Keeping it Estoreal

I understand that the New York Comic-Con was a total mess (on the train ride home, I read the paper where it quotes one of the organizers as saying he was hoping to get 15,000 people on Saturday. 15,000 people!!! You can get 15,000 people to show up for, like, a Eddie Munster Fan Convention in New York City!) today, so that is why I will forgive you folks for not coming by the Comics Should Be Good meet-up. However, I will also provide a shout-out to RAB, who DID attend.

Check out his blog here. It is neat. It is called Estoreal. In the spirit of Grant Morrison, he uses "Made-up words that seem like they ought to mean something." I think we can all get behind that!

I would have loved to attend the meet-up afterwards, but (a) my wife and I had to drive back to Massachusetts and (b) we ended up leaving way earlier then we thought we would because the convention was so packed and uncomfortable.

I'm posting a con report on my blog right now, check out my GeniusboyFiremelon blog at geniusboyfiremelon.blogspot.com when you get a chance.

I drove up form Baltimore with my wife for the weekend for her Birthday. I went there with my wife and her sister on Saturday afternoon. We didn't buy tickets beforehand, and couldn't get in on Saturday. We ended up going over to Midtown Comics and there was actually a line in front of the store to get in! It was my wife's Birthday, so I didn't expect to go to the show. Imagine my surpise when she and her sister suggested it! They were so excited to go and it was a real bummer when we were turned away. I'm glad I didn't waste the money to pre-register.

Brian, sincere thanks for the shout-out. I got home from the convention only to find my net access down, so I'm only finding out about it now...and I haven't had a chance to make any posts about the con yet. So much for capitalizing on my fifteen minutes!

Anyway...next year at Eddie Munster Con, right?
