What… is… up… EVERYONE???!
Well, would like to say that I had a nice, relaxing week off from my editorial duties here at GGOrlando. But, instead, it was mostly stress as my graduation approaches. My study group proves time-and-time again why I run GGOrlando by myself (at least, for the time being).
Anyways, to jump back two weeks to the Mark Waid/Coliseum of Comics controversy, was privileged enough to get a response from both parties. Shortly following the GGOrlando blog post on the fray, a comment was added by Coliseum of Comics Kissimmee manager Joe Littrell.
So, at least someone working for the chain has some common sense. After posting a tweet stating that, in fact, Coliseum of Comics had not banned Mark Waid’s books, the writer himself responded:
So, that happened. And so is this… Here’s what’s happening this week at Generation Geek!
- Monday: Local Spotlight – Comic Central
- Tuesday: A special 2-fer…
- 11AM – n00bTube: The State of the Marvel U (feat. local AvX release parties)
- 2PM – New Home Video & Video Game Releases feat. Kinect Star Wars
- Wednesday: This Week in Comics feat. American Vampire #25
- Thursday: GGOrlando Event Calendar feat. Galactic Empire Charity Lunch
- Friday: GGOrlando Editorial – The 13-Episode Series
As yesterday was the first day of the month, if you have any special local geeky events upcoming that you would like to promote, e-mail them into firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, just one month away is Free Comic Book Day! The FBCD post will run on May 2nd, but if any local stores would like to submit their FBCD events in early, it’d be much appreciated. Unfortunately, yours truly will be attending my brother’s college graduation in Tampa that day, so will miss out on all of the awesome going on around town.
Anyways geeks, have an incredible week!
