Suddenly Cosplay! Well they weren’t kidding about the crowds and the local kids dressed as their favorite manga characters. We don´t have time for a detailed report today — we’ve just returned from a hike around Montjuic and need to find some cafe con leche. We’re happy to report there have been no further¨”setbacks,” thus far.
We attended the awards ceremony last night, and took several pictures which we’ll eventually post. Our compatriots suggested that the Eisners would be much livelier if they featured an open bar, tapas tables, and well animated montages of the nominees set to The Clash and Oasis. Unfortunately, the livliness afforded by the open bar also added some excess chatter during the winners speeches, so it´s a big trade off. Prado won some kind of big award, as did the great Víctor de la Fuente. Max’s Bardin, Super Realist won a bunch of awards but we don’t know what for.
