I would seriously invest SO MUCH into a VR drone that could go to conventions for me

You know, there was a time when I would lie awake late Saturday night/early Sunday morning and feel depressed that there was only one more day of convention left. These days... well, there it is. That's not so much a jab at the state of conventions today as a jab at me personally, but I really do get waaaaay more excited at the thought of going back home and taking off whatever ridiculous costume I was wearing than I ever did back in my younger days.

But yeah, that's all for Wake Forest Mini Comic Con! Except, of course, not really. There's still a couple more pages that'll be going up on Patreon later, though I still have to finish up the rest of the Patreon-exclusive Animazement pages before that. In the meantime, if you want more Conventional Wisdom, fear not! Starting next week, we return to that little-known local event called ConCONcon!

...oh, and there's also the Digimon stuff. I've been flooding literally every social media outlet Conventional Wisdom has with Digimon material all month, and that'll keep going for another week and a half. So if you aren't already, keep an eye out for that!

@ Blitz: I thought you would have remembered a feeling akin to this from when you lived in the same town as one of the major conventions.

Admittedly, that was a large town, and the con lasts 3+ days, but you still had the ability to sleep in your own bed after a meal that you might have on a reasonable weekday.

See, the funny thing is that you just described one of the reasons I moved to that major city in the first place... and one of the major reasons I wound up leaving. I THOUGHT I'd be able to just sleep at home and avoid getting a room, but I never once actually could. Even when the con was literally on the same street I walked down to go work (MANY blocks farther down, but still) the logistics of just walking/riding the metro across town never made sense. I wasn't gonna hoof it across town in a costume, late night panel stuff kept stretching past when the trains stopped running, and once I started doing Artist Alley stuff that was even MORE I couldn't drag around on foot. If I'd had a vehicle, maybe, but nobody who actually lived in DC could afford the horrendous cost of PUTTING a vehicle anyplace in a town that crowded. It's actually a lot easier for me to commute to and from a convention now, where there's more of a drive but I at least have a van to carry stuff in.

Y'know, when I click on that link to ConCONcon in your author comments, it just gives me the message "File Does Not Exist"
Very Meta. Even if it's inadvertently so.
