Get Thee To Javits Center
Why? Do I have to actually tell you? This isn't about geeks and freaks, people; this is about the mainstream. This is about an entertainment form that in penetrating every media platform - from television to films to games to books to educational material. Don't believe me? Check this out, from a press release I received a couple of weeks back:
Dreams and schemes! Alliances and betrayals! Murder and mayhem! Passions and poisons! Shakespeare has it all, and now you can experience the action and appreciate the intrigue in Shakespeare -- The Manga Edition!
I am talking about Hamlet, Julius Caesar, Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet. How could you possibly think to miss this? If only as an anthropological or sociological exercise into consumerism -- but mainly to ensure that you are there first -- get out of your chair and ivory "reality" tower and see where the future lies, my friends.
