Sans-Comic-con

Christopher Butcher, retailer and organiser of the Toronto Comic Arts Festival writes about the lack of comics at San Diego Comic-con;

Let’s get this out of the way: I love comics. I think comics are awesome. And I think comics as an industry and a medium needs big events like NYCC and SDCC and hundreds of other regional comics shows: they act as ambassadors for the medium. And so the question for the organizers of these events should be “does any of what we’re doing serve comics as a medium? or an industry? or is it just about the value of the access to mouthy nerds with blogs?”
