Comic art is pretty much the biggest reason that the comics industry is so vibrant and thriving these days. The combination of image and storytelling gives comic books their own unique angle as a storytelling medium.
Over 50 artists are coming together for the MINTcondition art show to not only express their love of all things comics related, but to give comic art their own unique artistic interpretation. This means that not only will there be canvas work at the Emerald City Comiccon in Seattle, but other forms of comic art, such as plushie stuffed creations and artistic mashups of different genres and properties. It's neat that such an artistic genre is expanded and compeimented by extremely talented fans putting their own spin on the stories, characters and properties.
