Hi, everyone! Yes, this post is two days late, for reasons I will explain here and probably elsewhere. I went to a so-called "Comics Convention" on Saturday. And I put the quotes there to indicated "so called" because, as far as I could see, there were only four tables where people were selling original comic books that they had created. The other sixty tables were devoted to, in varying degrees, used toys, figurines, pillowcases, fake weaponry for cosplay, and unauthorized art prints of licensed characters from Star Wars, Marvel and DC superhero movies, and suchlike.
There was a lot to take in. It was called "Comic Con" but it was more like "movie-tie-in con". I'm guessing that the average member of the public who shells out $20 for this type of thing is not interested in comics but instead is more interested in superhero movies, and regards the humble comic (at best) as beneath his notice or (at worst) an art form fit for children and mental defectives.
I'm guessing. Maybe I'm wrong. For all I know maybe if I had a ripoff "fan art" pictures of storm troopers or whatever I could have sold them.
Anyway. Late. I posted late. Next Friday I'll be here, as usual.
I'll say this week about this week's page, again.
Don't worry! William Blake was just making an interesting point about book criticism! Yes, if you were going from just the image, it looks like apes cannibalizing small primates, but it's only book criticism, I assure you! No primates were harmed in the making of this comic or this poem.
Okay, thanks for visiting, fellows! See you this Friday!
