NYCC Restores Professional Passes For Ruben Bolling And Adam Koford After Initially Declining Them

This one was pretty straight-forward. Last week the cartoonists Ruben Bolling and Adam Koford noted through their active social media presences they were denied professional registration accreditation to this year's big show in New York. This set off a flurry of "they're not about comics" conversations concering NYCC, and more importantly sent friends of both men to complain to NYCC directly and see if the oversight could be resolved. Earlier today, NYCC's Lance Fensterman confirms they both have been. I'm going to assume word may have gone out earlier on-line via both individuals that this worked itself out.

"The longer answer is that the process is human (on both sides) so at times, we make oversights or errors and at times the applicant does (by not filling out the form completely for example)," Fensterman told CR. "It's not automated, nor do we want it to be, but that means at moments we miss something..."

I'm happy those fine pros will get the badges they deserve and understand that executing these things with 100 percent accuracy can be a daunting task. I hope all such denials that are justifiably reversible receive the same attention.
