Believe it or not...
The highlight of my visit to Comic Con NY 2009!
Considering I was under the weather, I was walking on air...okay, this can get really corny so I'd better rein it in. I couldn't find my camera on Saturday; thankfully Tiege had his uber-fantastic Nikon on hand, and also stepped in when I wanted to meet William Katt but turned seriously starstruck. I've gotten tongue-tied before, but this was serious! I suppose this is because 'The Greatest American Hero' was my favorite show as a child, and it still holds a special place in my heart.
Who would reduce you to a polite stammer?
It was all around fun, despite being propelled by sneezes and looking a bit wrecked. I'm home sick today - darn I thought I'd make it through the winter! Anyway, not everyone knows about the comic book nerd in me - actually I mostly watch the cartoon versions, I don't own any comic books, just a few graphic novels. It's just fun, and certainly a release between my thick classical novels and history books. If I could draw at all I'd totally make a Tea Queen comic, but don't expect to see it anytime soon.
I also saw quite a few Batmans, and Nurse Jokers, Ninja Turtles, and enough Storm Troopers to last a decade. Too fun - I'm sure I'll be back next year - hopefully sans Kleenex.
