Comic Picks By The Glick

Normal service will resume tomorrow…

In case anyone was wondering, I left for Fanime Con on Friday and returned late today.  Hands-down my favorite con to visit, it was still slightly disappointing compared to previous cons.  That's what happens when three of the regular Guests of Honor I enjoy seeing (Carl Horn, Reuben Landon and Ryan Gavigan) don't show up, physical copies of the schedule were limited to the info desks, and the subtitles were either not present or had the timing wrong in two of the live-action films I saw.  However, Ric Meyers was back with his Kung-Fu Superhero Extravaganza (and assorted panels), the "Create That Hentai" panel was still hilarious, my AMV experience was better than in years past, the Masquerade featured an awesome "Portal" skit (amongst others), and Tsui Hark's "Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame" was very cool.

Overall, it still added up to an experience that felt like I arrived on Friday, blinked, and then found myself getting ready to leave today.  Time goes that fast when you're having fun at Fanime.  I also picked up some manga and read through a few other comics that arrived last week.  Expect to see reviews of those over the next few days.
