I’m going to Supanova this weekend. Looks like a hoot. The very idea of the convention for games, comics and anime could be viewed suspiciously as little more than a revenue-raising exercise… OK, forget “could be.” It is. However, I don’t see a problem with people who have put their labour into something creative (software for a game, inks for a page) getting paid for it. Uncle Karl would agree. And he and I would be just as annoyed that the owners of those game companies were still skimming their exploitative profits from the top. Still, I’m mostly going for the Madman stall. Kudos to them for bringing Ghost In The Shell to Australia. Kudos to me for having seen that amazing story.
See you at Supanova, Madman.
