As promised here on ComicMix, cartoonist Mikhaela Reid has served up a terrific photo-review of this past weekend’s East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention on her blog, which has been justifiably linked to from lots of comics news sites. And here’s her Flickr page for even more. We like this one of Reid’s fiance Makesha Wood and ComicMix friend Kyle Baker:
In addition, Ormes Society founder Cheryl Lynn’s review of ECBACC is up now at PW, and includes news of 2008 plans:
"Convention organizer Maurice Waters is already planning for next year’s ECBACC, which may move to a larger venue to accommodate the rising number of attendees. Waters is also considering launching a West Coast Black Age of Comics Convention. However, next year’s East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention will remain in the heart of Philadelphia."
Cheryl also talks about the Kids’ Corner section of the convention, which sounds like it was terrific, but has nothing about female representation there. Surely she wasn’t the only sister? Then again, as she recently noted in her blog, "Are there any women of color attending the Women of Comics II event?"
