Tom Heintjes is the editor of Hogan’s Alley, a journal that explores the history and influence of comics and cartoonists, and writes articles such as “Crossing the Color Line (in Black and White): Franklin in Peanuts,” and “Flannery O’Connor: Cartoonist.” In other words, he is accustomed to thinking about comic books seriously.
If you thought all Dragon Con attendees did was sit in panels, cosplay, and debate who was a better captain of the Enterprise, you might be surprised to find out that the convention boasts a pretty active nightlife scene, albeit a little different from what you might find in Buckhead.
As the rain started pouring down on Peachtree Street, the entrants in Saturday’s Dragon Con Cosplay Contest prepared to strut across the stage while a sold-out house of fans, many soggy from waiting outside, filed into a Hyatt convention room to watch.
Whether your enthusiasms lean toward the literary, the leisurely, or death-defying speed, you can find a way to indulge them over the long weekend.
