The trouble is you need to have that cross-media interest to get as
many people in the door as you can. Although, I really do think San
Diego has taken it overboard, I can not really blame them. How much
more do you think they get for a 'booth' from the movie companies,
than they do from a comic company. Plus, the people you are trying to
reach comes to you, in fact, they PAY to come to you and you get to
basically stay in your backyard, it is a no brainer. I know the
Comicon has tried to find a balance. I hope Baltimore tries to find a
balance as well. I would really hate for it become like a Wizard
show, all glam and flash, and, oh yeah, here are some comics.

> Yep, we'll be there. It's usually a very nice show, but last year I
noticed a big focus on media. I hope they're not trying to ape
Comicon in this aspect.
> BTW, The SPXPO is also coming up. That's a very nice show too.
