New York Comic-Con is coming up, and so are dozens of regional shows throughout the country. And what’s the biggest thing going at conventions these days… other than cosplay? Meeting and greeting our favorite creators! For many of you, it’s also a chance to commission sketches by some of the most talented artists in the world as well.
These sketches tend to look kinda poopy when you hand the creator your grocery list and say to the artist, “Yo, draw the Punisher on the back of this for me.” Or something to that effect. That’s why IDW Publishing created their own Convention Sketchbook.
Using the same high-quality paper from our prestigious hardcover collections, your sketches will look fantastic while being protected from creases and exterior contaminants.
On Monday August 20th 2012 we’re going to give away 5 of these sketchbooks to 5 Twitter followers! How do you enter to win one? Follow the simple steps below:

Matt D. (your gregarious host) and Morgan Pielli (your intrepid cameraman and director) took a trip to this year’s New York Comic Con. The sights! The sounds! The…smells! It’s a sensory overload, and you just never know when inspiration will strike..!
This weekend at the Sheraton Meadowlands in East Rutherford New Jersey Saturday Nightmares returns! I went last year and it was one of the best convention experiences I’ve ever had.
Worth checking out for The Twilight Zone marathon on the big screen alone.
One of my favorite parts of the Saturday Nightmares convention is the focus on actual film screenings. So many conventions really blow this. I’m personally looking forward to seeing The Birds on the big screen with an intro by Tippi Hedrenand Q&A moderated by one of the most engaging personalities in the genre Roy Frumkes!
But I’m most excited about meeting Debra Gordon, who was in one of my all time favorite movies Bloodsucking Pharaohs in Pittsburgh.
