I volunteered for Denver Comic Con this year. Mostly because I missed the weekend passes (they sold out before I’d managed to order one), and I just really didn’t want to spend as much as daily passes would cost.
It’s been a bit of a while since I’ve attended a BIG convention, I think the last was Dragon*Con in 2013, and I was, unsurprisingly, not quite prepared to maneuver around the swarming masses.
It’s not even that crowds bother me so much, it’s that there were so many people that it was nigh impossible to get from Point A to B without taking a shoulder (or wing) to the face. Lucky for me, I’m pretty darn good at dodging things that come at my face.
The upside: I got to chat with a few of my new author friends and pick up a new book (Josh Vogt‘s Enter the Janitor). I got to meet an artist I backed on Kickstarter and pick up a new print (Cody Vrosh). Good times both.
But I’m not entirely sure that the ups outweighed the downs this time, particularly when I compare the experience to my time at Anomaly Con back in March. I may not attend next year.
Life’s been a little hectic of late, and I’ve found myself behind on filling everyone on recent events, so I’ll be back posting on relevant moments for the past couple of weeks (read: posts will be back-dated to a date appropriate to the circumstances of the commentary).
So, if you keep up with my posts, you may need to scroll back to catch everything.
Also, if anyone reading this is feeling overdue for an email, ramble, or related, I haven’t forgotten about you! I’ve got some topics noodling around and they’ll be heading out into the world soon…
And we had the druids […] and they built Stonehenge. One of the biggest henges in the world… No one’s built a henge like that ever since. No one knows what the fuck a henge is…

For those of you who have been following my blog (all like 2 of you), you may have noticed that it disappeared briefly and has now reappeared all empty and new-like…
This is the result of my recent switch to new web hosting… and my recent move making my primary computer still unavailable… so older posts will be re-posted at a later date… unless I’m too lazy to do it… in which case, this will be like a brand new blog… whooo.
