I did not go on Friday but I heard it was well attended.  The place was packed on Saturday.

Although admission was free, they clearly wanted you to pre-register on  I did not and was asked to wait on the standby line.  

A gentleman that was pre-registered for 6 but only had 4 in his party was nice enough to give the 2 extra tickets to me and another gentleman on the standby line.  We were given wrist badges and got in without a problem.  Something to think about for next year.

The place is small and full of independent comic creators and small vendors.

It's a nice show for showcasing independent comc creators.

Long time Marvel inker Keith Williams was also there doing commissions.  A super nice guy.

Hank Kwon from BulletProof Comics in Brooklyn also set up with prints, Funko Pop dolls, pins, etc.

I was there for about an hour with my friend Nick before we left for lunch and beat the snow.
