For the last 10 years or so the National Cartoonists Society has had a terrific booth at San Diego Comic-Con, but has appeared at no other comic conventions around the country. Thanks to a joint effort from the NCS and our charitable arm, the National Cartoonists Society Foundation, we are stepping up our game in the convention world!
As part of its mission of outreach to industry professionals and the general public, the NCS will start having a presence at several other major comic conventions, starting next month at the New York Comic Con. The NCS will have a booth at NYCC, and local members will be making appearances there to meet and greet the attendees, sign autographs, sell stuff and otherwise promote the NCS and the art of cartooning. The NCS will also be selling it’s popular Comic-Con T-shirts onsite, including our 2104 “Batman” themed shirt, as well as giving away the inaugural copy of our new magazine “National cartoonist” absolutely free!
If you are planning on attending the New York Comic-Con, look us up and come by and say ehllo! We’ll be posting a list of cartoonists and their appearance times here on the website in the next few weeks.
NCS membership is open to all creative professionals who earn a substantial part of their income working in the fields of cartooning, illustration, animation and graphic storytelling. We are an organization of esteemed peers and we welcome new members!
