  1. So comics are at a point where you need a seperate convention that's specifically geared for kids. I simply have no idea how to feel about this, other than sad I don't live in NY so I can't go.

  2. Pro: I just make it for free admission!

    Con: If only I lived in New York.

    Another Con: Oh great, now I feel like a kid.

    Another Pro: Hey now, X-Men: First Class is a good book! And The Batman Strikes! can hit some smart notes as well!

  3. Oh, I wish I had known about this sooner. Would love to take my kids.

    Did anyone go last year? Curious as to what the programming is like, what age ranges it is best for, etc....obviously, my two year old isn't quite there yet (although he loves Tiny Titans, Super Friends and the new Spider-Man cartoon), but I think my five year old might have a would his mom.

    I was a voulenteer on the staff at the Con, it was a great experience for someone like me who's interested in the industry, but not in it yet. It was a great event for kids, except most of the publicity came a bit too late. I'm gonna try to help spread the news a little earlier next year, so im going around doing a little PR posting (unnoficial XD) Plus I'd like to thank anyone that tried to get the news out about it, a Huge Thank You.
