Conventions – Comic-Con, MomoCon, SDCC, Gen Con & More

Going to San Diego Comic Con or another drawing convention? Why not take us with you? Okay, even if you aren’t splashing out for air fare and hotel rooms for the editors of IMPACT Books, you can make sure you have the best experience possible by preparing in advance! Of course, if you’re wanting to avoid the insanity of SDCC but still want to meet and mingle with your favorite authors and artists like David Mack, there are a ton of opportunities coming your way. Grab your chance by hitting up your local comic con. And if you’re going to be at GenCon, come say hello. If we’re not in artists’s alley, we’ll probably be trying on hats.
