Drawing 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!
