Saratoga Springs Comicon 2007 -- The first of what is hoped to be an annual series of comic book conventions was held today at the Saratoga Springs City Center. I brought along my digital camera, so here are some images from the event. Click the pictures to open a larger version.



A good-sized crowd browsed the tables all afternoon.



My daughter Kira and her friend Connie meet a local author.



I'm not sure who gave better tips to whom.



Another view of the tables.



My son Aaron browses original art for sale.



Some colourful DC recreations/reimaginings were on sale.



More of those.



Best friends at the end of our day at the con.

The City Center's capacity of 2,500 was not sorely tested by the crowds we saw, but the attendance seemed encouraging to me. I hope the event comes back for a second year in 2008, because our area of upstate New York is sorely lacking in comics-related events, but has plenty of people interested in coming out to socialize and spend money.
