Comic Con 2010 recap

So it’s been a few weeks since I went to Comic Con, but I finally got around to documenting all the goodies I found this year.
First off, I stopped by Eric Gonzalez’s booth and picked up his new book, “Rosita and Conchita.” It’s a beautifully illustrated book.
Next, I found a playful print titled, “Lava Jump” for my son’s room by Travis Hanson.

Being a fan of Alice in Wonderland, I was curious to read a set of graphic novels I found. The “Return to Wonderland” books have some nice cover art. I was hoping for a more original derivative story, but like I said, the art’s nice.

I also picked up Cheeks’ 2009 sketchbook and he was kind enough to sketch Wolverine for me. Nice addition to the collection. And speaking of nice sketchbooks, I found a real nice one from Justin Orr.  I was drawn to his booth by his illustration work. He had a great Wolverine print which I promptly bought for my bro.

I also purchased a Michael Jackson “Smooth Criminal” print for my niece. But what REALLY caught my eye was a Johnny Sokko and his Flying Robot print. THAT was my favorite purchase of the Con.

Lastly, I added a new 10″ Hellboy from Gentle Giant to the shelf. A very nice addition. You can check out all the pics of the stuff I couldn’t afford at the NOPAL gallery.
