There was a ton going on this weekend, in Baltimore, in cyberspace, and here in New York. Here are some highlights.
- The New York Anime Festival showed record attendance. Up 16% from last year, which is great to hear.
- The Ignatz Awards were announced. Congratulations to Jordan Crane, Nate Powell, and for the Kramers Argot, which is sitting on my To-Read list. Brian Heater at the Daily Cross Hatch has video of the ceremonies.
- David Finch, Sim, Niko Henrichon and Cameron Stewart all won at the Shuster Awards. And if you haven’t been reading Stewart’s spectacular webcomic, Sin Titulo, you should begin doing so: now.
- The video from the set of Iron Man 2 from the EW perspective looks massively annoying in the usual EW fashion. I don’t know why they care about U2′s Chris Martin’s kids with Gwyneth Paltrow but that’s annoying.
