There were a couple of local comics show this weekend. Joe Gordon at the Forbidden Planet blog went to Hi-Ex, which was seemingly held in Narnia during the White Queen’s reign…no no, it was actually held in Inverness, Scotland, where every photo comes out like a postcard! For real, the pictures at this blog make this locale look like a magical winter wonderland. And of course since it was in Scotland, everyone ate haggis and tossed cabers and said “Och, Laddie!” while taking about the Loch Ness monster all the time, right? Here’s John Higgins in between mouthfuls of haggis and black pudding.
Meanwhile Grendel33, aka “Ty” went to the 2nd Annual Toronto ComicCon and gives a very thorough report. Here’s Francis Manapul and Agnes Grabowska. How does Francis Manapul always get his hair to do that manga thing? He’s good!
