Festivals Extra: Genghis Con This Saturday


This is a one-day I track for a few reasons. The first is proximity; I'll be tabling. The second is that it runs on Sunday, 2-7, on the tail end of a big holiday weekend. The US used to do a lot of events on holidays because it was the rare guaranteed downtime for middle and lower class workers. We don't do it as much anymore. The third thing is I'm interested in Cleveland as a comics town, and what the audience will be like. It always feels to me like the first generation of direct market retail had a bigger presence in the midwest than the second generation does.

Here's the Facebook event page. I'll be the guy looking for excuses to sit down.
