I would like to personally apologize for the shorter-than-average post tonight. Internet service was out for most of the evening, so I spent the night catching up with friends and family. Now that this is out of the way, let’s move onto the content

Earlier tonight, I receied word that the panel application I was waiting on was accepted. Because of this, I’m pleased to announce that Sam Kusek, Ken from Sequential Ink, and I will host the “East to West: the Superheroes of Japan & America” panel at Anime Boston on Saturday, April 23 at 8:00 PM.

This is both exciting on a number of levels. I’ve never hosted an actual panel, so the opportunity presents a number of new challenges and worries. Mostly, I’m just hoping that I can perform well, without coming across as a pompous ass. However, aside from that, I hope that I am prepared for the 60-minute event.

To prepare for the event, I’ll be writing a short series of blog-posts on the topic. The first has already been published, but I would like to release at least two more before the big day. In particular, I’d like to highlight the overt similarities of the two formats, as well as the less obvious undertones that link the two.

Preparation will be a tall order, and a hell of a challenge as time grows shorter. Because of this, I hope that you, dear reader, will forgive the occasional short-post or extra “off-night.” I do not like to cop out on content, but I may just have to make the sacrifice. I thank you for your patience, and your support. Hopefully, I’ll see you in Boston this year!
