Local creator David Crispino had three different comic book offerings “Blood and Time” ( A horror western), “Control” (a sci-fi thriller) and “Commuters” drawn by “I TASTE SOUND” creator Mike Rilley. David also had preview copies of his new book “Smair” starring Victor Acord in the title role.

I took in the DC Comics panel hosted by DC Comics Editorial Director Bobbi Chase with guests Aaron Kruder, Cliff Chiang, Dan Jurgens, Dave Finch, Paul Levitz, Greg Capullo, Joe Prada and Ivan Reis. A certain Blue and Gold character is discussed and they take questions from the audience!
After the panel I had a great conversation with “Action Comics” artist Aaron Kruder about Jim Steranko, Al Williamson and his growing family of rescue dogs.
