There seems to be some interest in a Watchmen convention in the New York City area. Let's use this thread to discuss what this event would be, who would we want as far as speakers, etc. If I can get a real handle on what this would take, I'll make this a Kickstarter project and try to get it actually off the ground.

Like I said on the Facebook post, I will not only attend, but if it's feasible or I can have the expenses covered, I would have my WATCHMEN memorabilia on display there.

We may as well start with those whom we know are friendly to us and the site. Dave Gibbons is a given, though it might be worth asking Larry Fong and Jay Brazeau to attend as well. If we can reach out to Len Wein or John Higgins, that'd be awesome as well.

If he's not out of the country or otherwise busy Clay Enos would probably stop by.

That would be amazing, there's no way i could go but, I'd totally pledge a little if it were on KS, for maybe some memorabilia.

It might be worth contacting people like the guys that did the Lovecraft convention in RI, on Kickstarter.

This is a fantastic idea. I'd pledge some money as well and most certainly attend.

This. I would most definitely attend.
Also, I may be coming to new york anyways.
I know I've said that like fifty times, which is why I said "may" and not definitely, but I think I could make it.
We should also host a screening of the WCM cut if that's possible.
Possibly also a costume contest?
I also volunteer to design the flyers and promo shiz.
I love doing that stuff.
