It’s 1940, and a phony body on exhibit in a carnival sideshow suddenly springs to life and shambles away. Not so phony after all, he is John Doe, radio commentator and archenemy of Detroit’s notorious Purple Gang! But why did he disappear in 1930, and why did the mayor, the mob, and the cops all want him dead?

  1. About charging for autographs. It might be a cultural thing, but I´ve always been kinda bothered by it. Star athletes don´t take money from kids for their autograph, neither should artists or writers, in my opinion. That said, bringing like a pile of books to sign is an act of disrespect too. I wouldn´t even consider ever bringing more than one, the one that matters to me at most. If its a work from artist, like a sketch, I´m fine with paying for it. Its a work of art and paid accordingly.

    In general, I might have too idealistic or socialist view of American entertainment industry, because that´s what comics are but should it always be about money? Could these people sometimes just go and sign that kids book and not make big deal of it? Don´t go to every damn convention 50 weekends a year, just go to two or three. People who really appreciate it will come. Or if they don´t, it might be time to contemplate why. Don´t sign that manchilds 100 books who sells them in ebay anyway, just sign one and tell him to move on. I have really hard time believing someone like William Shatner needs that kids autograph money to come by. Many of these people are millionaires and even if they weren´t they are far from people who are truly poor. They really don´t need the money, just want to get more. I call that greed.

    50+ years ago it might have been a different story, but now none of the people who work for corporation like DC or Marvel will starve. Many people will defend these creators because they have emotional connection to their works, which is fine, I have too, but there are many, many more people who need your sympathies and bucks more.

    When it comes to Neil Adams, hes a full of himself “has been”. There, that took care of it.

  2. First off: Rodrigo, welcome to Washington! I hope you enjoy your new home. If you are west of the mountains, you made it just in time for the 9 months of rain :D

    I’ve never paid for a signature at a comic con, but then I nearly always buy the thing I want signed at the booth. I do always only bring one or two things at the most. As much as I would love Phil and Kaja to sign my full Girl Genius collection, it just seems rude to bring in a stack.

    Fantastic show as always.
