The best thing about the Brooklyn Fest and the reason it's the only comic show worth going to in the USA is because awesome artists and friends come to the same spot and we all get to spend time together in real flesh life, everyone gets to hang out and smell each other, it's so much better than the internet!
Ryan our man-in-japan asked me to take some pictures at the show, i was too overwhelmed and basically failed at documenting the show, i managed to take the three snaps below, whoops, sorry Ryan :(

Anyway, the after party is always a total blast. Bill Kartalopoulos and Lizz Hickey do it up. Last year was all about the Pork Slap, this year: Brooklyn Brews, flavored vodka, and specialty Brinkman and Rege beers, whoooo! Lots of funny conversations, talkin about relationships, having a partner that can enjoy comics is essential! Everyone was powering down from the intensity of the show. Here's the inside scoop on the party.

During the party it appeared that someone had stolen Conor's jacket, cellphone, and car keys...
Totally freaked out we went into Party Patrol mode and got down to some detective business,
long story short, Jesse McManus stole Conor's stuff!
