This was our third year attending NC Comicon (2015, 2016 and 2018) and every year they raise the bar and continue to make this con the most inviting and welcoming con experience I have ever had- and the best part? You get to spend three glorious days with Gerard and surrounded by incredible art and extremely talented creators. If I lived closer to this con I would go every year no matter the guest list!
So let’s get started with the recap! The con kicked off on Friday afternoon with a large crowd waiting in line eager to start their con experience!
Just 10 minutes til doors and the line to get in is already wrapping around most of inside! pic.twitter.com/jZ15DTmgAA
Once through the doors we were able to check in as VIP and get our Umbrella Academy swag bags!
On Wednesday 9/6/17 Gerard Way, Jody Houser, Jon Rivera and Cecil Castellucci joined Amy Dallen for Geek & Sundry’s The Wednesday Club where they discussed the imprint and went from book to book detailing just what it is and what we can expect to see coming in the future.
We did our best to live tweet the event. Here are some highlights.
As we announced on Aug. 29th, 2017, Skylight Books hosted a panel & signing with the writers of Young Animal.

Due to a strict No Photos rule we don’t have much in the way of photographs to show you. But fortunately our friend, Krista, was able to record the audio from the panel and snag a picture with the man himself, Gerard Way.
