    Wow, a major comics show held on the East Coast in October, one that actively tries to appeal to the general public, and spent money on making it more than just a show in a hotel.

    You're Welcome.

    What about the Baltimore Con? It's been held in September/October for the last 10 years and is big enough to take over the Baltimore Convention Center for 2 days. Where's the love?

    Baltimore is moving to August next year, mainly to stay out of Reed's way. It's a good spot, a little busier than October used to be, but I think the fans will come back.

    I noticed that Long Beach posted their programming schedule today. It's in PDF form, but it's up now.

    There is no completion between Wizardís and Reedís comic cons after Wizardís piss poor offering this past weekend at Big Apple. Friday was a wasteland, with no events and only a meager handful of attendees. Saturday was a cluster f*ck, with the show both disorganized and swamped. No line control, people waiting out side in the rain for hours to get in to a show space that was only slightly less rainy then out side. Iím sure the vendors were less then thrilled with the leaky roof. The ill planed lay out and ill maintained faculties made the Javits center look like a palace by comparison.

    All Wizard dose by scheduling their con the same weekend is divide the audience, guests and resources for the shows and in the end it isnít Reed but fans that will suffer. I hope next year NYCC puts Big Apple out of is misery by crushing them completely.
