Heidi MacDonald posted about Cape on her super cool blog. It's particularly amusing because there's a photo of Melissa and Aimee in their roller derby gear. In the report, Heidi was a bit skeptical of the numbers (6,000 in attendance) based on the photos. Although, I'd say that's a safe estimate since it was steady come-and-go traffic from 10 AM to 6 PM.

Also, if someone has Heidi's e-mail address (I don't), can you let her know she doesn't have Viper Comics listed on her publishers links? We need some love from The Beat.

Luke posted this amusing and slightly melancoly comic strip about Free Comic Book Day. Geek Like Me by Mark Hay and Aaron Wilson -- highly recommend this comic. I sympathize with Dylan. I wish Cape didn't detract from local events at other area stores, because I love all the DFW retailers. I've spent money in every single comic shop with 100 miles of my house... uh, you can decide for yourself if that's something to be proud of. At the same time, I'm happy for the success Zeus Comics has had. They've gone above and beyond the call of duty (and rational thought) in supporting my own work. I greatly appreciate it. Not to say other stores haven't, they have, but... you get the idea.
