It has been a slow year for me so far on the comic convention circuit, but it is starting to improve. It started with a day trip to Manhattan, with a stop at the new Metropolis Gallery. They have a huge cover art collection, including Harvey Hits #6 featuring the Phantom:
Next was a show put on by my local library, Electric City Comic Con. While there was nothing Harvey-related at the show, I got to meet a number of talented local artists, including Jess Fink, creator of the adorable Cookie Loves Milk.
Yesterday, I went to Garden State Comic Fest. I did not find many Harvey comics or toys, but I did get to meet Greg Hildebrandt!
Hopefully future shows will yield more Harvey treasures, but I treasure the moments I have had so far this year…
