My pal Jake said to me, “I think there are two equally creepy options – 1. Ross intentionally, on his own accord, drew a big bulge in the guy’s pants or 2. The model Ross had for Citizen Steel had a big bulge, and Ross decided to paint it in.”
Based on our knowledge of Ross’s working method, he probably just left it in.
We’re back home, a little the worse for the wear but we still had some kick ass adventures. We’ll have some pictures and reports from the convention later today (maybe) a few catch-up items and resume FULL blogging duties tomorrow.
Before we go any further a BIG BIG shout out to Carles Santamaria, General Manager of Ficomic, and David Macho for the help, hospitality and friendship. The Salo de Comic is a huge show, now the second largest in Europe, and from what we saw, everyone seemed to be having a great time, from the guests to the fans. We made some new friends, same some amazing sights, got some great comics, and accomplished everything we hoped to.
One more thing before we get started:
The Very High Authority Group [A-List Bloggers]
(500 or more blogs linking in the last 6 months)
In the final group we see what might be considered the blogging elite. This group, which represents more than 4,000 blogs, exhibits a radical shift in post frequency as well as blog age. Bloggers of this type have been at it longer – a year and a half on average – and post nearly twice a day, an increase in posting volume of over 100% from the previous group. Many of the blogs in this category, in fact, are about as old as Technorati and we’ve grown up together. Some of these are full-fledge professional enterprises that post many, many times per day and behave increasingly like our friends in the mainstream media. As has been widely reported, the impact of these bloggers on our cultures and democracies is increasingly dramatic.
