You can help improve the NYCC!

The New York Comic Con will be coming up on it's fourth year this February 6-8. Anyone who's attended the three previous installments knows it's improved with each year but they still have some kinks to work out. Now you have a chance to help.


Lance Fensterman who runs the official NYCC blog, Medium at Large, is looking for fans to volunteer for a focus group of sorts. In his own words:
I'm organizing a NYCC Confab next Wednesday in NYC (most sane people would call it a focus group, but that just seemed lame - plus I won't be behind a one way mirror) and I'm looking for fans with ideas and opinons about the show to help us make it better. What do you get out of it? Free lunch, free weekend pass, plenty of time to thumb wrestle with me and the pride to know that you helped build a better NYCC in 2009.
This sounds like a great idea, unfortunately I won't be around next Wednesday to participate but I thought I'd spread the word. He says space is limited so contact him soon through the blog if you are interested.

Now, THIS is a really, really cool idea!! It really makes me sadder and sadder that Comicon just hasn't been the same in Chicago since Wizard acquired it years ago.

Yeah, that's right. I don't refer to it as Wizard World Chicago. Just like I don't call Comisky Park here US Cellular Field.

But I digest.

I think this is great that a convention owner is interested in what would make it a bigger hit with the fans. If I lived in NY I most certainly would try and make it to this.

I hope we get an update on how this meeting goes.

Yeah, I think it's a great idea too. I'll keep an eye out on his blog to see if he posts about how it all went.
