This past weekend was the second annual King Con, a comic convention held at the Brooklyn Lyceum. While I was unable to attend due to social obligations (and admittedly I forgot the convention was even happening), King Con wasn’t the only event going on that Sunday. As luck would have it, Sunday was also the New York City Marathon, which runs through all five boroughs for as long as it takes to cross the finish line. The Lyceum happened to be right in the path of the marathon, making it a bit difficult for con-goers to get from the subway to their final destination. Bree Rubin and her webcomic Sex, Drugs and June Cleaver did a strip displaying the Frogger-esque crossing that was necessary that day.
The convention was a four-day affair, so at least there were three unobstructed days to cross the street like a normal human being. Still, I hope that most of the attendees managed to enjoy their unexpected exercise.
