Big Wow! Comic Fest 2015:
A Convention For Artists

Posted 5/12/2015

As the big conventions have shifted focus to "the popular arts," Big Wow has managed to grow while still remembering exactly why we're all there -- it's the comics. It's the artists, the people creating the books that inspired the cosplay, the toys, and often the TV shows and movies.

Though 2016 will bring about some changes as Big Wow becomes the Silicon Valley Comic Con, we can hope that the heart of what Steve Wyatt started will remain. It was intended first and foremost as a celebration of comics, and the talent that comes to San Jose to attend reflects that.

Of course, not all have to travel far, because the Silicon Valley really is a hotbed of creators. Ric Bretschneider managed to catch several of them before the Fest got too crowded on Saturday morning. But when we say crowded, we really mean thriving. Because people wanted to meet the artists -- and here they are for you.
