City Paper Comics Jam 2007 A Pretty Fun Thing We'll Probably Never Do Again

Posted 9/12/2007

With last weekend's Baltimore Comic-Con in the rearview mirror, Otakon a distant memory, and the Small Press Expo about a month away, we find ourselves wondering what comics readers do the rest of the year, when major regional comics festivals aren't in full swing. Besides reading comics, that is. One place we wouldn't be surprised to find them is the Geppi's Entertainment Museum, the downtown repository of Diamond Comic Distributors chief Steve Geppi's mind-bogglingly huge collection of classic comic books, toys, and other pop-culture artifacts. So we sent City Paper contributing writer Violet Glaze to investigate, and she came back with a report on not only the museum but also the health of the comic-book industry and the characters that built it. Beyond that, our Comics Issue is often full of, well, stories about comics, but this year we've decided to fill up the rest of the comics portion of the issue with, um, comics. We dunned a bunch of local artists into getting together and doing a jam comic; check out how it turned out. And, of course, there's our annual Comic Contest itself.
