Garden State Comic Fest (GSCF) 2017 is in the books. The cozy convention located at the Mennen Arena in Morristown, NJ provided a fantastic array of options for fans of all types. From collectors and cosplayers to creators and confections, there was surely something to strike your fancy. And oh yes, Superman, Dean Cain and The Flash, John Wesley Shipp, were on hand to greet all with their big superhero smiles.

Providing the Comic Con-nection
Garden State Comic Fest did a terrific job of delivering a solid comic con experience. Hard core comic book fans had their hands full searching through the endless selections provided by a wide variety of comic vendors. Creativity shined as cosplayers stepped out in heroic style. Artfulness was abounding with skilled creators displaying some truly stunning work. I was thrilled to finally meet the lovely and incredibly talented Bella Rachlin. Up until GSCF I had only admired her work on Instagram, it was an honor to speak with her in person. Thank you Bella! And, as always, I am happy to connect with those artists that have become part of my ever expanding ‘con family’. Yours truly may have even picked up yet another commission thanks to the talented and ever charismatic, Chris Campana.

In addition to the endless creativity, GSCF provided several entertaining panels located right on the convention floor. Convenient panel positioning enabled fans, myself included, the ability to catch some fascinating discussions, Q&As and contests without missing any action. This may not seem like a big deal to some, but for a fan that wants to catch as much as possible, location is key. Too often I have missed a panel because I simply had no time to reach it. So I thank you Garden State Comic Fest!

For those fans looking to pick up some cool trinkets, a treasured collectible or simply a bite to eat, GSCF had a merchant to fit all your needs. I definitely appreciated the coffee sampling supplied by Deadly Grounds Coffee; not only did I get a boost, it was delicious and went well the treats I bought from The Chocolate Art Gallery. Thank goodness I’m a fitness trainer. Edibles aside, there were many other cool items to check out; jewelry, clothing, toys, and books to name just a few.
Lots to see at Garden State Comic Fest. Credit: Linda Marie
