I am currently attending Boston Comic Con, which runs from August 11th-13th.
As I sit and wait to be let into the theater for the first panel on the main stage, Stan Lee, who will be on in 2 1/2 hours, I am posting my first impressions of a FanExpo show.
There were assortment of passes available from single day to family passes. I purchased the lowest level of multi-day pass, which cost $97. This allowed me onto the floor 2 hours earlier than the single day passes.
While the sale floor is generally larger then last year, there seem to be fewer of the very small vendors. I am very pleasantly surprised by number of artists in Artist Alley.
There are also show exclusives; an ‘Angry Groot is the Funko Pop highlight.
For those of us who are familiar with the building used for NYCC’s Artist Alley, the hall used by FanExpo is about 3 times as large.
In conclusion, the line management I have seen so far is good. The lanes are taped off and there is a clear understanding of how to move people.
I’ll be exploring cosplaying and photo ops and autographing tomorrow. For tonight, I’m going to watch Stan the Man Lee, enjoy the art I purchased and attend the official party.
