As most of you know by now, Wizard World turned down my press pass for 2013. This enraged me quite a bit, and as a result, I said that I wouldn't be covering that stupid fucking convention this year. However, I realize that this might hinder the people in Artists Alley, and they don't deserve to be shit on like that. So here's my compromise: there will be no coverage, and there will be no formal reviews. However, if I picked up a book in Artists Alley that I really enjoyed, I'll plug it here. Cool?
I'm going to try one last time for a press pass for C2E2 next year. If they don't give it to me, then I'm going to retire my coverage of comic book conventions. It sucks, but cons cost waaaay too much money to cover them on my own dime. As it turns out, I've discovered horror cons are a lot of fun. Flashback doesn't offer press passes, so I won't be covering them, but Days of the Dead is coming up in Schaumburg in November. They DO offer press passes, so I'm thinking if I can score one, I'll start covering that con instead. (That is, I will if I don't wind up stepping on Forced Viewing's toes.)
EDIT: I should mention that I'm making an exception for MISERABLE AMERICANS. Since practically nothing came out last week, I didn't get anything I could review for Wednesday. I decided to go with MISERABLE AMERICANS because I'd never heard of the guy who does it before.
