This Is What Comic Conventions Are About

My rant about SDCC the other day (“Comic Con, No More!“) was fueled, in large part over the fact that I feel that there’s a generation that is missing out on great comic book convention experiences.

Which is why I smiled when I saw the article, “When Matt Fraction teamed up with the littlest Vision” (Robot 6)

Matt Fraction and Christian (aka The Vision)

According to Shaun Manning’s article for CBR, Christian — in full Vision attire — asked a question of the panel, and Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada invited him to the dais. He even got a hand-scrawled placard.

This kid is awesome.

Marvel Comics is awesome.

Joe Quesada continues to be the coolest Editor-In-Chief since Stan Lee.

Everyone at this panel now has a shared experience that brings them closer to the comic book community.

How many of the “Hollywood” panels had the littlest Vision on their stage?

[PS I want to point you to Whitney’s “Comic-Con pics ‘n’ reflections: Why I loved ’09 (but it still wasn’t perfect)” on PopCandy where she does an excellent job, as always, of summing up so many of my thoughts about the subject]
