350 thought on “Comic-Con Strikes Again! (Kindle Single)

  1. Before reading Douglas Wolk s Comic Con Strikes Again I d always assumed that the annual confab in San Diego was a bit like the cantina scene in Star Wars News coverage of the event tended to focus on its colorful aspects costumed participants channeling their favorite comic book, sci fi and or super hero movie characters Likewise, the coverage in publications like Entertainment Weekly focused on the celebrity aspect, panel discussions on television shows and movies, and the buzz about coming at [...]


  2. When I was a teenager and young adult, I dwelled on the fringes of weird I looked perfectly normal on the outside, but the older I got, the I learned to greatly enjoy sci fi, fantasy, and various role playing games such as Dungeons Dragons although the appeal of anime did and still does escape me One of the things my group of friends and I always thought would be cool was to go to Comic Con This Kindle Single picked up for a mere.99 is a far too brief look into the juggernaut that is Comic Con T [...]


  3. The Kindle Single, Comic Con Strikes Again drops readers right in the midst of the biggest comic book and multi media convention in the world, letting us enjoy through the author s eyes all the rabid fandom, costumed craziness, relentless and sophisticated than I thought efforts on the part of producers and publishers to create or expand interest in their intellectual properties, and most of all the heady mixture of intensity, fun, and weariness that comprises the San Diego Comic Con experience [...]


  4. Douglas Wolk was pretty much spot on in his analysis of Comic Con culture here, and that was pretty impressive This is than just a fan account of the infamous geek event it s a serious dissection of many of the pillars of the convention, the fans who go there and a lot of the rationale behind the entire event.In addition to this rather intellectual discussion of geek culture, he also does a great job of recreating many aspects of the event itself His use of language is vivid and quite imaginativ [...]


  5. Written by a participant journalist, this multi chapter article answers the question many of us outsiders ask about Comic Con Why It s a slideshow in words as the author explains why media giants come, what makes superfans tick, where various pockets of pop culture congregate during the convention, and how the whole shabang is perceived by old timers Never too specific to one franchise but touching on many, this is a quick read from a sympathetic apologist for fandom.


  6. I thoroughly enjoyed this short Kindle single Even though it is a few years old now, I think it is still quite relevant A look at this pop culture phenomenon through the author s eyes I will never be attending Comic Con, which, by the way, covers WAY than comics, so it was a pleasant way for me to enjoy the trip from the comfort of my home Definitely recommended If you have ever been, ever wanted to go or never even heard of it, pick this one up It will hold your attention and not take up a lot [...]


  7. I must confess that I do not think I have the fortitude myself ever to attend Comic Con but this account of it is almost as good as possibly better than actually being there Wise, interesting, funny, vivid I read it in one sitting, couldn t put it down A very good use of the Kindle Single format.


  8. Being that I have been going to Comic Con since 2004, I very much enjoyed this Kindle Single The author describes the event in detail, even the horrendous morning of booking a hotel on your computer This was a great read, whether you have been to Comic Con or not, and I highly recommend it to other readers Once I started the book, I could not put it down
