The Con Haul: Three Great Comics From New York Comic-Con’s Artists Alley [NYCC 2013]

Conhaul01

For all the flaws it might have, New York Comic-Con has one very, very important thing going for it: A gigantic, well-organized Artists Alley that takes up an entire convention hall all by itself, full of amazing creators showing off their newest comics.
