QUEER GEEK REPORT FROM NY COMIC-CON!
[News, Posted 10/13/12]
NEW YORK, NY – Konbon-wa from the Big Apple! Just got back from Day 3 of New York Comic-Con. This convention used to be an oasis of comics fun as compared to the craziness of San Diego Comic-Con, but no more. I don’t know if it’s as big, but it’s definitely has all the crowd-induced frustration that we pay a premium to experience.
But since I can’t control the crowd and can only control my response to it, I just slip into my special place where “Honey Boo Boo” lives and…

[News, Posted 7/16/12]

Sometimes I’m able to stand still long enough to Twitter and other times I'm sweating, desperately running from one side of the convention center to another. This time, so much was going on that I couldn't catch it all, so apologies if I don't have any pictures of your appearance/signing/panel/party.
It's a testament to the increasing visibility and interest in LGBTQI comics and…
SECOND QUEER NERD BLOG: SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2012!
[News, Posted 7/15/12]
My fourth day at Comic-Con and only my second blog. Apologies but I’ve been busy. For one, I got to meet John Barrowman!
If you ask “Who?”, well, your dilithium tiara is revoked! He’s Captain Jack Harkness of Torchwood who can also sing, dance, and charm the pants off anyone. He very kindly agreed to sign an action figure of Captain Jack, so that we could auction it to benefit Prism (thanks to Ted Abenheim and Scott Moore for making it happen).
Anyhoo, I went over to the…
