Now, I'm no longer so sure about next year, either.
C2E2 finally put up its list of talent and exhibitors (just a month and a half before the show. Well, they are still technically faster with it than ACen). Last year no DC again (they haven't been there since I think the second year), no Dark Horse, no IDW, no Boom, no Papercutz. Although Image turned up.
Looking through the list this year?
Unless I am missing something, Marvel will not bother with a convention floor presence this year.
Still no DC. Action Labs, Zenescope, Valiant, Lion Forge, and Caliber will be there. No Image. No Dynamite.
I'm shocked. Listening to the pros, they keep saying that Reed really knows how to treat the talent, and they have enough pull that you'd think comic publishers would be lining up around the block to appear.
Enjoy C2E2 this year. God only knows how much longer it will last.
