Thanks for enduring Comic-Non International. The original plan was to string it out over all 5 days of the real Comic-Con, but I figured that just the once maybe I could avoid beating a joke into the ground. Besides, I figured that petering out after 2 or 3 days was more in keeping of the True Spirit of the Least Impressive Pop Culture Gathering of the Year, being as far removed from Comic-Con's epic five day endurance challenge as possible.
Amazingly, the Facebook event listing I made attracted the fake non-attendance of over 20 people, some of whom I don't even know, which is a hell of a lot more attention than I usually get from my particular brand of malarkey. A couple people even took costume pictures, which took way more effort than I ever intended to put into it myself, so good on them.
Anyway, some links of note on this rainy and humid Sunday morn:
They gave out the Eisner Awards over at the real Comic-Con. Here are the winners. Yay for Herbie Archives!
And as everyone who cares has already heard, Marvel is getting the rights to Marvelman. But very little word yet about whether or not this is going to mean they can reprint the Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman stuff, which, let's be honest, is the only stuff anyone cares about.
Hey, wanna feel old? Here are 100 things your kids may never know about.
It gets worse. Here's what happened when the BBC convinced a 13 year old to trade in his iPod for a Walkman for a week.
Doctor Who canon? Not so much, this guy says (As apparently does Russell T. Davies. And Steven Moffat. And Paul Cornell. And the BBC itself.). I tend to agree.
