* I don't always trust attendance figures like this because most people don't really comprehend what 10,000 people looks like in a convention setting, but I'm thrilled Elkhart has a show. That little Goshen-Elkhart corridor is one of America's greatest. Shipshewana!
* Mocca Festival is barreling down on us. One thing they can do in the SOI iteration that wasn't available to them before is really show off their special guests like Mike Mignola with stuff at the Society building in the weeks leading up to the show. I bet you this is something that most big shows will have in place within three years.
