There was a comic mag contest called "Comic Clash" too, where the mag Oh Magazin of my mate Lew won the 1. place, yeeh!
And of course I bought some great stuff: The District 9 Art/Conceptbook, the limited movie 'Brain Work Melt' with small artbook, great postcards and Moebius' ARZACH (hell yes!).
I also got a bunch of reading samples, smaller comics and comic compilations.
While I've seen a hell load of comics I additionally met new cool people and I think, if you are a comic artist this event is a must to get rid of your copies, earn some money and tie new contacts.
I really recommend this to everyone who is able to get there.
