Hey guys! Thanks to so many of you that have checked in about the lack of a new episode of Acmecast at 9:00 AM EST today! It means a lot that you guys can't wait to hear what we have to say about what's going on in the world of comics and the comics we have at the table!
As much fun as this week's been here at Comic-Con, it has not been without it's triumphs and tribulations! It took me the better part of 24 hours to make it out to the left coast, including five bookings, three missed connections, and three legs of a trip that brought me to sunny San Diego without my speaking voice.
Wednesday night, as Preview night wrapped up, we found out that we were not finalists for the Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailing Award. Aside from just traveling 2,500 miles for that very reason, preparation for the nomination process takes a lot of time and money and even with everything out here to take our minds off the pass, it's tough not to lose the wind in your sails.
I know, I know. Personal problems. But we want to save the good stuff for for the show.
And there will be a show! We're in much higher spirits and well rested. We're finally wrapping our heads around this whole time zone thing.
We've enjoyed hitting our deadline for the last year and a half and we look forward to getting back on track when we get home. I'm nothing if not a creature of habit.
We appreciate your understanding and attention every week!
Stay tuned for Acmecast #86!
