SoonerCon is just kicking off at the Reed Center in Midwest City. The following are a few notes about local artists and comic creators' plans for the show:

Artist Matthew Brendle: "I'm sharing a table and selling original colored pencil pieces. Maybe some sketch cards too."

Artist Ellis Goodson: Goodson will have a new sketchbook on hand while supplies last. More details:

Writer/artist Scott Cosby: "I'll be representing Cremona Publishing (Celtic Knights and Tim & Lynne) as well as my own artwork. Debuting my completely digital "Space Art" at SoonerCon25. I might even mention my Sci-Fi comic I'm writing and illustrating myself too."  More info:!scott-cosby/ljbhk
