From One Side Of Lake Como Comic Art Festival To The Other

|

That was the Lake Como that was. No cosplay. No TV and movie stars. No games or action figures. Just comic book artists and comic book art, in a place befitting of the beauty of that art, Lake Comic Comic Art Festival. I took a lot of photos from the event as well as a From One Side Of The Show To The Other video.

Just like that. And I took plenty of photos too, as well as last night’s Opening Gala, and today’s Art Auction, here’s a look at the first day of Lake Como Comic Art Festival.

An entrance in every language expected to possibly attend the show…

As even I could afford the Wolves In The Wall illustration.

While Olivier Coipel’s covers caused a storm online, apparently naked women are fine, but naked men? Nevertheless, it made for a rather hot exclusive cover for the new Blood Staines Teeth comic book from Image Comics.

At which point I think I’ll shut up and let the rest of the photos just speak for themselves, I want to go and get dinner, I hope that’s okay… it does look rather glorious and the smells are enticing me.
