Today is Dragon Con 2011!

It is time!

The Fate of this Awesome Journey

As you know, I started Journey into Awesome to chronicle my research process as I got ready for the Comics and Popular Art Conference at this year’s Dragon*Con. Well, the con is almost here and I’ve been pondering the fate of this blog.

I have decided that after Dragon*Con I’m going to continue my research into the world of real life superheroes and keep the blog going. However, since there are so many comic related topics that I want to discuss, I’ve decided to broaden the blog’s scope a bit.

Now this won’t be the place to talk about who punched who. There are already plenty of sites like that. I’ll be researching and discussing sociopolitical issues, gender representation in comic, and things of that nature.

I hope you’ll continue reading through the transition. I’m really excited about the possibilities and I hope you are too.

Yep, I recently received my acceptance email to present at the 4th Annual Comics and Popular Arts Conference at this year’s Dragon*Con. Last year I was so impressed with a session called Comics, Gender, and the Body that for the rest of the convention all I could think about was submitting an abstract for next year’s conference.
