But this was not the case.
The energy in the air continued to carry over from the day before as people moved about with purpose, their spirits high and a spring in their step. While the morning started off a little slow, it did not take long to see the autograph lines pick up just moments before the exhibit hall became the primary hub of activity.
What made this day unique was that the glow from spending time at Denver’s First Comic Con continued to radiate as we all realized that at long last, we had a convention of our own.
Yet as the day continued along a foreboding chill began to fill the air as the end of the con drew near.
This was a con that it seems no one wanted to end. The reward of our patience to finally see a convention this big grace our fair city made its conclusion just that much harder to swallow. But the announcement that Stan Lee was the first signed guest made the pain of saying goodbye a little easier as since despite the fact that tomorrow will not include any insight from our favorite stars, or the opportunity to talk shop with the greats of comic book art, next year will be here sooner than we know it and the wait will be over once again.
With a first year convention running this smooth, with this many people in attendance, the bar has been set, the challenge laid down and there is no doubt in my mind that Denver Comic Con will rise to it and top our expectations the next time around.
