It feels a bit ridiculous to make a post explaining an upcoming absence when I’ve already been absent most of the week, but that’s what I’m here to do!
It’s been a crazy few days behind the scenes at Manga Bookshelf, and tomorrow morning I head off to Anime Boston!
Saturday’s programming includes an industry panel from Vertical, the only manga publisher to present one this year (which makes one more than last year), and an evening “Manga Mania” panel featuring some of my favorite manga bloggers (like Brigid Alverson & Erin Finnegan), moderated by Ed Chavez.
I’ll be at the con all day Saturday (and possibly some of Sunday), so please track me down to say hello!

Sounds exciting! Have fun! I haven’t been to a con in a few years, and I was barely there that last time. So crowded and loud. :( Worked a table one year though, which was cool.

AB is a pretty lame con for manga fans, but Vertical’s panel is a big draw for me and I’ll enjoy hanging out with other press. :) It should be fun!
