Littlestar and I were both very tired going into day three of WonderCon, and neither of us felt a strong draw to any of the third day panels or events.
We spent some time after our invigorating walk from the Caltrain station talking to Ryan Claytor. Ryan is a cool guy who does a sort of comics journal called And Then One Day. And Then One Day is great both in its physical presentation -- clean lines, great design and silkscreened, velvet covers -- and in its content, which is a straightforward, non-angsty look at Ryan's life. We stopped in a couple times during the week to speak with Ryan, about his MFA program at San Diego State (which sounds just plain old cool), about teaching and so on.
We checked in with a couple other cool folks on the exhibit floor, whom I'll talk about later.
We caught the tail end of the Wildstorm panel, notable chiefly for having Jim Lee there and only about thirty people in the room. We were really waiting for the next panel on writers, hoping to hear from Mark Waid. We were both falling asleep, though, so when Waid wasn't there, we gave up and headed home.
I'll have more on WonderCon purchases later. Overall, we felt that the material we were interested in could have been compressed into two days rather than three.
