This weekend is the Pittsburgh Comicon, but it doesn’t seem like many people went or are talking about it. A friend who is attending said no one was there, with retailers wandering the aisles due to lack of business.
That’s probably due to the organizer Michael George recently being found guilty of a 17-year-old murder. Reportedly, there was a movement to boycott the show. I don’t know if that was successful or if people just want to stay away from the whole situation.
The Newsarama blog (link no longer available) has an update on the murder case: George’s attorneys will be heard on May 6 on their motion to have the verdict overturned. If they are unsuccessful, George will serve life in prison.
