Electric City Comic Con

Guests 2017


Artists Alley

These talented artists and authors will be located inside the library in "Artists Alley." Stop-by to meet them, purchase their books, get them signed and chat with these amazing artists! You can see many of our artists at various workshops and programs throughout the day as well.

Tom Eaton

Tom Eaton is a Brooklyn-based cartoonist and animator, and creator of the Bug Zapper, a comic for kids. Past projects include original animated shorts and music videos for Sufjan Stevens and the Danielson Famile.

Mitra Farmand

Mitra Farmand is a cartoonist from Brookline, Massachusetts. In 2013 she graduated from The Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, VT, so don’t worry, she’s certified to draw cartoons. She's had two cartoons published in The New Yorker, which is the sort of thing one puts in a bio. She looks like a cat-owning vegetarian, but she is neither of those things.

Shane Moore

Schenectady resident, artist and co-founder of Electro-Magnetic Press. Shane does the art for the comic series “The Omens." The first comic in his new series “Empire Comics” was recently published. Shane is also the artist who created our Electric City Comic Con mascot: Voltage

Crispin Wood

Crispin Wood has been drawing comics for ages. His comic Rock School appeared in a monthly New England music periodical called The Noise from 1992 until 2015. In 2013, Crispin started a webcomic called Small Blue Yonder. People seem to like it. Check it out - it's family-friendly!

Friends of the Schenectady County Public Library

The Friends of the library fund raise and support all public programming at SCPL (among many other things!) Their efforts made our Comic Con possible. They will be selling fantasy, manga, science fiction and other used books to help raise funds for the library. The friends also run the popular Whitney Book Corner used book store on the corner of Union and Clinton St.
