2014 Erlangen Comic Salon remembered

Part 1 of this trip is a wrap! I love doing this show for a variety of reasons: There are always fantastic art exhibits (perhaps mine is one of them!), 
always good biz, great people (some of whom I only see at this show), and it's always the best time of year to visit Bavaria! My dear friend Christoph (he and wife Bernadette are my gracious hosts while in Munich) comes with me to lend a very helpful hand at the show. 
I had a fabulous selection of art for this show with all most if not all of the super stars of the underground and alt comix world: R Crumb, Robert Williams, Spain Rodriguez, S. Clay Wilson, Vaughn Bode, Kim Deitch, Jay Lynch, Gilbert Shelton, Rick Griffin & Skip Williamson... with some Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko and Wally Wood and Jack Davis thrown in the mix. Of course there's more! Chris Ware, Daniel Clowes, Jeffrey Brown, Jaime Hernandez & Gilbert Hernandez, Gary Panter, Joe Matt, Ashley Wood, Ivan Brunetti, Kent Williams, Johnny Ryan, Tony Millionaire, Dave Cooper, Teddy Kristiansen, Paul Hornschemeier, Steven Weissman, Dave McKean, , , and some additional stellar surprises like Basil Wolverton, Winsor McKay, Richard Corben, David Lapham, Alex Toth, Simon Bisley and lots more....

And so, there were so many art exhibits, it's a real pity i couldn't see them all (I am working after all!!), but i was lucky enough to see a few and the show of Atak's work was stellar!
So, all in all it was a great time seeing friends (Hi Marc Mokken), doing biz, eating very well every nite, and enjoying the ambiance and great vibes of this show again.
