  • Dear Sweet Lord: Comicon International

    Tom Spurgeon has made pretty comprehensive guides to Comicon International in San Diego before, but apparently he’s decided to make the definitive, end-all, don’t-you-part-time-bloggers-even-bother-with-your-silly-convention-tips- Guide and Focal Point for the four-and-a-half day event. This is great for me; now I can direct any inquiries from fans or professionals to this place on the web, and they will absolutely get the lowdown for nearly any goals they have in attending the show. Really, it covers EVERYTHING. Yes, that too, whatever you were thinking of. You can even simulate the con experience just by reading the whole thing. At the end you can go lie in a dark hotel room with a washcloth over your eyes, taking ibuprofen and not returning phone calls for few days, it’s that thorough.

    Note: when reading the Comics Reporter guide to Comicon, don’t let reservation desk people stick you out at Hotel Circle, it’s just a pain and makes reading the guide arduous, especially if you have books and art to lug back and forth during the reading of it.

    That article brings out cellular memory of the con. I couldn’t even finish reading it before having to go take a nap.

    ‘ey, thanks for posting the link! It was great, and Tom’s actually added some of my advice about getting con sketches.

    And he linked to the page where I bash you, Zack!
    Aw shoot, I just ruined the roll of comments by Z-named people. Though I don’t know who else could have followed you two.

    I could sign this Zeppo if that would help.

    Just thinking about the Con makes me tired. thank goodness I’m not going this year.
