Atlanta! Comic! Convention!

Excited? I tried. Anyway, I’m posting this notice purely for the sake of providing information. As I’ve never attended any previous Atlanta Comic Conventions, I will imply no actual endorsement of the affair. With that caveat in mind, let us proceed …

The Atlanta Comic Convention will be held this Sunday at the Atlanta Marriott Century Center (which I believe is just off I-85 at the Clairmont Road exit). It is a one-day convention, thus avoiding the usual hassles of arranging hotel accommodations or bathing outside the comforts of your own home. The special guest of this year’s convention is a comic book artist named Craig Hamilton. From what I can dig up, Hamilton was responsible for an Aquaman limited series for DC Comics in the 80s (one in which Aquaman’s orange and green outfit was replaced with a very flashy blue and aquamarine ensemble), a run on The Spectre for the same company, as well as some more recent work as an inker for Bill Willingham’s critically-acclaimed Fables line for DC/Vertigo. See?

So, yeah. Comic books. Sunday. Admission is $4. Who knows … there might be a bargain or two in the dealer’s area.
