CAKE 2013

For the past couple of days, I’ve been trying to figure out what I’ve wanted to say about CAKE 2013. Probably the best thing I can say is that it’s reinvigorated my love of comic book shows. Wizard World Chicago and C2E2 have both morphed into these large, generic shows that are as much about the spectacle (if not more) than they are about comics. I’ve greatly enjoyed C2E2 but it’s not like I’ve come out of there the last couple of years excited about comics in that “Yay! Comics!” kind of way. It’s been more like “yay… geek/nerd consumerism culture. You go, girl,” as I’ve left McCormick place.
