By Tom Spurgeon
* here's a walk through Tokyo Comic Con that someone at Bleeding Cool flagged, basically a preview screen and a bunch of toy displays, which isn't too far from the bulk of what you see at any pop-culture oriented show anywhere in the world.
* speaking of the longtime news and rumor site, Rich Johnston dissects the charter membership offers CCI made on Giving Tuesday.
* Kerry Dixon looks at this year's economic impact numbers and where CCI lands in comparison to other San Diego shows. The shift in emphasis to more realistic numbers here was a big change in how CCI has been viewed moving forward.
