Rich Johnston has helpfully rounded up Twitter news of the weekend’s three conventions — BICS in Birmingham, UK; Mid-Ohio Con in…Mid-Ohio, aka Columbus, OH; and Long Beach Comic-Con in Cali–in a post he calledA Tale of Three Twitties(can we say we’re JEALOUS!!!!!) but it was this one which caught our eye:
Paul Cornell: Stayed out talking comics: great. But missed Andy Diggle in other pub. Next year: official pub sort out please
PUB CONFUSION AT CON! You’ve got to sort this out, mate!
Meanwhile, we followed Mid-Ohio Con via Maggie Thompson who covers it all:
Purchases: MicroChamber Paper from Bags Unlimited, Love & Capes hoodie. Ready for anything!
Discussed with Marv Wolfman the advantages of donating comics to university collections.
Meanwhile at Long Beach, reports are very good. We’re hearing the show isn’t that large but the vibe is chipper, and David Gallaher, at least, sold out of HIGH MOON. Kelson Vibber has a nice photo set up, with crowd shots but also…a heron! See, being on the water makes people happy! Long Beach is definitely a great spot for a show, and next year we’re going to try to make it out.
