Nate, Dave, James and I went for all three days. We spotted lots of Boba Fetts, ate out every day (we did Genki Sushi twice ‘cos they were doing $1 plates and are delicious!), sat in on lots of panels, and got to meet a lot of neat cartoonists/writers. Good times!
I’m a little bit in love with Sergio Aragonés. I got to ask if his story about scaring Marty Feldman to death was true and he says it is!* I was so charmed by Sergio and his marvelous moustache, I couldn’t find my camera when it was actually still around my wrist. Thanks to Nate for snapping the photo!
Colleen Coover kindly agreed to sketch me this cheeky princess even though the con was almost over and she was done with commissions. She shares my belief that all princesses should have ringlets. :-)
At the Super panel with James Gunn (Tromeo and Juliet, Slither, PG Porn) and Rainn Wilson (Dwight on The Office and Bill/FISH BOY in House of 1000 Corpses). I think I took this right when Phoenix Jones (not pictured) started asking people to tase him. Just a personal note: James Gunn has always reminded me of my friend David Ginn. They’re both wildly creative and kinda sick- but in the best way. They’re the sort of guys I wish I could have known in high school. Oh! We ended up running into James Gunn the next morning at Angela’s Starbucks- bonus fan moment.
Mike Mignola, Pia Guerra, and Frank Quitely (his team beat my team in pub trivia on Monday but it’s cool. He’s a real nice guy.)
Fantagraphics! That’s Jacq with Megan Kelso on the left. Kristy and Gavin on the right.
The Fanta booth was my meet up point when I got lost. Of course, I think it’s the perfect home-base.
*There are a lot of other, larger factors that contributed to Marty Feldman’s death, but still- woah!
