No more convention writeup, because Sunday went much the way Saturday went, only the crowds were shorter and younger because it was kids’ day.
But I was left with a question: did anyone go to any of the debated Women in Comics panels? I heard that several of the supposed panelists didn’t even attend the joke setup with Jenna Jameson. How did they go?
Update: Heidi posts a writeup by Steve Bunche.
There to shill both Zombie Strippers and the comic book that she supposedly created — Shadow Hunter, a book that looked to me like yet another entry from the school of Witchblade knockoffs — Jameson displayed far more passion for and knowledge of horror movies than she did for comics, quite obviously betraying an ignorance of the medium and allowing [Amanda] Conner to field most of the questions relating to the stuff that the real fans and creators would know and understand. When describing her collaboration with Shadow Hunter‘s scripter, Witchblade co-creator Christina Z, it was apparent to many in the audience that Jameson most likely had never even spoken to the writer, at which point what little credibility Jameson had built up with the comics cognoscenti present rocketed down the proverbial bowl.
In short: it was full of people who only wanted to get a picture of the former porn star.
