WiK is on the road again to scan more Kirby original art for the Jack Kirby Original Art Digital Archive and the Gallery section of WiK. I'll be set up with scanner at Bechara Maalouf's Nostalgic Collectables, booth #2734 at the New York Comic Con from Friday, October 8 through Sunday, October 10, 2010 at the Jacob K. Javits Center, 655 West 34th Street in Midtown Manhattan. In addition, Rand Hoppe of The Jack Kirby Museum will share booth #532 with the Sequential Artist, LLC to also scan original comic art for the archive.
The Comic Art Convention was held last Sunday, September 12th at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Secaucus, NJ. This exclusively comic art show is unique and happens yearly. It is a great environment to talk to dealers and discuss comic art without all the hustle and bustle of a large convention. Attendance is small but intimate in a small conference room, packed with some of the best comic art dealers in the industry, some only come to this event.
So you've found a beautiful Kirby comic art page in the Gallery section and you want to leave a comment but you don't want to keep going back to see if some other member responded to your comment. Now you can subscribe to a comic art page and receive any new posted comments other WiK member leave. Start a conversation. When you signup for a new feature call "Suscriptions," you will receive emails when new comments are added. In the Gallery section, the "Subscription" link can be found above the comment entry form, underneath the comic art page scans.
WiK will be attending the Comic Art Con, “The First Exclusive Comic Art Convention,” in Secaucus, NJ on September 12th, 10AM to 4PM. I will be set up with scanner at Bechara Maalouf, Nostalgic Collectables to scan as much Kirby comic art as time permits for the Jack Kirby Museum's Original Art Digital Archive and this site. If you are a collector with Kirby comic art and plan to attend, please stop by and have it archived or just to say hello.
With the launch of the new What if Kirby, I've been using Twitter to "tweet" out a selection from the gallery everyday. These tweets are called Wikpik. In some cases it is a comic art page of historical significance, in other cases its a comic art page I just added to the gallery. To receive these tweets you will need an account with the social network site, Twitter.
