    Not that I recall.

    How'd it compare to the big con Adge?
    Ah, you know, it's pretty similar, just a LOT smaller.

    Did you check any panels?
    Just a couple. We went to both of the ones Terry Moore was on, a spotlight on him and one of just him and Jeff Smith talking about the birth of indie comics. We went to a couple screenings of animated films, which I'll mention next time I update the Last Movie Watched. Other than that, we mostly stuck to the floor. I got a whole bunch of **** signed, which was nice, and barely had to wait in any lines. I think I waited about 20 minutes for Steranko, and that only took that long because he was talking to people and being cool. Got Mark Silvestri to sign some stuff within minutes of walking up to his table, had Terry Moore sign everything, Jeff Smith, Joshua Dysart, John Layman, etc. Everybody was cool.

    The one thing I noticed is that people are rarely doing free sketches anymore. Most artists had signs on their table saying they charged for them, a couple just said "no, sorry". I got one free headsketch and I think the guy (Peter Nguyen) only did it because Boobytrap bought one of his prints. I heard Stan Sakai (Usage Yojimbo) say he was only doing headsketches because he would see the full body ones he'd do for free on eBay for ridiculous money.

    Any cool swag???
    There was **** all free stuff. Like, literally, nothing. Other than the occasional post card. It was weak.

    As far as **** bought, I mostly spent all my money on 50% trades. There was one vendor who made figures out of scrap metal that were really cool, but by the time I went back to him on Sunday, most of the cool **** was gone. Should've gotten in on that stuff earlier. There was a really nice Predator statue he made and it was only $45... ****!

    Let's see... what else?

    Deadpool was the most popular cosplay character by far. Him and maybe Marceline from Adventure Time.

    People waited in line for 6 hours or more to see Jim Lee. I hope he was sketching for them.

    Pretty sure you would have remembered this...



    Or maybe you just have terminal amnesia from the frying pan to the head that BT would have given you for staring.

    Pretty sure it would have taken more than a frying pan to erase that from memory...
