On to other, more lofty, topics. A lot of game companies were exhibiting at ComicCon this year. And now I'm getting tons of invitations to GenCon as well. It's strange to watch the transformation of these shows as they turn from fringe industry and fan events into commercial juggernauts. Even some of the game-specific conventions are getting huge, and are featuring the world's creepiest weddings. I have photos and she has to be at least 20 years older than he is.

Did any of you go to ComicCon this year? GR's Greg Damiano was there, and if you really want to see how much it has changed, check out this photo gallery from ComicCon in 1982.
