This weekend the Second Annual Black Comic Book Festival took place at The Schomburg Center. This year, the event spanned two days. Last year’s festival was all in one day. It was good to see this event promoted everywhere, and taken seriously despite so many associating comic books with teenagers and geeked out twenty-somethings. (And some thirty-somethings as well 🙂


The place was packed with fans, and conversations about  comic book characters mainstream and obscure filled the library halls. No comic book festival would be complete without folks walking around in costume.

All in all, solid advice was given about being a professional regarding your work as a comics writer/designer, and marketing it well. While I caught the tail end of most of today’s festivities, #BCBF14 was a cool event.
