The Geekrican Project

The folks from Puerto Rico Comic Con have organized a small exhibit of geeky art by Puerto Rican artists celebrating Puerto Rican geeks or “Geekricans.” I stopped by and took some pictures to share. If you are in Puerto Rico, the exhibit will be open until May 15th at Artlab gallery, Calle Condado 306 in Santurce. Look for the red door.

This year PRCC will be held May 22-24 at the Puerto Rico Convention Center.

Free Comic Book Day at Metro Comics

This past weekend was the yearly Free Comic Book Day, when comic book stores around the world offer their customers special free editions of new comic books and usually have additional events, like artist signings and cosplayer groups. This year we stopped by Metro Comics at San Patricio Mall in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico. We arrived before opening which was a good thing because the line gets pretty long as the day goes by. The store is a pro at this day and has good crowd control so even though it’s a small shop it accommodated everyone and the wait wasn’t bad at all. They use the mall’s hallway for their extra events.

Some local artists were in attendance and I purchased some Puerto Rican comics and got them signed for no additional cost. One of the free comics from the States was in Spanish. It was Castilian Spanish though, which sometimes takes me out of the story because my brain isn’t used to it.

I had a great time as always. I didn’t take a lot of pictures this time but I’ll share what I have. I’ll write about my local comics haul this week, so see you soon!
