NYCC Report: Lillian and Martha at the Archie Panel

The Comic Mix gals ask the tough questions:

"Since Archie has been around more than 60 years, we asked, "Shouldn't they be old geezers asking for pills instead of going to college?” Mr. Silberkleit asked if anyone wanted to read those stories, and only a few people said, “Yes.”

We also asked, “Why do Betty and Veronica like Archie so much? He’s the nerdiest guy in the school. He drives a crappy car. He doesn’t have any money. He doesn’t look great and he has freckles and crosses on his head.” Dan Parent said all of this gave hope to him when he was a kid."

New York Comic-Con 2008...A few comments

(From Liz:)
It seemed like everyone was having fun at this year's New York Comic Con, and things ran smoothly. Our booth in the small press area was like a mini-sitcom with cameo appearances by so many great people in comics, stopping to say hello: Joe Kubert, Bill Plympton, Mo Willems, Ray Alma, Paul Levitz, Mike Richardson, Danny Fingeroth, Arie Kaplan, Martha Thomases, Arthur Tebbel, Anne Bernstein, Harvey Richards, Jim Salicrup, Paulette Powell, Scott & Ivy McCloud (celebrating their 20th Anniversary!)...and that is just during the limited time that I was there, helping set-up and break down the booth.

Nine year old Lillian was there much of Saturday and Sunday, helping her father Kyle Baker sell THE BAKERS: BABIES & KITTENS and drawing sketches. She heard "Look at how big you got!" and "You're so pretty!" quite a lot.

Speaking of pretty, Lillian reported Saturday night: "Mom, there were some women dressed inappropriately." The gal in the neighboring booth made Felony from SPECIAL FORCES look modest. She used our power strip to charge up her Iphone. I'm sure that wasn't the only thing she charged up over the weekend.
