Lying In The Gutters - 19th March 2012

What stage are you at in the Apple Product Ownership cycle? After seeing ComiXology’s new HD comics for the New iPad, I’m think I’m further along.

Yeah, there we go. But what a wonderful WonderCon that seems to have been from all accounts. From the show floor to the panels to the bars, quality jollity seems to have been had from fans to professionals to vendors to bar staff. Naturally it will take a few days for the gossip to filter through… and I believe one announcement from Mark Waid will have considerable ripples across the industry for weeks to come.
