NY Comic Con’09

I was blessed to be able to attend the NY Comic Con ’09 convention at the Jacob Javits Center, this past weekend February 6-8.† It was an awesome time, with attendence in the thousands.

My primary reason for attending was to seek out artists and illustrators to work with me on my new book, SpeedSuit Powers.† My secondary reason was because I love comic books.† The outcome of the weekend proved to be extremely beneficial (despite my being physically exhausted from walking around for three days); providing contacts with artists, illustrators, writers, novelists and a noteable television personality.† I even hired artist/illustrator Shawn Alleyne to drawn his version of the main character from my novel, based on my concept drawings.† They came out great!

OBSERVATIONS

When I wasn’t networking or sitting in on panel discussions and performances, I walked around and observed my surroundings.† Here are a few of my observations:

The Last Son of Krypton

The Last Son of Krypton

The following is from the book, Transition: Breaking Through the Barriers.

Having grown up with a poor self-view and low self-worth, I found myself looking for something to fill the void within me. I found Clark Kent. He was always described as mild-mannered, a pushover who didnít walk with confidence, a timid soul who looked on the skinny side by the way that he dressed. His greatest distinguishing feature was his glasses Ė thick framed and giving the perception of poor vision.
