I'm filing my Comic-Con stuff and I thought you might like to see some of it.  Above is the front and back of the name card that was on the table in front of me at the Jack Kirby Tribute panel.

At other panels, participants were amused by the cautionary note about audience members under the age of 18.  I'm not sure I saw any of them at any of the panels I was on.  I still thought the note was a good one. 


  1. I think the reminder that there might be minors in the audience is a great idea. I was at a couple of panels where folks were asked specifically if there were kids in attendance, but even then I don't recall anything being said that would shock many kids over the age of 13 who were attending a public school.

    I'll never forget a presentation that Harlan Ellison did back in the '80s (I believe it was in NYC), where he threw out a few curse words and one story where he used the "N" word. It was my first time seeing Harlan in person and he wowed the audience. I was reminded of some routines I had heard Lenny Bruce do on some of his albums.

  2. Wouldn't it be awesome to do a panel on Kirby, or Ditko, or Gene the Dean Colan, and have it chock-full of enthusiastic fans under the age of 18?
