Bob Brink, Paul Hutton and I took a cab down to the Jacob Javits Center at ten yesterday and registered for the NY Comic Con. The first seminar on graphic novels started at one, so Paul and I went on down to Ground Zero to see where the towers once stood. Very moving, many people crying. Ate a cup of soup at O'Hara's pub that we recognized from the many documentaries. They were closed for seven months. There were several fire fighters eating lunch in there and that had an eerie effect.
The graphic novel seminars were quite instructive and it was amazing to hear the double-digit growth in this new medium. Sales of $330 million last year got our attention. More later, meeting an executive from HBO. More later
