My visit of the Comic Con Stuttgart 2019

Since I didn’t want to push down my post about the planned Gaia anthology after just a day, I waited a couple of days before posting the following report about my visit of the Comic Con in Stuttgart:

After my visits in 2016, 2017 and 2018, I also visited the Comic Con Germany in Stuttgart last weekend. It was once again a lot of fun. This time I focused on buying original artwork and chatting with fellow German comic artists. Like always, I also saw an enormous number of cosplayers with great costumes. In this post, you can have a look at all the photos I took with some added commentary. You can click on each photo to see a larger version of it. The article contains the following sections:

Artwork I bought

I’m always happy to see raccoons in artwork. I can’t make out the signature, though. It looks like “Seff”, but that does nor sound like a real name nor like a nickname. Goddamnit, artists, how hard is it to put a legible name on your drawings?!

A fantastic bird by Mandy Frank:

A sword by Mandy Frank that goes very nicely with the bird regarding its layout, style and coloration:

A lovely drawing of two girls in manga style. Without any signature, though. Sigh.

A lovely drawing of a red fox by Cleo-San and four funny monster drawings by Stella Bialek. Unfortunately, I placed one of the wrong way when taking the photo:

Since I still have so many unread comics at home, I bought only one comic, a very nicely drawn fantasy comic:

Artist Florian Biege also drew a great sketch into the book:

Cosplay I saw

The dinosaur was at the con again, and again he drew a large crowd wherever he went:

I finally saw a Megumin from KonoSuba! Yay! Too bad she was missing her signature hat. It would have made her costume perfect:

Yuna from Final Fantasy X:

Pickle Rick?

Toy Story characters:

The medusa costume was impressive:

This does not look very practical. So I guess the character is either from Star Wars, from an anime or a Japanese video game:

The Star Wars area was full of semi-professional cosplayers:

I think this one said that his character isn’t based on any existing property:

Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl. Hit-Girl is one of my favorite characters so I was very excited so see her:

This Deadpool danced to music he played on his portable music player:

My mother is a big fan of I Dream of Jeannie so she like this photo in particular. To bad that the guy’s head does not look like that of Major Tony Nelson at all:

A very convincing Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter:

Purpur tentacle from the classic adventure game Day of the Tentacle:
