A collection of some of what’s being written from and about Comic-Con:
• Gray Horses creator Hope Larson, who’s not in San Diego, reacts to winning the Special Recognition Award at last night’s Eisner ceremonies: “Holy crap! I won! Do you know that moment in every high school story when the heroine first sees the list on the wall, and learns she’s won the lead in the musical, and she’s sure this isn’t happening, someone’s made a mistake? That moment is real.”
• Artist Cliff Chiang checks in, and discovers some of his artwork adorning the DC Comics booth.
• Bully the blogging bovine has the exhibitor’s view from the floor on Day 2: “It’s an incredibly busy day: Friday day tickets are sold out so we’re at full capacity here, but unlike BookExpo America at the Javits Center in New York this past June, the AC is cranked up to ‘Hoth’ and it’s pleasant to work and move about. ‘Here they come!’ shouts someone down the aisle, and while my natural impulse is to cry back ‘Walkin’ down the street, get the funniest looks from everyone they meet!’ it’s actually the cry to arms for dealers and exhibitors to batten down the hatches: the con attendees are on the floor.”
• At Active Anime, the gang from Del Rey Manga is blogging from the convention floor.
