In a public post on Facebook, X-Men and Spider-Man artist and creator of Crimson, Out There and Revelations, Humberto Ramos talked about his love of America as a Mexican and his horror when watching the election of Donald Trump as President. He specifically talked about Trump's attitude to Mexico and Mexicans. You can read the full post here.

But as a result, he has chosen to change the shows he attends in the USA, making decisions that will depend upon how the state in which it takes place voted. He wrote,

I want to communicate that for at least the next 4 years I decide NOT to attend to any conventions that take place in the red states, those states who voted for Mr. Trump, those states where I am clearly not welcome.

For the fans. I ask your understanding and support. Hey, we can meet in many shows across your beautiful country but please understand I can't go to a house I'm not being invited, the vote clearly says that.
And no, I'm not against the republicans and their political agenda I am taking this decision because this particular candidate and now elected president clearly pointed at me, this one person these states voted for.

This is not a political statement is just me trying to explain a decision I took in order to show respect to myself, my family and friends, this is not a movement, it's a very personal decision and I wish…. I hope you respect it.

As I said before, you can read the full post here.

This would mean Ramos could attend San Diego Comic Con, C2E2 and New York Comic Con. But not Amazing Arizona Con, North Carolina Comic Con or Tampa Bay Comic Con.
