As previously discussed, I was in attendance at the annual Book Expo and Book Con that was being held at the famous convention center the Javits. Technically speaking, this is being loaded up on the final day of the Expo part of the convention which is the more business side. The Book Con portion begins tomorrow and will run the entire weekend. During the more business side of it all I try to see what the folks at the comic book publishers are doing if they are in attendance and having already presented some of the findings at Image Comics (seen HERE), its time to share my quick visit to the DC Entertainment booth.
As you can see there are a lot of cool collected editions heading our way that feature titles that are currently on the racks of your neighborhood comic book shop. Above are items featuring numerous issues in one volume of “Miracle Man” and “Detective Comics” while down below are “Aquaman” and “Batman: White Knight”.
These next few photos are some brand-new stuff coming from the DC Comics folks and its a line of Younger Readers graphic novels and illustrated stories. I was able to peruse a few of them and remembered that the most recent “Free Comic Book Day” included a few samplers of two of the titles that I saw here at the Book Expo. My friends with the younger kid readers in the household are going to love these.
Here’s artists Franco and Art Balthazar who collaborated on a cool Young Reader “Superman” book. We see both of these gents at the NY Comic Con every year in Artist Alley so it was nice to find them hitting the Book Expo.
These next two photos were added into the original narrative and taken at the same booth but during The Book Con part of the day. As I’ve mentioned, TBC is a consumer focused day and the books that we saw on the shelves were all for sale if people were interested. I didn’t manage to learn if they were discounted or not but I will hope so as it made sense in this setting. I returned because there were some other artists and writers appearing. Below you’ll find Agnes Garbowska who draws the amazing “DC Superhero Girls” comic book and Danielle Paige who wrote the “Mera” book.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Sadly the booth wasn’t giving any of these items out which would have led to some reviews and Amazon.com links to direct you to purchase them but if we should end up with them in our collection for some reason, I will consider a larger discussion here on the website.
