Did you know that Red Sonja was created by an Italian comicbook writing and drawing team?
No, that's a lie. Don't believe a word of that. The only reason I bring up anything Italian is because right now, as I type this, LUCCA COMICS AND GAMES is going on full tilt, and damn it all - I can't go. Yes, it's true that I just got back from a whirlwind tour of comic conventions and I've said on more than one conversation since I've gotten home that a fifth convention would've probably killed me. But wouldn't it be an awesome way to 'go out' if I went in Italy? And at a comicbook convention where I couldn't understand anything, no less?! Ah... that would be awesome, I think? Maybe not.
So for now, I'll relegate myself to watching VIDEOS of everyone else's experience at Lucca (which closely resembles the cattle drive that is SDCC combined with the unnerving cosplay fervor of AX) and in the off chance that I'll somehow, someday, end up in Italy, I'm going to work on perfecting the one Italian phrase that I know will come in handy regardless of any situation.
"Dov'é il bagno?"
Hmm... come to think of it, would I really want to go considering that I despise the massive, border line uncontrollable crowds at SDCC? This may deserve more thought.
Nah - f*ck that. I'd go in a heartbeat. Have a great weekend everyone!
