What I would like to know is whether there are any editors at cons who look at writing, not at art. I went to the Wondercon in SF a few years ago, toting around a bunch of copies of my comic script, trying to find an editor who'd read 'em - not there, of course, but someone who'd take a look at them and get back to me. I walked around for hours, and didn't find a single person who'd fit the bill. It was very disheartening. Oh, and yeah, that poor kid. This was obviously his Dad's idea, and he wishes desperately that he was somewhere else. The experience probably turned him off comics for life.
