In the deviantART booth, we witnessed something a little magical when the voice came over the loudspeaker to announce that Comic-Con was closed at 5:00 pm sharp, the remaining straggling attendees and exhibitors packing up stopped what they were doing and burst into applause. It was a mixture of relief, pride, and fulfillment of a successful convention.
Someone yelled, "See you in 365 days!" and there was a true moment of community with everyone in earshot. Sure, it's a sad sentiment, but it gives us all something to look forward to, and the months ahead will be filled with the happy memories of all we accomplished over the past week. Friends met that stop by every year, new friends, new properties to become fans of, new comic books to read and prints to hang on walls. It was truly an honor to have shared the past 5 days with everyone who stopped by our booth and anyone who wasn't able to make it but who have been following us on social media to share these special moments with us in the best way they can.
Thanks to everyone for making this week such a special, magical thing to be a part of. Until next year, everyone!
