…but I have no desire whatsoever to see Comic-Con move there.

You are SO unfairly biased against Los Angeles.
Even now, I am planning a tour for you. You’ll see!
I do believe that someday you will take my contempt for this town and magically convert it into LOVE.
But the area around the convention center? Blech.
Hmmm… Actually if that happened I may finally get to go because it would double as an excuse to fly down to see my Grandparents… But I can totally sympathize if this is a matter of not wanting to see your yearly tradition of going down to, what is frankly, a much better city then Los Angeles, die…
Well…I do like other places…but san diego is where the heart of comics are to me (well its more of new york for me)
For some reason, I have been blocked from posting comments with my website link, even though it’s just a link to my comic and it’s completely benign.
Sorry, not sure why that would be.
Pretty sure others have been posting links.
I’ve only been to ComiCon once; in either ’88 or ’89 and you were the only person I knew in the whole place at the time. It seemed to be totally about comics then and you could meet just about anyone in the industry you wanted to there. Matt Wagner was a walk-up, as was Steve Rude and Paul Chadwick. Heck, turns out I walked up and talked to Gaiman and McKean and got to thumb through the unpublished art to the “Black Orchid” mini-series before even knowing who either of them were! Does this kind of thing still happen at ComicCon? Could they just shuffle off the ‘media’ portion of the con and leave the comic part in San Diego?
