Topic: Comic Cons
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3702 - Yesterday, Vinnie and I attended the 3rd Annual 'Read Comics in Public Day' event that was held in the Claremont neighborhood of San Diego, California.
The middle photo above shows me reading a copy of 'The Comic Book History of Comics' by Fred Van Lente and Ryan Dunlavey, which I found to be fascinating!
The larger photo to the right shows those that had shown up early in the morning, outside of the Starbucks on Genessee and Balboa Avenue.
This local event was once again hosted by Chriss Cornish, who has been holding this since 2010 at the same location.
This event is just one of many events that was inspired by the main 'Read Comics In Public' group started by Brian Heater and Sarah Morean back in 2010. I urge you to take a look at their link, and see what is happening tomorrow, August 28th in your area, so you too can celebrate the 'Read Comics in Public' Day!
Chriss Cornish elected to hold the San Diego event on this past Sunday. The event page for the San Diego event is at: Read Comics In Public Day - San Diego.
Chriss' main Facebook page has just been started at: San Diego Reads Comics In Public, which I urge you to 'Like'!
Photos that Vinnie and I took of the couple of hours we attended the San Diego event can be seen at my Facebook Fan Page in the special photo album titled: 2012 Read Comics In Public Day.
(Vinnie and I would have stayed longer at this event, but I had a meeting of the San Diego Comic Fest to attend that ran during the later hours of this event. I'll be posting on that later, either here, at my Facebook fan page, and / or the Facebook fan page for the San Diego Comic Fest.)
My thanks once again to Chriss Cornish, who held this 2012 event. I urge you to 'Like' her Facebook fan page, and to check out whatever is being held in your area on Tuesday, August 28th!
