Adventures of a Comic Con Girl #1,
VERY FINE/NEAR MINT
BONUS REVIEW by John "Doc" Schaefer
(W) Jon Solo, Dana Braziel-Solovy
(A/CA) David Beauchene
Follow Dana on her misadventures in and around the comic convention scene. It's a fast and furious look at the quirky characters of the comic community and their rivalries, where the battles are so bitter because the stakes are so small. Dramatic license has been taken with the con goings-ons, but the content will still have you nodding in ruthless agreement.
After all these years working at comics conventions, after the initial awe wears off (about 3 minutes, these days) I realize that the glory days are over. And that is exactly why I love this book! Dana's misadventures at the convention remind of the good old days. The opening sequence could have come right out of my personal memoirs (exceot that I'm not a girl and I don't believe I even actually pooped in my hotel bed but other than that...) But having it shown through Dana's eyes was even better. You can't help but wonder about the girls in costumes at these shows and Dana and her friends prove to be wonderful examples! Again, it is a little known independent that knocks me off my feet!
I give it 10 out of 10 Grahams
