Another Denver Comic Con has come and gone, this time, over the Memorial Day weekend. In only its fourth year, DCC had 101,500 attendees, up from 86,500 last year. To help make this possible, they rented some 500,000 square feet of the Convention Center — an increase of 20,000 square feet over last year, and just shy of the entire building. Even with an increase of size and numbers, the flow of traffic was handled well and congestion was kept to a minimum in comparison to other comparable conventions I’ve been to. The staff is still some of the friendliest I’ve dealt with and never seemed to get frustrated dealing with all the attendees.
Horror – the genre has been around since the movie industry started, because who doesn’t love a good scare, right? Guess what. There are also horror comics, and they have been around a long time, too. The problem with horror comics is the exact same problem that horror movies have. There are so many of them made all the time, and there is no way to tell whether or not they are going to be awesome or terrible. That is where I come in.
