The NYC Comic Art Expo
Our next show will be Sunday April 28th at Manhattan’s Hotel Pennsylvania on 33rd St. in the Gold Ballroom.  

Is there a website for the show noting the expected dealers?

Question for past attendees, how does NYC Comic Art Expo compare with the NJ Comic Art Con in Hasbrouck Heights, is it pretty much the same dealers? the next NJ show is on April 14 so attending both shows two weeks apart seems silly.

Is Mike sketching for attendees?

Okay, I’m not the guy you’re asking, but—-

the one show I attended Mike wasn’t sketching but he did bring small, ~4x6 pencil sketches to sell for about $200. This was about 4-5 years ago.

If this turns out to be a small show attendance-wise he might sketch—but being that this is a show about making $$$$$ off the art of others, maybe not. Also, if non-OA collectors/Hellboy fans catch wind of his appearance, they might crowd the show, making less likely he’ll sketch. 

I know you didn’t ask me, but sharing my experience. (Frank Cho was at the LA Ultimate Show, but as far as I knew, he didn’t sketch.) It’d be cool if Mike does—never hurts to ask, unless it hurts to hear No!

 I’ve seen Mike a few times and he rarely sketches in the past if you had a Hellboy companion hard cover he would do a sketch in it but other than that no he sells the sketch as he brings to the show there three to $400 from last year when I saw him not to hundred but I’ll be there to buy up a bunch of those

If you are a Mignola fan, the choice is obvious.

Excited for the McCay pieces...will there be any advance list of what is being displayed and/or for sale?

Are these two focused 'art cons' SIMILAR to the comic book cons & shows where nearly all of the dealers have already pillaged each other's 'better value' material before the doors even open to the naive paid attendees?

What is the likelihood of 'all' the 'cheaper'/'better value' Mignola sketches being bought up by Synder, et. al. before the show opens?

I am interested in attending one of these focused 'art cons'...

Mignola's appearance coincides with the scheduled release of the new Hellboy movie in April 2019.

Amazingly enough, Hellboy celebrates it's 25th Anniversary this year.  :whatthe:

Mike Mignola could have an unspoken policy similar to Art Adams and Bruce Timm where he shows up very fashionably late to his table. This has been used as a deterrent for dealers to buy their stuff or fill up their sketch lists before the show starts. The hardcore fans who wait in line an hour after the con starts usually benefit. Your best bet is to get to the show as early as possible before the doors open, be one of the first to get in, and plant yourself at his table until he shows up.

I went to a show last year where he had very little line and bought 3 of his sketches, with many left in the portfolio after I left. I got there in the morning but after the doors opened.

I’m only about 2.5 hours away  from NYC and have been trying to score some Mignola art for years, so this is a no brainer for me. I was wondering if there is a website or Facebook page so I can keep up to date on the event? Or is this the best place to check in? With a 6 month old adding her own brand of chaos to my life I want to make sure I’m keep up to date.

 

Thanks!

I tweeted to Mike asking him to hold off on selling to the dealers until show ends, hopefully he will consider that.

As someone who will be going for the first time, can anybody fill me in on what to expect? I'm assuming this is mostly a show with various art vendors? Is there more than one artist guest or will Mignola likely be the big draw (which is a huge get either way)?

While Mignola will be the featured guest this year, I expect other artists to be there as well.  

Last year there were multiple artists with the featured guests being Neal Adams, Michael Golden, and Ray Lago.

Jim Sherman and Tom Palmer were there last year too.  It was a good show from my perspective -- not too big, but still enough dealers and artists to be well worth the trip.

Hello Original Art Enthusiasts,

We’re excited to again invite you to the NYC Comic Art Expo, a show of only original art from dealers, collectors and artists.

In addition we will have 25 original Winsor McCay artworks on display and offering publicly for the first time from the collection of Chris Parente, who’s father Joseph Parente ran The Little Nemo comic shop in NYC for close to three decades. 

And as you know among other things I represent Frank (The Wizard) Thorne and will have a great group of originals, including for the first time canvas recreation paintings of his Red Sonja covers.

Can’t make the Expo but want to offer something? Contact me about consigning.
