OMG, there's a comic book convention is Second Life!!!!!!
Okay, maybe it's not so much a convention of the traditional kind.
It's a comic convention of web comics. It's a new format that even the great Stan "The Man" Lee even got into and it's also a new format that the big paper companies such as DC and Marvel both fear and embrace. To one extent, the kinda knew it was coming but in a way feared it. Now we have the internet and soon 3-D environments such as Second Life and others. It's a new media and with that in mind new generations are finding comics on-line as well as in the paper kind.
I think this is a great way to open new doors to traditionalists like myself. I still prefer the paper kind to the online kind because it's more accessible to me.
