KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Bob Wayne

 


bobwayne


Besides his role as Senior Vice-President of Sales at DC Entertainment for many years, Bob is a life-long fan of comics, a published author, a business consultant specializing in the publishing industry, an advisor to the CBLDF, and a great friend to comic retailers. He’s also been a comics and science fiction convention dealer and a retail store owner. 


In 2012 Bob Wayne received the ComicsPRO Industry Appreciation Award. Founding ComicsPRO President Joe Field noted at the time: “I would venture to say that no one in this room knows more about comics or the comics industry than Bob Wayne.”
