Bob Ingersoll

By day Bob Ingersoll was an attorney in the Cuyahoga County Public Defender Office, Appellate Division in Cleveland, Ohio, until he retired in 2009. But in the “Real World” he has also been a freelance writer since 1975, when he sold his first comic-book story to the late, lamented Charlton Comics. He’s still at it and, in addition to his long-running column “The Law Is a Ass” has sold stories to DC, Marvel, Innovation, Now Comics, Comico, Kitchen Sink and others; as well as co-authoring the novels Captain America: Liberty’s Torch and Star Trek: The Case of the Colonist’s Corpse. Bob is married with children, which is about as close to Al Bundy as he cares to get.

  1. I have to wonder where Agent Solomon was coming from, and what she’d seen before showing up in Broxton, to bring her to say such a thing, though.

    SHIELD’s an international operation, after all…

    James, as a lifelong San Diego rdseient and attendee of Comic-Con for 10 years, I feel that I must point out that what you’re suggesting would kill the con. Yes, it’s become extremely crowded and perhaps too Hollywood-centric, but Comic-Con was never JUST about comics. It has always included science fiction and fantasy works from any medium. It would be impossible to draw the line at this point and say this can be at Comic-Con, and that can’t. Furthermore, selling tickets for individual panels would also be a bad idea and a huge problem for poor bastards like me (unless they completely eliminated the registration cost, but that will never happen if anything, it’s going to continue increasing). I would not pay money to go to each panel, even if I was guaranteed a seat. Yes, there are problems with the con that get worse every year, and no, I don’t know how to solve them, but what you’re suggesting would be completely unprecedented. I don’t think that Comic-Con needs to be essentially destroyed and remade.
