East Coast Comic Expo
East Coast Comic Expo is a growing Comic Centric Convention that is held in Moncton NB annually usually on the long weekend in May. Again this year my husband Ken (buriedbybricks) Robichaud had a table with his amazing lego creations and I was there taking photos of some of the very talented cosplayers.
There were many special comic book guests such as Nick Bradshaw (artist for Wolverine and The X-Men), Ken Lashey (artist for Superman), Dave Ross (artist for Iron Man), J Torres (writer for Teen Titans Go!), Faith Erin Hicks (artist for The Adventures of Superhero Girl), Stuart Immonen (Artist for All-New Captain America) and last but not least Kathryn Immonen (writer for Operation S.I.N). All of whom were willing to do autographs, sketches and just chat for a few minutes with their fans.
In addition to these amazing artists and writers, the creator of Captain Canuck, Richard Comely was there with the launch of the new Captain Canuck series and a ton of Captain Canuck swag for fans. My son was particularly proud to have Mr. Comely, (“the creator of his hero” in his words) do a sketch on a blank cover of his summer special.
As always there was a number of fasinating and talented artist alley creators and artists selling their wares and art. Some of my favourites were Poopsmoothie, Brain Slug, and of course Karibu Illustrations a who we did feature on last week before ECCE. If you have a moment check out their websites.
While I didn’t take many photos inside of the artists and exhibitors (I was too busy just enjoying looking at their stuff ) I did have the opportunity to photograph many of the cosplayers outdoors around the convention center. If you would like to see all of the images from ECCE please visit my ECCE Shoot Proof Gallery If I took your image and you would like to download a copy I am happy to offer it as a free download from this gallery.
