Looking at this slideshow from a PHILADELPHIA TV station looking at the New York Comic-con you begin to see just why everyone wants to cover it: so pervy photogs can take pictures of half naked girls and cute anime chicks.
Meanwhile, Vertical’s Anne Ishii delivers the final word in a MUST READ NY Comic-Con 2007 Report:
My problem ain’t the fans though. Seriously. I am as inclined to argue with a DM over my wizard powers as I am to sit in a conference room discussing market share. My problem, was the idiots. Like the dude who tried to “steal” Vertical’s giveaway tote bags. I had to pretend I couldn’t see him, though being three feet away from me, wearing a bright green lantern shirt and tip-toeing like a pansy are details hard to miss. I mean c’mon. If you want a tote bag, the least you can do is make eye contact with me. You don’t gots ta jank that, dawg.
Also, the convention floor is NOT the place to hit on an exhibitor. And even if you felt like you had to, the way to do it is NOT by taking my business card without asking, giving me yours without my wanting it, and saying “I want you to call me,” make sexual eye contact, and then walking away backwards while maintaining that eye contact. Friend- unless you played Batman in any of his last three big screen incarnations, I will never call you.
