A quick Bellingham Comicon recap

Check out a few photos from Bellingham Comicon. It's a great little show, that I highly recommend.
Between caught up chatting with great artists like Batman and Robin artist Mick Gray, and Aaron Lopresti of Wonder Woman fame, and listening to legendary artist Rick Hoberg tell stories about his years in the comic business
I kind of dropped the ball on the whole taking lots of pictures thing. I do want to see all of your photos from the show, so if you have some good stuff, come show them off at the Comic Book Swap Meet Facebook group. That along with the Comic Book Swap Meet page is our official www.thestevestrout.com Facebook connection. Go join and like both!

The legendary Rick Hoberg at work on sketches for a fan. Expect a Q&A in the coming months with Mr. Hoberg

Great crowd and lots of excellent vendors!
Our friends at Secret Fortress comics have a fantastic selection!

I think they were Ponies? Anyone? They looked great either way...
This kid was cool. I honestly forgot who he said he was though.

More hustle and bustle at the show!
More great cosplays
A line at Emberlin's table...ALL DAY!
My friends in the 501st!
Mr. Fett with TheSteveStrout
Mick Gray...another artist whom I hope to pick their brain soon!
I also had the opportunity to chat with a great Canadian actor named Mike Roberds, who's appeared in everything from the Will Ferrell movie Elf, to playing Uncle Fester on the New Addams Family that aired in the 90's. I thought it was super cool that he appeared on the "Yellow Fever" episode of Supernatural in season 4!!! We plan to keep in touch, so we'll probably hear more about Mr. Roberds. For now, give him a follow on Twitter: @MikeRoberds

I have to personally thank the producers of the Bellingham Comicon (specifically Eric Burris) for inviting me to the show. It meant a lot that you reached out top us at www.thestevestrout.com, and I look forward to seeing you again next year!
