Mission Valley pop culture party wraps it up

The second annual ComicFest wrapped up on October 6 at the Town and Country Resort Hotel and Convention Center.

This year’s 3-day event featured sci-fi author Larry Niven, whose storied career is celebrated at an on-site coffeshop and snack bar, Draco Tavern, “Earth’s first multi-species coffee bar,” patterned after the watering hole from his same-named novel and designed by special FX whiz Wendy All.

Sunday’s guests featured local comic artist Billy Martinez doing live art demonstrations, and also local artist Mike Miller, best known for DC’s Injustice: Gods Among Us (#1 selling digital comic in the world) and the cover artist for the graphic novel edition of A Game of Thrones.

Another famed local at the show was special effects artist Phil Tippett, best known for his work on the Star Wars franchise.
