Page 9 of ROAD TO HELL, my ECCC con report.
LIKE THIS WAS KIND OF JUST IT: It wasn’t necessarily a convention that was TOO mainstream. There were a lot of indie publishers and creators represented, and there weren’t any monster-size media conglomerate booths like at SDCC or NYCC. (Except for Image Comics with their gigantic empty mondo-cube booth. Points off for tastelessness,guys.) It was just that there wasn’t really much of a crowd for indie comics.
Maybe it was because so many people are into the hero stuff now due to movies and games, or maybe because tight economic times force congoers to save their money for stuff they know they’ll like before buying it. However you parse it, it was an oddly tough crowd for such a diverse event.

Changing a belt on a car should cost like twenty bucks, tops.

APPARENTLY we could have just run the car without the belt, but it would have been powered solely by the battery and would’ve conked out after about ten minutes of driving. So basically the most important and essential part of the car, the one that keeps the engine running, decided to not just break, but totally vanish. 
AND WE’RE STILL ONLY HALFWAY THROUGH THURSDAY
