NY Comic Con!

New York Comic Con hit the Javits Center today- it will continue through Sunday. Marianne Petit was the moderator for a conversation with Scott McCloud and Douglas Rushkoff- hearing the comics theorist and the new media theorist wrangle over comics and the internet was fascinating. Calvin moderated a "buzz" panel with editors from Simon and Schuster, DC Comics and Abrams. Other highlights of the day included taking pictures of my friend Chris Stein and his daughter Maya with the Man of Steel.

Hi Jody -- you didn't happen to get a photo of Neil G accepting his "85 Weirdest Storytellers" award, did you? If so, we'd love to know: segal -at- weirdtales -dot- net.
