ComiCon comes to Mohegan Sun

UNCASVILLE, Conn. (WTNH) — ComiCon kicked off at Mohegan Sun on Friday. The event is known for comic book enthusiasts, but it’s also a place for comic legends to share their knowledge with up-and-coming talent.

“Fortunately I could draw, and fortunately they gave me money at a really early time, so I said ‘sure, I’ll do that,'” said Neal Adams, a comic book artist, writer, editor, publisher, and lover. “As long as they keep on giving me money, I’m going to be drawing comic books.”

“I’ve been involved with comic books, art, since I was like seven-years old,” said another person at the event. “I want to do comic books. I want to do sculptures, I want to do 3-D animation. That’s what I want to do.”

“The legendary Neal Adams. I wanted to show Neal my work. I got lucky today,” he said. “What he said was the truth.”
