On Sunday we appeared at East Hanover Comic Book Expo, our first time at an expo in New Jersey! Having just finished two cons in New York – Anime Festival and Big Apple – it was refreshing being in a smaller, more relaxed environment. Among us were over 250,000 comics up for sale, and a close knit group of artists and collectors. Daxiong was the invited guest artist, thanks to John Paul, our generous host and the show promoter. He had said this to say:

“I have organized over 400 comic book conventions in Northern NJ during the past twenty years, with countless comic book professionals as guests. To say that I’m honored by Daxiong’s appearance at one of my events is a gross understatement.”

Well, we had a blast! Here are some commissions from the day – including Daxiong’s first ever drawing of Spiderman:

Daxiong adds that the kind-hearted people here in the U.S. have moved him deeply. He recalls that at the end of the expo, an elderly gentleman came by and said, “Thank you for your hard work in standing up for freedom. I’m also sorry for the persecution you had to go through.” Daxiong hopes to bring the splendor of genuine Chinese culture to the world.

Believe it or not, this was our last con of the year in the United States. Be sure to pick up some of this year’s favorites: DC’s Top 10, Justice League 80-Page Giant, and coming out Jan 20, 2010, “Star Wars Adventures: Luke Skywalker and the Treasure of the Dragonsnakes.”
