Earlier in July, we visited the Haverford Township Free Library for their first-ever Comic Con. It was a small affair, held just 20 minutes away from the Locust Moon Comics retail store/home-base. And it was loads of fun. We had a blast talking to lots of kids and their parents, sketching, participating in panels, and even helping to judge a great kids’ art contest.

Andrew Carl (Editor; Writer, “John Henry”), Chris Stevens (Producer; Writer, “The Boy Who Drew Cats”), David Tanh (Writer, “The Tea Garden Park Soapbox Grand Prix”), Dave Proch (Artist, “A.L.I.C.E.”), Rob Woods (“The Venusian Shepherd Boy Who Cried Space Wolf”), and Jimmy Comey (“Kid Yimage and the Really Big Hole”) all showed up for the festivities. Dave, Rob, and Jimmy spent nearly all day with pens in hand and noses to paper — they never stopped drawing!

The library had their own advance copy of Paul Pope’s Battling Boy on-hand, which we all took turns flipping through and drooling over. Dave was inspired to recreate some of the magic, just for kicks:

Jimmy joined a Superhero Sketch Showdown with Mike Townsend and the great Bob McLeod.

Andrew and Chris sat on a panel with Matt Phelan and Dawn Griffin to discuss the process of of “Creators Creating” — from idea to publication and everything in between.

Dave and Rob lead a “Let’s Draw!” workshop for the kids, with the help of Matt Phelan and Bob McLeod. And we’ve got video!

We hope the Haverford Library Comic Con returns next year – because we’ll be there!
