Take your kids to comics day
Thursday was the annual Take Your Kids to Work Day (used to be Take Your Daughters to Work Day until the gender that rule the world started whining about the one little thing in which they weren’t front and center, but that’s another story), which always happens the day after Secretaries Day (otherwise known as Ignore Your Secretary Day and give her so much work for the rest of the week that she’s too busy and tired to blog for ComicMix, but that’s another story). But this weekend features what I like to call Take Your Kids to Comics Day.
It’s the first ever Kids’ Comic Con, and ComicMix (okay, li’l ol’ me) will be there for the inaugural celebration! We’ll be at the Bronx Community College throughout the day, snapping photos and maybe even scoring some interviews for Mellifluous Mike Raub’s podcasts.
As we’ve mentioned before, lots of cool folks will be there, including Kyle Baker and the Comics Bakery (separate folks despite the name; the latter is Marion Vitus and Raina Telgemeier and John Green and Dave Roman) and Jamal Igle and Jane Fisher and — well, pretty much my peeps. Should be tons of fun — nothing makes me smile more than seeing kids with comics! Say, did you know that "I believe that children are the future"?
A big round of applause to Alex Simmons for bringing everyone together for this event. Time to get ready!
