Anime Con

OOPS!!! Forgot to mention, Tom Hall and I will be at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC this weekend at the Anime Convention to promote our new book, Mecha Manga Bible Stories. Will have copies of Megazeen on hand as well as full-color ashcans and posters of the new book. BE THERE!!!!

advice: Don't insult potential buyers by pronouncing it "main-ga". It's "mahn-guh". just a friendly precaution.

I will say this... having never been to an anime con, I was bracing myself for a freakshow. What I found was a geniunely nice, fun-loving, smiling group of fans. This is in direct opposition to the 95% male, cynical mouth-breathers at comic cons. I'm still not what I could call a fan of manga, no matter how it's pronounced. But I am certainly a fan of its fans.

I think that might be the korean version, Jer.


well, anything particularly amazing happen?

Amazing? Not really. I mean, I didn't go to any of the events or anything, since I was mainly working the table. I was imrpessed with the costuming- some of it weird, some beautiful, some amazing looking in the sheer detail of it. Very little of it was trashy. The artist next to us gave me a color print of Harley Quinn that was really cool. I'm a sucker for Harley. Tom got his picture taken next to a giant plaintain- he should have it on his blog soon. Apparantly these guys have battles n stuff, like Giant Roll of Toilet Paper vs Giant Can of Chicken Soup.
