So this past weekend we made our VERY FIRST comic con appearance as Zindan and it was amaaaaazing! As you may have seen from the posts leading up to special edition weekend we printed out 3000+ prints for promotions (Huge thanks to absolutecolor.com and tristaroffset). At the con we got a very warm welcome despite showing up an hour and some change late. We quickly got our booth set up and started our hustle. Initially a lot of people were hesitent to take prints as if free didn't really mean free. Eventually people started getting more comfortable and a lot appreciated the fact that we were working hard to win them over. We met some great comic book fans and hope that they will choose to follow our series when our first issue comes out later in august.
We also met some amazing artists near by: Sean Douglas, Danielle Otrakji, Keyla Valerio. Check them out!
Ok enough talk...here are the pictures:

Sean Douglas going in. @doulsea
This guy is probably one of the most animated artists I've seen. When he creates art it's a performance. At one point he was sharpening pencils with his teeth, testing paints on his skin, painting on the floor.
And there he is on the floor.
Very humble dude.
Clearly he doesn't like being in front of the camera.
Chris Claremont. E'nuff said.
Staff trying on some mughal armor.
Keyla @kthecosmonaut doing some character designs. She's great with female characters.
Coming together nicely.
Starting to look like Tara.
Khaula our editor joins the party.
