If you like automotive trade fairs, then Comic Con will be right up your alley. Though it's a different product, you'll undoubtedly experience the same level of crass commercialism; those wishing to purchase figurines, video games, or benign swords of some kind will have their pick of products. Sadly however, there are increasingly fewer reasons for artists to attend this fair. Whatever art is there is near impossible to spot through the crap, and I'm told, those interested in the medium should attend MOCCA this coming June, a festival with a little more focus on the craft as opposed to its sale and marketing.
Having said all this, given the increased popularity of art and comic book fairs, and what appears to be some cross over between these two fields, I thought it might be interesting to run a survey asking readers to identify these two demographics by pictures alone. See how well you do, and well discuss the results in the next few days.
