Belatedly, a few things about the Emerald City Comicon:
1. The crowd was awesome. Everyone I talked to was smart and nice.
2. Cons are way better with a posse. It was especially fun to take the train back as a group of eight.
3. Cons are also way better when I have something new. Good thing I haveÂ aÂ couple moreÂ minicomics in the works.Â
4. This display from a shop near our hotel is cute and everything, but it reminded me a little too much of that part in the beginning of Spirited Away where the parents’ consumption causes them to transform:
In other news:Â
I was pleased to be able to help welcome BitchÂ to Portland! They have an excellent space (right above Bernie’s, locals) and it was chock full of supporters, plusÂ a super bulldog.
In domestic news:

Throwing out crap: rewarding.
Resisting the urge to buy new crap to fill the space left by just-discarded crap: even more rewarding.
