The media run-up to the inaugural New York Comic-Con has been… well… irritating. Corporate cousin Publishers Weekly has been understandably enthusiastic, and paid con consultant and PW employee Heidi MacDonald has been blogging the hell out of it, but it would all be a bit easier to swallow with a bit of objectivity, even skepticism.
Oh, Christopher Butcher, it’s like you read my mind. Comics.212.net is indisputably the place to follow the con, and Chris’s dispatches have been wonderfully informative, smart, and just catty enough. It’s like the platonic ideal of con blogging. (He even switched from white text on a black background to black text on a white background, and my tired old eyes thank him.)
