JeffBSpidey2BCC has come and gone for another year! I had the thrilling pleasure of attending for a third time.  Bellingham Comic-con has had a long running tradition of being a good classic con full of bin diving and numerous trips down rows of artists.

As always, Eric Burris and BCC have put together a great day of comic book fun. Whether you’re looking for that missing piece to a collection or a whole run of back issues, the many local vendors are sure to have something you just can’t leave without. If prints are on your hunt list, the alley, full of artists, is the place to be. With talents from all different spectrums of the comic book universe, you won’t ever be disappointed. (more…)
