WisCon happened, and it was great
. The big new thing for me this year was that I hosted an official party on behalf of my comic book club. We had two large tables covered in comics that guests could read, two tables covered in comics-themed coloring book pages, and one table full of door prizes. Everything went smoothly. Rachel and Jen co-hosted with me, and several members of the club helped out. We'll probably do it again next year, and honestly there's little I'd change, it went so well!
Also, Kelly Sue DeConnick was there!
Also I commissioned another great Carol/Wanda piece from Alex Heberling
of the webcomic The Hues
If you're wondering if I'm ever going to post the Carol/Wanda piece I commissioned at C2E2, well, I haven't received it physically yet, but there's an image of it here on Instagram
Jen and I are tentatively planning a trip to the University of Iowa on Friday to peruse their fandom-related special collection
archive. I've sent a request for access, and we've looked at hotels. It's only a three hour drive, but we'll probably drive down after work on Thursday and spend the night so we can squeeze as much out of Friday as possible.
At the moment I'm most interested in the early zines, correspondences, and scripts of Starsky & Hutch. Anyone following me on Tumblr might have noticed that I've fallen back into S&H fandom, and this time I've pulled Jen down with me. I showed her episodes with high levels of cradling and questionable banter, and that did the trick.
I might post more about S&H, because last time I fell in I only watched about half the episodes, and this time I'm watching a lot more of the later ones, including "Death in a Different Place" and "Manchild on the Streets" which are giving me meta thoughts.
