This weekend was the first ever C1 Comicon in Ringgold, GA. It was housed at the Colonnade, which I had never been to, but it was really nice venue. The people that organized the show and volunteered were top notch. They were incredibly helpful and made everyone feel completely at home. The vendors represented a wide-range of interests for fans of all walks. They had comic book vendors (who had some really sweet items), collectible/toy sellers, some artists, a few authors (myself included), and even some Walkers from The Walking Dead.
While at the con, I got to hang out with some cool people that I’d already met, but I also had the opportunity to meet some great new people, who helped make the con fun for everybody. First up, I got to meet Sketch MacQuinor, the lead animator of Cartoon Network’s Squidbillies. You can check out my facebook page to hear his reading of the first chapter of Winston & Baum and the Secret of the Stone Circle.
You should check out some of the awesome work he’s put up on his deviantart.
Sketch was on my left and on my right was fellow indy author J.A. Tony. I had the pleasure of meeting his cover artist DM at Connooga this year, and was glad I got to finally meet J.A. These two were great to hang out with and share some laughs. J.A.’s book Gabriel: Sinner is available now, and I highly encourage you to pick it up. You can click on the cover beneath the photo to get a copy.
Last, and far from least was Eddie Price. Eddie is a great comic book artist, who I had the pleasure to meet at Steampunk Expo. He’s a fun guy and does some astounding 3d artworks. You should check him out on facebook and purchase all of his stuff.
I’ve been told that C1 will be happening again next year, and frankly, I can’t wait. This was a fun show with great vendors, artists, and attendees that was put on by a grade A staff. Until next year C1, see you then.
