We had such a great time at Grand Rapids Comic Con this year.  Jeremiah, Tim, and Jared got in as press and met a lot of awesome people and had some really wonderful hoverhands-style moments. 

There were quite a few really amazing artists at the con, most of them local to Grand Rapids. Here's my list of All-Stars and how to find their work on the web.
