has licensed comic properties and hires artists to illustrate his Fluxx card games. That'll appear in a few days.

I also quite enjoyed the science side and talked to people from NASA, the Smithsonian and National Geographic, and would recommend that as well.

We have a new correspondent who does live sketching at local events and we should see some work from him as he's attending today.

David Betancourt of the Washington Post interviewed Paul Levitz and Dan Jurgens about Superman at the Library of Congress on Thursday night.

March's Andrew Aydin also has X-Files comics for sale. He's working with Congressman Lewis on more stories.

Keith Giffen did my absolute favorite run on Legion of Superheroes. I was able to buy a piece of original art of his Ambush Bug character a few stalls away.

Colleen Doran has a wide variety of her work for sale, including Sandman comics.

Joe Harris is visiting from NY, and Andrew Aydin recommends his work. Rockstars is his creator-owned book that's just been collected.

Sean Causeley and Julian Lytle are tabling together and both have new books out.

Local cartoonist Bill McKay does a lot of cover art.

Local cartoonist Evan Keeling works for the Smithsonian and also makes a lot of minicomics for them. These are free, and totally cool.
