How "Free Comic Book Day" played out in Rancho Cucamonga (plus an aside on Twitter)

Perhaps you saw my three posts on Saturday that covered my experience at Free Comic Book Day at Comic Madness in Chino. Well, reporter Mediha Fejzagic DiMartino of the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin covered an event in Rancho Cucamonga at 4 Color Fantasies:

More than 300 people showed up during the first hour of the event. Some were dressed in costumes, others took an opportunity to take a photo with several superhero impersonators roaming around. Dozen artists and writers were on hand to sign autographs and talk about their craft.

Oh, and by the way, even the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin is getting into Twitter now. Check out @ivdailybulletin. They're currently only using it to push out headlines, and aren't following anyone, but at least they're out there.

But for a media Twitter account that pushes headlines AND includes unique content AND follows people AND replies to them, check out @waff48 to see how it's done. There are smart people in Huntsville... :)
