Author Michael Chabon gave the keynote speech at Comic-Con 2004's Eisner awards. "My son Zeke is here tonight. Hes seven, and he likes comic books. In 1944, if you were a seven year old, you probably knew a dozen other kids your age who were into Captain Marvel and the Submariner and the Blue Beetle. When I was seven, in 1970, I knew three or four. But in his class, in his world, Zeke is unique."
