COMIC-CON 2013 UPBEAT UPDATE

All original written content and photos are ©2013 Mike Pascale. Visual content ©2013 their respective owner(s). In the middle of Comic-Con craziness yet again. Time is short, lines are long. Because I have little of the former and have to deal with the latter, I have just enough minutes to send some bullet points your way. Again there is a wealth of free panels and seminars for just about every discipline related to the creative…

Comic-Con Commission Common Sense

Hey, it’s that time of year again! The fanboys’/art collectors’ Super Bowl, Oscars, Grammys and World Cup all rolled into one heaping, overpriced, overcrowded, smelly mess. I’m talking, of course, about Comic-Con International in San Diego, taking place from July 24 through the 27th. (Though it will seem like a month long by the time it’s done.)
