The Most Interesting Thing I’ve Read All Day


Erik Larsen and Kurt Busiek are talking via Twitter about Larsen's desire to do an off-site event Comic-Con International weekend, so as to serve area comics fans that were unable to purchase tickets to this year's show.

I think that's a fascinating idea, and I've long wondered why someone savvy and local didn't do a small comics show in proximity to the bigger show, accepting CCI passes and targeting in some modest way the left-out locals, people who want to go somewhere other than the convention center for a few hours as well as the "I don't plan my July weekends six months in advance" crowd. I went to a gun show and a fancy beer show in public spaces across the street from each other; why wouldn't I go to two comics shows in the same weekend?
