I'm writing this from Sacramento. Yes you read that right, Sacramento. I am at a comic and anime convention that the boyfriend is showcasing his comics at. We were at image expo in Oakland last "weekend so I've been up to my eyeballs in nerddom.
The differences in nerds from comic nerds to anime nerds is palpable. Comic nerds are far less likely to dress up as their favorite characters. The anime crowd also seems to be younger. There are so many more teenagers here than at image. I am Mindoro saddened that these kids are not reading comic but I think they will get there eventually. I am however thrilled that kids are coming out and supporting small comics.
So if you're in Sacramento today come out and support your local nerds and help save me from the fanboys.
