They say a picture says a thousand words, and considering how much stuff happened today on day 2 of the Singapore Toy Games and Comics Convention…. they’d better. Because if they don’t we’ll need something like War and Peace to describe the concentrated awesomeness that happened in Singapore today.
Quick recap? Lot’s of signings, lots of sketchings, great great GREAT panels with creators of comics and toys alike. Matt Fraction and Salvador Larocca meeting for the first time in person! Oh, and STGCC volunteers apparently may be used by Marvel artists as weights. 😉
Bet you didn’t expect that from something that looked so quiet before opening, right?
That didn’t last for long though, what with the number of people streaming into the convention this morning.
Understandable though, considering the number of great people doing signings.
Some fans were also lucky enough to get sketches done by their favourite artists, like Simone Legno of Tokidoki fame (to be honest I have no idea who was the lucky sod that won that).
Turns out that there might be a price to pay for getting your sketches done though, and that’s to be used as cross training and weightlifting equipment! (No STGCC heroes were harmed in the making of this film)
Fans could also pick the brains of their favourite writers, artists or designers via interviews, or even face to face panel discussions with the fans.
Amazingly enough, Singapore was also the site where long time writer and artist duo Matt Fraction and Salvador Larocca got to meet! (Apologies for the poor photos, we only had an iphone present at the time)
The best part though, was that the fans got to meet the creators, the creators got to meet the fans, as well as each other, and everyone had a great GREAT time.
We’re looking forward to the last day of STGCC, and we’re looking forward to meeting all these great folks again next year.
