Brant noticed a post over on Digital Webbing that says good things about the way creators are being treated at this year's San Diego show...

"I was just looking at the San Diego Comic Con map on their site and noticed that Artist Alley has been moved to the front of the convention. Thats really interesting, hopefully traffic will start earlier for those in Artist Alley rather than wait till Mid day for any activity to happen."

Pretty cool!

Apparently the OP on Digital Webbing doesn't know how to read a map, because Artist's Alley is nowhere near the front entrance of the show. They're located in the far left wing of the show, in the 5000 aisles. Yes, they're 'up front' left corner, but frankly the center stage stuff, where 99% of the people enter the show (Aisles 2300-3200), has no artists near it whatsoever. It's all TV and Film companies and the key publishers who have that section.

What's actually located at the official front entrance doors of the show are Hasbro, Lucasfilm, Disney, Dark Horse, Viz Media, Konami, and Nickelodeon. Just behind them in the aisles are are CBS, Funimation, Square Enix, Lego, Mattel, Image, DC, Marvel...

And Artists Alley is on the completely opposite end of the show to the Small Press Exhibitors, and they pretty much only have their 'star' guests in Artists Alley, and the rest will presumably have to be in Small Press, which is located in the back middle right of the floor, by the Bayside Lobby doors.

To boot, to get to Artist's Alley, you have to pass through the all the PAID artists booths first, which is something like 15 aisles of illustrators, sculptors, toymakers, etc... - talent who are probably just as worthy of one's attentions, if not moreso.

I'm not saying people won't get to AA before spending all their money, but by no means is the convention offering creators any better treatment than usual.
