C2E2 Photo Roundup: The Creators [C2E2]
Even though costumed con goers may seem like the most camera-ready segment of comics culture, the creators of the funnybooks themselves seem to dig their own closeups now and again. It's a good thing too, because walking through C2E2's Artist Alley and assorted publisher booths might have made for a pretty bland experience if not for creators' uncanny ability to sense even the most candid photography equipment from afar.
After the jump, see what some of your favorite creators and other folks from around the industry got up to during C2E2's appointed hours of operation. It's almost like being there, only nobody can cut you in line for a ($6) Chicago-style hot dog in the food court.
