Con Report: SPX 2008

Much as with Heroes Con earlier this summer, I’ve once again proved to be too lazy and disorganized to do a nightly roundup post during the show… but, frankly, there were plenty of press folks floating around the place who will most certainly do a better job covering the show than I could–especially since I …

Thoughts on Heroes Con ’08

In previous years, I’ve done a day-by-day roundup of Heroes Con, usually typed semi-deliriously from my hotel room in the wee hours of the morning.  This year, though, with so much comics press at the show (Heidi MacDonald from PW’s The Beat, Johanna Draper Carlson from Comics Worth Reading, Matt Brady from Newsarama, Craig Fischer …
