Tom Spurgeon

May 27th, 2008 | comics talk

At some point during (San Diego Comics Convention) weekend, the writer Warren Ellis will realize he’s not in San Diego and will spend the next 20 minutes dancing joyfully like Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof.

  1. Can we stream the video, please?

  2. I understand why a comic-con would be completely hellish but hopefully you will come to San Diego sometime in the next few years. I want to gibber inane questions about your work…which I guess is why you don’t like the cons…my annoying fandom is out of love and admiration.
    I would also like to see this dance video.

  3. I was there last year. I don’t think I’ll be back for many years.

  4. i dont blame warren. there was a time when the con was a great place to go, hang, meet with creators and other fans.

    and then the kirby prophecy came true, and hollywood swept down upon the con and took it over, and the con grew into an unwieldy size.

    and just like that, gone were the days when one could sit and talk for an hour with neil adams about the big bang, where one could be derided by brian azarello, where an aging fanboy could head over to the back of the con and find where they had hidden the greats of the golden and silver age.

    im sure warren wouldnt have liked those days either…but at least one could move around and the smell of arm pit didnt waft through the air
