Yes, unfortunately Brett had 3 vendors cancel at the last minute for various reasons and he was unable to get anyone to fill the space on such short notice. Hence the artists and cosplayers, etc. He wasn't very happy about it either.

The November show was originally supposed to be smaller but there was so much interest from Sellers that Brett has upgraded to a larger space. I can almost guarantee that you will drive home with an empty wallet and a pile of comics! Big Grin

I will be there, though not as a seller. My friend who is a Wizard will also be in attendance to perform live magic tricks. Should be a blast, hope to see you!

I'll pass that along to Brett. If you, or any seller, are interested in setting up at any VA Comicon let me know. I can get you in touch with the big guy. Just for clarification, I am Brett's employee but I don't have anything to do with the Convention. He's got different people for that. But I would be more than happy to help out if anyone needs it. Sometimes I can even get Exclusive Variant covers as well. Let me know!

Greetings!

This is Brett from the VA Comicon, and boy do we have pretty much the biggest news we have EVER announced about the shows here in Richmond, so here goes:

We will be running TWO more shows in 2014. The first will be at the Clarion on August 31st. The second will be at the Richmond Raceway Complex on Nov 22-23 in our largest location YET (50,000+ square feet!).

We REALLY think we have a GREAT 1-day show, and the 2-day show is 10 TIMES the size of that show, with over 100 10'x10' booths in Artists' Alley alone!

We have decided to keep November 22-23 weekend passes at only $19.95 each, but now you get 1 free ticket to our AUGUST show for every NOVEMBER ticket you purchase. Yep...2 shows for less than $20...and the second one includes Richmond's largest Anime Show, a Car show, a $1,000 cash costume contest and over 10,000 square feet of vintage collectibles for sale!

If you absolutely cannot make it to the November show, we REALLY want you to still be at our August event...so we haven opened up 100 FREE Cosplay tickets to that event as well.

To get your FREE ticket to our August show, go on over to www.VAComicon.com and register now. Below is the brand new diagram for November. It's gonna be HUGE (Just announced: We are moving across the parking lot to the GIANT Expo Hall!).

Regarding the 2-day show, Check out our GIANT guest-list on the website. We just added Larry Hama (GI JOE), Tom King (Grayson), Billy Tucci (Shi), Comic Book Live! (Hollywood's top cosplay improv group) and MORE. We managed to double in size and keep the admission at only $20. Not gonna lie...I'm feeling pretty darned good about that.

Remember, The more you continue to support your local comic show, the harder it makes us work to put on the best shows and bring the finest licensed collectibles to Richmond (Like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles exclusive comic covered in Silver Foil you can only get at our November show). Thanks again for all of your help, and have a GREAT day!

Art Legend Steve Rude Joins Virginia Comicon

Nexus Co-Creator Heads to Richmond for November 22-23 Show

[Richmond, Virginia] Acclaimed artist Steve Rude, co-creator of Nexus and illustrator of a whole slate of high profile comic book projects, will be a guest for the Virginia Comicon's two-day show, Saturday and Sunday, November 22-23, 2014 at the Richmond International Raceway, 602 E Laburnum Ave, Richmond, VA 23222.

Steve "The Dude" Rude broke onto the comic book scene with the arrival of Capital Comics' Nexus #1 in 1981. The black and white, magazine format publication introduced readers to Horatio Hellpop, also known as Nexus, the powerful, dream-plagued avenger for the victims of mass murderers. Nexus #1 also introduced fans to the artwork of the character's co-creator, Steve Rude.

A dark-yet-optimistic space opera, Nexus was populated with humans and a vast array of alien races, including the Thunes, the Quattros, the Giz and many others. It was set in regions of space ranging from the foreboding to the highly humorous, and it seamlessly combined over-the-top action with nuanced personal interaction. All of this set the stage for Rude's artwork to shine. He showcased not only his comic book influences such as Jack Kirby, Alex Toth and Russ Manning, but his fine art chops as well.

After three issues, the black and white magazine format Nexus was traded in for a full-color, standard size comic books, first from Capital Comics and then for a long run from First Comics, initially ending with Nexus #80. It was subsequently revived at Dark Horse Comics as a series of mini-series. After a brief stint in self-publishing, the character's new adventures presently appear in Dark Horse Presents, with the original publications collected in archival hardcover editions (Nexus Archives) and soft covers (NexusOmnibus).

"Whether you got to know Steve Rude's work on Nexus, World's Finest, Mister Miracle, Space Ghost, The Incredible Hulk vs. Superman or any of his other projects, you no doubt understand why he's won multiple Eisner Awards, the 1984 Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award, the Inkpot, the 1986 Jack Kirby Award (Best Artist for Nexus), and the 1991 Harvey Award (Best Artist for World's Finest)," said Virginia Comicon promoter Brett Carreras. "Steve is doing some of the best work of his career, and we're so pleased to finally have him onboard for our big two-day show. It's no surprise why so many of our fans have told me Steve is their favorite artist. We are going to give these fans EXACTLY what they want...The Dude is working on a special art print and a 2-part live art demonstration JUST for his fans in Richmond!"

Rude joins a roster that includes Wolverine co-creator and veteran Incredible Hulk artist Herb Trimpe and longtime G.I. Joe writer-artist Larry Hama, as well as previously announced guests including (in alphabetical order) Steve Bird (Pacific Rim), Brian Clevinger (Atomic Robo), Sam Ellis (Archer), Dan Fogel (Fogel's Underground Price Guide and Grading Guide), Danielle Frazetta (Frazetta Books and Prints), Jerry Gaylord (Fanboys vs. Zombies), Penelope "Peng-Peng" Gaylord (Fanboys vs. Zombies), Randy Green (Witchblade), Rick Ketcham (Amazing Spider-Man), Tom King (Grayson), Dan Nokes (Impossible Space Tales of The Last Pit Stop), Dan Parent (Archie), Alex Saviuk (Web of Spider-Man), Brian Shearer (GI Joe), Matt Slay (Time Travel Tales), Louis Small, Jr. (Vampirella), Rick Spears (The Auteur), Billy Tucci (Shi), Bryan "Flash" Turner (Fanboys vs. Zombies), J.C. Vaughn (The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide), and John "Waki" Wycough (Vitriol).

The show has a full slate of independent comic book creators, cosplay guests, horror TV legend Count Gore DeVol, film and TV replica cars, media guests, and much more. There will be panel discussions, a costume contest, and more.

Additional guests will be added soon. Please check the show's site
and see which of YOUR friends have RSVP'd on our Facebook Event Page (over 1,000+ fans have already signed up).

Tickets are now available online. A list of show exclusive variant covers and other material will be announced shortly.

VA Comicon Exclusive: TMNT/Ghostbusters #1

Rarest(?) TMNT and Ghostbusters ever at Nov 22-23 Show

[Richmond, Virginia] "The Virginia Comicon is going to offer what I believe is not only the rarest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles convention exclusive ever, but also the rarest Ghostbusters convention exclusive ever!" said Virginia Comicon promoter Brett Carreras.

Two versions of IDW Publishing's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters #1 will be available at the long-running Virginia Comicon's two-day show, Saturday and Sunday, November 22-23, 2014 at the Richmond International Raceway, 602 E Laburnum Ave, Richmond, VA 23222.

With cover art by show guest Matt Slay, the red foil edition of TMNT/Ghostbusters #1 will be limited to 1,000 copies, and the gold foil edition will be limited to only 250 copies.

"Many fans know that Gobbledygook #1 and 2 are widely acknowledged as the rarest Turtles appearances to date, and rightly so, but at 250 copies our gold foil edition of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters #1 could very well be the rarest for each of these storied franchises," Carreras said

Convention attendees can advance order up to five copies of the red foil edition. Slay will be on hand to sign copies of both editions free of charge for the duration of the show.

Slay, a Virginia Comicon favorite, joins a guest roster headlined by Wolverine co-creator and veteran Incredible Hulk artist Herb Trimpe, longtime G.I. Joe writer-artist Larry Hama, and Nexus co-creator and artist Steve Rude.

The line-up of previously announced guests also includes (in alphabetical order) Steve Bird (Pacific Rim), Brian Clevinger (Atomic Robo), Sam Ellis (Archer), Dan Fogel (Fogel's Underground Price Guide and Grading Guide), Danielle Frazetta (Frazetta Books and Prints), Randy Green (Witchblade), Rick Ketcham (Amazing Spider-Man), Tom King (Grayson), Dan Nokes (Impossible Space Tales of The Last Pit Stop), Dan Parent (Archie), Alex Saviuk (Web of Spider-Man), Brian Shearer (GI Joe), Louis Small, Jr. (Vampirella), Rick Spears (The Auteur), Billy Tucci (Shi), J.C.

VA Comicon Welcomes Huge Cosplay Influx

The Overstreet Guide To Cosplay starts at The November 22-23 VA Comicon!

[Richmond, Virginia] "Over the past few years, both at our one-day shows and at our big two-day events, The Virginia Comicon has seen a tremendous surge in cosplayer attendance. In addition to our long running costume contests, we've offered free admission for cosplayers, we've offered special photo shoot opportunities, and we've even brought in top cosplay guests, but this year we're going to show the cosplay community a welcome like never before," said Brett Carreras, the show's promoter.

"At our November 22-23, 2014 show, not only are we featuring top cosplayers such as Ivy Doomkitty, Abby Normal and Patrick Ian Moore, and cosplay groups like The Clowns of Crime, but we're taking things to a proverbial whole new level. We have cosplay programming. We have $1,000 in cash prizes across a variety of costume categories for Sunday's costume contest. And we have cosplayer Eddie Newsome kicking off the brand new book project he's co-authoring, The Overstreet Guide To Cosplay, with the amazing opportunity to be featured in a photo shoot for this new book," he said.

Additionally, White Tiger Filmz will be on hand to document cosplay at the show for Viva La Cosplay, their new web series about the ins and outs, ups and downs of cosplaying. The locally-based crew will be following a number of cosplayers, including last year's Virginia Comicon Grand Prize winner, as they prepare for the show and participate in it. The first episode is already online. The filmmakers will also be cosplaying Ghostbusters Saturday at the event.

The Overstreet Guide To Cosplay, with Newsome and co-writer Geppi's Entertainment Museum President Melissa Bowersox heading up a team of contributors, is slated for a November 2015 release. Along with tons of photos, it will feature the ins and outs of designing, making and taking care of costumes. It will also address many of the issues facing cosplayers as the phenomenon continues to grow.

The book will join Gemstone Publishing's growing "How To" series, which includes The Overstreet Guide To Collecting Comics and The Overstreet Guide To Collecting Comic & Animation Art, with The Overstreet Guide To Grading Comics due this November. Members of the Gemstone Publishing team, including Vice-President of Publishing J.C. Vaughn and Creative Director Mark Huesman will be in attendance, as will Geppi's Entertainment Museum's Michael Solof and Kevin Brennan.

A large number of cosplayers will be pictured in this first-of-its-kind Overstreet volume, but only a limited number of cosplayers will selected to be interviewed and extensively featured in the book. Full rules for entering the photo shoot will be posted soon on the Virginia Comicon's website. No purchase is required to appear, but participants are urged to make a $5 donation to The Hero Initiative, which will also be at the show.

"We're so pleased to have Eddie Newsome as a guest and to have the kickoff for The Overstreet Guide To Cosplay here in Richmond. It's going to be an incredible resource. Not only will this book be a fantastic way for cosplayers to share their stories and their work, it's scheduled to be released at our show in 2015!" Carreras said.

Wolverine co-creator and veteran Incredible Hulk artist Herb Trimpe, longtime G.I. Joe writer-artist Larry Hama, and Nexus co-creator and artist Steve Rude head up a guest roster that also includes (in alphabetical order) Steve Bird (Pacific Rim), Brian Clevinger (Atomic Robo), Sam Ellis (Archer), Dan Fogel (Fogel's Underground Price Guide and Grading Guide), Danielle Frazetta (Frazetta Books and Prints), Randy Green (Witchblade), Rick Ketcham (Amazing Spider-Man), Tom King (Grayson), Dan Nokes (Impossible Space Tales of The Last Pit Stop), Dan Parent (Archie), Alex Saviuk (Web of Spider-Man), Brian Shearer (GI Joe), Matt Slay (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Louis Small, Jr. (Vampirella), Rick Spears (The Auteur), Billy Tucci (Shi), and John "Waki" Wycough (Vitriol). Additional guests will be added soon.

The Virginia Comicon's two-day show will be held Saturday and Sunday, November 22-23, 2014 at the Richmond International Raceway, 602 E Laburnum Ave, Richmond, VA 23222. VIP and MegaVIP tickets are available online. The show has a full slate of independent comic book creators, horror TV legend Count Gore DeVol, film and TV replica cars, media guests, and much more. There will be panel discussions and more. The show's first exclusives, special red foil logo (1,000 copies) and gold foil logo (only 250 copies) show exclusive variants of IDW Publishing's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters #1, were announced last week. Please check the show's site and Facebook page for regular updates.

VA Comicon Welcomes Superstar Artist Jae Lee
The Inhumans, The Dark Tower, Batman/Superman

[Richmond, Virginia] "Since we've had our two-day shows, fans in the Richmond area have asked us to get Jae Lee as one of our creator guests for the Virginia Comicon. This year, I'm happy to say we're answering those requests with a resounding 'Yes!" said show promoter Brett Carreras.

Jae Lee first rose to prominence illustrating Namor, The Sub-mariner at Marvel and WildC.A.T.S Trilogy at Image, then scored his first huge hit with The Inhumans, on which he collaborated with writer Paul Jenkins for Marvel's Marvel Knights imprint. It's critical and financial success vaulted him to superstar status, leading to numerous cover gigs, work on Stephen King's The Dark Tower series, and eventually more recent stints on Before Watchmen: Ozymandias and Batman/Superman.

The Virginia Comicon's two-day show will be held Saturday and Sunday, November 22-23, 2014 at the Richmond International Raceway, 602 E Laburnum Ave, Richmond, VA 23222. VIP and MegaVIP tickets are available online.

"From his interior work on projects like The Inhumans and Batman/Superman and his creator-owned Hellshock, to his diverse covers for the likes of DC's Manhunter, Dyanmite's Dead Irons and even Realm Press' Battlestar Galactica, his distinct artwork has reached millions of fans. We're so happy to finally be able to bring Jae Lee to the Virginia Comicon." Carreras said.

"I am excited to make the VA Comicon my first East Coast convention appearance since 2007. I'm thrilled to be returning to my home state," said Jae Lee, whose last trip east was the 2007 New York Comic Con.

year. He will be accepting a limited number of quick sketch commissions at the show.

Writer-Artist Billy Tucci Joins VA Comicon

Shi, Sgt. Rock, A Child Is Born Creator Showcases New Projects

[Richmond, Virginia] Billy Tucci, the award-winning writer-artist behind DC's Sgt. Rock: The Lost Battalion and creator of such diverse offerings as Shi: The Way of the Warrior and A Child Is Born is set to return to the Virginia Comicon's two-day show, Saturday and Sunday, November 22-23, 2014 at the Richmond International Raceway, 602 E Laburnum Ave, Richmond, VA 23222. It will mark his first appearance at the show in several years.

Tucci first broke into the big leagues with his self-published Shi: The Way of the Warrior #1 in 1994. From that launch, more than four million Shi comics have been sold worldwide, along with a vast array of related merchandise. In addition to the original series, spin-offs have included Tomoe, Shi: Senryaku, Shi: Rekiahi, Shi: Black, White and Red, Shi: Heaven and Earth, Shi: Ju-Nen, and numerous other one-shots and mini-series. The character has crossed over with Daredevil, Vampirella, and Cyblade, as well as many other characters.

In Shi: Senryaku, a mini-series written by frequent Tucci collaborator and Virginia Comicon guest Gary Cohn, the title character was illustrated with a proverbial Who's Who of top comic industry talent including Jim Lee, Joe Quesada, Jimmy Palmiotti, Geoff Darrow, Dave Sim, Jeff Smith, Jae Lee, Jim Balent, Dan Jurgens, George Pérez, Julie Bell, David Mack, Stan Sakai, Terry Moore, and Adam Hughes, was well as other comic book titans.

Tucci's award-winning, highly researched labor of love, Sgt. Rock: The Lost Battalion featured his take of real life events involving members of the highly decorated 442nd Regimental Combat Team, a unit comprised of Americans of Japanese descent who were not permitted to serve in the Pacific. The acclaimed work featured Sgt. Rock and the men of Easy Company interacting with real members of the 442nd in stunning detail. Many survivors have attended an array of conventions with Tucci following its release.

Among his other work since then, Tucci also drew praise for A Child Is Born, his personal interpretation of the Christmas story. Beautifully illustrated, it is based on the Gospels of Mathew and Luke.

"We're really pleased to have Billy Tucci back in Richmond," said show promoter Brett Carreras. "He'll be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Shi and talking about his new project, The Boys of Company Z, and the fans in this area just love him."

Tucci is part of an impressive line-up of comic book talent. Guest of Honor Jae Lee (Before Watchmen: Ozymandius ) and Special Guests Larry Hama (G.I. Joe), Steve Rude (Nexus) and Herb Trimpe (Incredible Hulk) lead a roster of top creators scheduled to attend the show including in alphabetical order, Steve Bird (Pacific Rim), Brian Clevinger (Atomic Robo), Gary Cohn (Blue Devil), Paris Cullins (Blue Devil), Sam Ellis (Archer), Dan Fogel (Fogel's Underground Price Guide and Grading Guide), Danielle Frazetta (Frazetta books and prints), Randy Green (Witchblade), Rick Ketcham (Amazing Spider-Man), Tom King (Grayson), Greg LaRocque (The Flash: The Return of Barry Allen), Dan Nokes (Impossible Space Tales of The Last Pit Stop), Dan Parent (Archie), Alex Saviuk (Web of Spider-Man), Brian Shearer (GI Joe), Matt Slay (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Louis Small, Jr. (Vampirella), Rick Spears (The Auteur), J.C. Vaughn (Shi: Ju-Nen), Neil Vokes (Robotech), and John "Waki" Wycough (Vitriol). Additional guests will be added soon.

The cosplay component of the weekend will be the biggest in the show's storied history. With the presence of top cosplayers such as Ivy Doomkitty, Abby Normal and Patrick Ian Moore, and cosplay groups like Mad Love, there's also $1,000 in cash prizes across a variety of costume categories for Sunday's costume contest. It will also feature the launch of Gemstone Publishing's The Overstreet Guide To Cosplay, with cosplayers having the chance to be featured in the book. White Tiger Filmz's Viva La Cosplay, their new web series about the ins and outs, ups and downs of cosplaying, will be on hand. In the series, the locally-based crew is following a number of cosplayers, including last year's Virginia Comicon Grand Prize winner, as they prepare for the show and participate in this year's. The fifth episode has just posted and the series is now set to air locally on Richmond's affiliate of The CW.

The show has a full slate of independent comic book creators, cosplay guests, horror TV legend Count Gore DeVol, film and TV replica cars, media guests, and much more. There will be panel discussions, a costume contest, and more. Additional guests will be added soon. Please check the show's site and Facebook page for regular updates. VIP Two-Day and One-Day tickets are now available online. A list of show exclusive variant covers and other material will be announced shortly. The MegaVIP passes are sold out.
