I'm back from Wizard World Nashville! Ok -- not really "back" per se since I live in the Music City, but the convention is over and it's "back" to things as usual. A big thank you to those that came out to the convention and listened to me speak with Danny Fingeroth! The panel went really well and was great fun. I think this was the first time I spoke at length in one panel about both my grandfather's contributions to the industry, as well as my own endeavors -- but hopefully not my last!

  A couple of the images I used in my presentation. I had a fun time connecting the dots between my passion for romance comics and my family history!

Overall, the convention was a good time. As one of the newer Wizard shows, it still has some growing to do, but it did seem larger than last year. It was also noticeably laid out better, with Artist Alley more centrally located. The lack of actual comic book dealers was disappointing, but I was prepared for it based on last year's rather poor selection. I do hope that the show continues to grow, especially in the actual arena of comic books!

Did any of you attend? Will you be going to any other upcoming conventions anywhere? Feel free to share!
