The Standard Returns to New York Comic Con!
September 11, 2012
After the resounding success of last year, I am pleased to report that I’ll be once again making the Trans-Atlantic trip to the US for New York Comic Con on 11th-14th October, representing The Standard at the ComixTribe table.
This year, after the success and growth of the past 12 months, ComixTribe’s presence at the con will be bigger and better. We’ll have more books on sale, including the debut of Kickstarter success story The Oxymoron, and a wider range of merchandise. As far as the presence of The Standard is concerned, we’ll be bringing the first 3 issues of the series with us, along with The Standard, Volume 1, a lovely graphic novel collecting those first three issues in a single edition. We’ll also have Standard T-shirts on sale, and a couple of exclusive prints.
But that’s not the best part. The news that has me really excited is that, for the first time, artist extraordinaire Jonathan Rector will be making his way to New York Comic Con. That’s right: the writer/artist creative team of The Standard will both be on hand! I’m personally over the moon that I’ll finally be able to meet my longtime collaborator in person for the first time, and any con attendees should jump at the chance to grab a sketch or an Artist Edition of The Standard #1 with a hand-drawn cover by the man himself!
I’ll be posting up more updates – including our table number/location and any other relevant news nuggets you should know – once more information becomes available. Watch this space…. and, hopefully, I’ll see some of you in October!
