Went to Wondercon 20 this year. While it was fun, it was also a bit of a letdown compared to prior years. I hope that this is not the trend for the future and maybe just a sign that 2006 is getting off to a slower start than in previous years. I am hoping, but I kind of doubt it. Sales have been slumping for years in the comic book industry as with any collectibles considering that people have far less disposable income due to mounting gas prices and credit card bills. I will be attending San Diego later this year and will be at Lee's Comics booth if anyone wants to say "hi".
