Fanboys (and fangirls, for that matter) take note: New York Comic Con 2009 kicks off on February 6 at the Jacob Javitz Center, bringing with it an exciting new generation of artists, illustrators, and graphic designers, including Yoshitaka Amano, Arthur Suydam [featured above], Steve Niles, and David Hine. Comics and graphic novels have come a long way since the old comic strip days, and the influx of international talent in the industry, along with the concentration by publishers on creating more visually compelling books, means that this annual event is no longer just for fanboys. In theory anyway! Now, ladies and gentelemen, is there a Rubberman in the house?
