"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
I’m really getting addicted to Roger Langridge’s journal-style writeups of the cons he goes to. His latest one is of Kids Read Comics, which took place in Ann Arbor, Michigan, last weekend, but to get the full effect, you should also read his account of the trip from North Carolina to Ann Arbor via Greyhound bus, which is sort of a worst-case scenario.
Those who couldn’t be there can experience the con vicariously through podcasts; the KRC folks recorded their panel on Comics Programming in Libraries, and TGT Webcomics podcaster Kurt Sasso has video interviews up with a number of guests, including Sara Turner (The Ghosts of Pineville) and Krishna Sadasivam (PC Weenies). Sadavisam checks in as well with his own con report, and Ryan Estrada wraps it up with a truly awesome story about a kid cartoonist. There’s more at the official Kids Read Comics website and Twitter feed.
