I dunno about that guy, frankly. He's come across as quite the jackass being the "social media rock star" he bills himself as. I'm sure he would like to be seen as the guy who saved boston comic con.


Yep Racist Con was my first thought we'd be getting instead.

Yeah he's a dick, he's not doing it to be a "good person" or show how awesome Massachusetts can be. He's doing it to make money for himself.

There's like 5 articles on bleeding cool about how shitty of a person he is. I've even had a very bad interaction with him myself.

The offical Boston Comicon Facebook Group says that artist and writers that had planed to be at the con will be doing signings at ComiCopia in Kenmor Square in Boston, ComicCazi in Davis Square in Sommervill, along with Larry's Comics. No details on what creators will be at what store.

He also continued to call a transgender person dude, man, sir, etc. on twitter after being asked not to. The guy is a scumbag.

You're referring to Christian Beranek, who is a trans-woman, if I've got the terminology down pat.

Anyway, I still think that some in the community might need an event like this in light of this week's events. That said, I have no interest in buying from him or getting a "phantom" variant.

Plus he ripped into the Atomic Robo guys for promoting their stuff digitally. 2 of the nicest guys in comics he went after.

Guy is a scumbag.

Well, I went to both Comicazi and Larry's. I realize that Larry rubs people the wrong way online but he really is good people.

At Comicazi on Saturday were

Tim Sale
Tim Seeley
David Mack
Bill Willingham
Agnes Grabowski
Ming Doyle
Don Rosa
Erica Henderson
Nick Bradshaw (found out that he was there but at a table outside instead of indoors)

At Larry's Saturday
Mike Choi (missed him when I was at Comicazi)
Alex Cormack
Tyler James
A bunch of dealers

At Larry's Sunday
Tim Sale
Tim Seeley
David Mack
Nick Bradshaw
William Stout
Norman Lee
Matt Slay
Rich Woodall
Alex Cormack

I'd heard Christine Zullo and Carlos Pacheco were in Bellingham Saturday.

Everyone was really friendly and jovial. It was a good time. Got a few sketches, a couple of comics and a print. I'll be scanning in and posting.
