Something painfully obvious I know but this article in the LA Times (hat tip to Alan of the Daily Cartoonist) laments the takeover each year of Comic-Con by Hollywood elite hoping to get a strong internet buzz for their latest endeavors.
For those who go, do you feel the loss of the way it used to be or is it better for smaller exhibitors because what you lose in focus you make up because if the sheer number of people.
I have never been to a comic convention and even with the proliferation of webcartoonists that exhibit at them these days, I will probably not ever be one of them. Face it, political cartoon compilations are not what fanboys are clamoring for. Maybe if there’s ever a newsie-con, I’ll be setting up shop between Rachel Maddow and Glenn Beck who are there trying to hock their own books.
