I attend a lot of comic and gaming conventions and living in Southern California i'm fortunate that most of the major conventions are relatively close by. Blizzcon (two blocks away), Kamikaze/Anime Expo (45-60 minute drive), and San Diego Comic Con (1.5-2 hour depending on traffic).

Thought I'd share my recent visit to SDCC 2016 this past week. Four days of waking up early and sleeping late, baking in the sun as I waited in lines, trying to get ahold of exclusive collectibles and autographs! Here are some of my highlight finds!

#1 Allen Bellman commissioned sketch cover!!!

Allen was an artist at marvel before it was "marvel" and was hired at the age of 18 to assist in background art for Captain America comics back in the 1940's during WWII. He was there with Jack Kirby before Stan Lee came on board (Stan was away at war).

This is my SDCC 2016 GRAIL because Allen is known to be the second artist to draw Captain America, a 75 year old character. At the age of 92, Allen's still got the talent, he was very humble, nice and you wouldn't have known who he was by passing him by...actually many of my comic collector friends didn't even know he was at the Con! Had they and others known, I'm sure his table would have been flooded and I wouldn't have been able to ask get my sketch commission done by him.
