 PopMatters Comics Feature | Too Big for the Room: The First Annual New York Comic Con
Comic book conventions aren't, as some people in the mainstream media would have you believe, a "nerd prom" or a "gathering of the geeks".
Popular comic creators such as Brian Michael Bendis, Brad Meltzer, and Jim Lee were tapped to attend, as well as guests from other media such as Milla Jovovich, Kevin Smith and WWE wrestler, Kane.
This included many comic vendors, who became virtual prisoners of the convention, not able to leave to have a smoke or get something to eat (that is, if they didn't want to stand in the long line for the food vendors in the convention room itself).

This week the war of the big bank comic convention juggernauts has erupted with the pop-culture conventions battling it out to bring in as many A-List comic creators as possible and to stake their claim to late summer comic conventioneering domination.

It's a comic I mention purely because it has one of my favorite stupid pun background jokes ever: One of the main characters is reading a comic at one point, and the comic has this cliched action hero with square jaw, and behind him, this giant angry bear with mouth open in anger.

Then there are comics that count 12-pages one way, and 16-pages the other — closer investigation reveals what appears to be sliced-out pages in the “short” side of the book, but page-numbers and story-lines confirm that the book is complete.
