So I’m no longer a comic book convention virgin. (Hmm, there’s got to be a joke in that line somewhere. Maybe it’s too obvious.)
NYCC was a blast — the perfect way to spend a weekend while your family is out of town.
I got to cross three more comic giants off of my list — David Mazzucchelli, Bill Sienkiewicz and Chris Claremont — and I even met them in the order I had them in my last post. Wild.
I left some people off of my hit list who were not scheduled to be at the conference, but ones I plan to meet in the future. Frank Miller, John Byrne, Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Jerry Ordway and there are easily a few dozen more who escape me because I’ve been out of comics for so long.
Plus I still need that solid 60 second conversation with Stan Lee so I can thank him for that 11th birthday tour.
