I think you've got it wrong, Mark. Shatner caused that apocalypse with his mighty wrath and stilted line delivery.

Since Comic Boy Guy is your recurring muse for this fabulous feature, it seems appropriate that the Shat cover inspired me to respond like a terrified Lisa Simpson: "AHHHHHHHHHH!!"

Look forward to hearing about the Twin Cities con! Any interesting speakers or guests, or is it mostly a hunting-for-back-issues kind of thing?

He's seems a bit too jovial for the scene in question. Maybe he did cause it.

I think my local shop keeps running out of CSN, as I get it rather sporadically.

Well, there are well over 200 "comic book creators" listed, but only a scant fraction of them are what I would consider "A-list". The vast majority of them seem to be self-publishing indies (which are completely off my radar).

The Fallcon has never had great programming, though with an expanded venue this year, there's definitely a chance for big improvements in this area.

So, yeah, until they airlift John Romita Sr. in and get some really interesting programming/presentations, I'm afraid Fallcon will essentially be "back issue hunting" for me. I'll try to take some photos, though, and post them on my report.
