Is anybody in the area going? Is anybody in the area going to go after reading this? I've never been to this particular convention before, but I'm optimistic. Even if it doesn't meet our standards of rockitude, by golly, we're gonna make it rock.

So, DDers within the general vicinity of Charm City… I trust I'll see you there?

Some of us won't be in “Charm City” at that time.

Blah.

How come there are so many cons in the east coast? I'm jealous.

Poor, neglected Midwest.

Maryland…hmm…that's not TOO far away, but I'll probably be unable to make it.

How many conventions do you go to, Ian?

Sure! Most webcomicers may as well have the plague, though. :(

All I know about Baltimore is never go on a tuesday. And all I figure from the convention is that it will be 1) superheroes. 2) game-cards 3) people who missed Otakon and are looking for something to fill the void.

Reason why it seems so bland to me is because I have a friend who went last year, and she … oh, wait. I think Balticon's the place where she taught Neil Gaiman how to play some kind of game. Ho-well. Superhero things were never my bag. Something about DC and Marvel trying to get the term ‘Superhero’ copyrited kind of turned me off of the whole thing. At least I'm pretty sure it was DC and Marvel.

So… I can't possibly coerce you into coming with me, then, can I?

Did you make that as a flat statement or … wait … you're trying to make me convince myself, aren't you?

Even if you didn't mean that, it feels like someone's poking my brain with a you're-going-to-regret-not-going stick. Because … they may have JTHM things there.

let me go figure out ticketmaster for a second.

blah…
I need to get out more anyway.
Because despite my hatred for Marvel and DC, I really really love comics as a whole.
I'll see you there.

… and yes, I realize that I'm probably the most confusing person ever.
But I'm going just for the sake of cartoons and the fact that I might get to ride in a train for the first time ever. Because my comic involves a train soon and I really want to know first hand how they travel. Plus my social life could use a slight tweeking.

I don't live too far away, (Charles County, Southern Maryland, woo.), but I doubt I'll be going. I'mma haed off to the Rennaisance Festival for my birthday celebration instead. ;)

Ah, yes. So instead of having all sorts of awesomely cool comic-related adventures and possibly getting a avalanche of free swag dumped on you (what with it being your birthday and all), you would rather go somewhere where the main attractions are turkey legs the size of a baby's head.

Seriously, though, have fun.

Excuse me? I work where the turkey legs are the sizes of children's heads, and children the size of exercise balls cram them in their mouths … ie Rennfest. But for all the problems that place could possibly have,
1. I can make over 150 in a day.
2. I get discounts on tourist stuff.
3. I get discounts on the clothes that I put into school plays.
4. One of my shirts will forever have the words ‘Ian J.’ on the tag. It's not important to the fair, I'm just imagining somebody looking over my shoulder, reading my tag and asking if my name was really
Juel. That makes me laugh.
5. and …um yeah. That's about it.

But considering the lack of air conditioning, and steady ground for when it rains, the prices of food, the unending supplies of wasps, the really unhealthy looking people in inappropriate clothing and the fat children shoving turkey legs into their mouths … I'd actually rather be at Comic con. Hmm… doctor, I think I've made a breakthrough.
