Saturday was the annual ELCAF pilgrimage, and the event seemed to have levelled up somewhat since last year. The comics were piled higher; the queues, and the beards, were longer.
I tried valiantly to overlook the overwhelming Chris Ware-ness of the event, as I was still ruing the fact that we’d forgotten to book tickets for his talk. I finished ‘Building Stories’ a couple of months ago and would have liked to have heard from the mastermind behind it (if only to try and get to the bottom of all the Brandon Bee stuff).
Nonetheless I somehow found the inner strength to spend lots of money on comics and sample the local IPA, and I left feeling a good 10% trendier than normal. The world is a more exciting place thanks to events like ELCAF.
