Normally I'm not one to go around perpet uating any memes, but Yoink on the other hand...

So, yeah, OTAKON! As always, I'm writing this the night before I leave for the con, so by the time you read it you'll know more about Otakon 2012 than I presently do. Also as always, I'm hoping to have the actually comics up by Wednesday, though that all depends on how well Real Life cooperates.

And there's an EXTRA special announcement concerning this year's Otakon comics that I don't want to spoil JUUUUUUST yet. At the very least, I want to save the announcement for a time when I've actually slept again. Oh, that'll be the day...

EDIT: Well, as I feared, the Wednesday update just isn't going to happen. From the way things are going now, it looks like the earliest I'll get this material finished and online is Friday night/Saturday morning. SORRY! If it's any consolation, what I've got so far might almost be worth the wait!

Tale to Share
I can't not share this story with you since I adore your comics.

My group stayed at the Holiday Inn Inner Harbor this year for Otakon. We were at the desk last Thursday night to ask a question. While we were getting our answer, a guy came up to the desk and told the person working the desk that they had found a severed toe in their room. He even had a picture of it and showed it to the lady at the desk, who promptly called security to check it out.

We went back to our room laughing hysterically and making jokes about checking our toes each morning to make sure we hadn't lost one in the night. It was too funny!

Hope you had a wonderful Otakon! Can't wait to see your pages for this year!

Wait a minute... that's the same hotel that I was in...

*checks toes*

Ha, you were in the Holiday Inn too? Hope you have all your toes then! :P

Though I wouldn't be surprised if you did a comic page on it, I was just curious as to how you thought the meme shouting went this year. I thought it was practically non-existent for once. There were a few weak attempts to start Marco Polo, however they always seemed to be ignored but for a couple of half-hearted answers. What was your experience?

You know, I'd actually forgotten about doing a meme-shouting comic for this very reason. There really WASN'T much this year. The only time I heard a Marco that didn't fall flat on its face was when Hidetaka Tenjin (if my notes are correct) got the Opening Ceremonies crowd to do it. Looks like the plague is finally dying off!!!

...well, three WAS one instance where I heard some genuinely funny crowd shouting, but I think I'll save that for comic time :D

The only place where the meme shouting was out of hand was in the line for the Abridged panel...ugh. Otherwise, I think people are actually not caring about memes anymore! :D
