NY Comic Con:
-So many things to do! So many things to see! So little time! Mostly I wandered around with xturncoatxiii
, and eerisedda
-I met Jim Cheung! He signed comics for me! I got mistaken for his wife which resulted in us going around all weekend saying "Jim Cheung's wife? A horse." (I am sure the real Mrs. Cheung is a wonderful lady, these comments are in no way representative of my feelings towards her.)
-Scott Snyder signed issue 1 of American Vampire for me. We chatted for a few minutes and he promised to get back to me about taking that course with him. (He taught me creative writing my freshman year of college before he broke into comics.)
-Rafael Albaquerque also signed American Vampire. Also he drew me Nightwing and it was awesome.
-I picked up a whole bunch of comics for very very cheap including the first volume of Fables, a gazillion issues of Air and The Unwritten, Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America, and an Iron Man omnibus.
-/Co/ meet-up that I tagged along with xturncoatxiii
to. Geekery was had by all.
-Oh. My. God. Bendis signed The Confession for me. And also Avengers Prime #3. We almost didn't get his signature, but he was nice enough to stay a little bit longer than his signing event was scheduled for.
-Jim Cheung drew me Patriot! Eli is secretly my favorite Young Avenger.
-Chris Giarrusso who draws Mini-Marvels drew me Hawkeye! ahdsljfs When HAWKEYE throws his mighty ARROW-- also he said next week he's putting up an animation to go along with that song on his website.
-Art Baltazar (of Tiny Titans) gave me a doodle of Guy Gardner! My only regret is that I didn't ask him to draw Star Sapphire!Guy.
meet-up was fantastic and everybody was great. Also now I have new fandom friends I can watch cool stuff with! Brb rolling around clutching my face with glee.
-Down side: my camera lens broke and I have to take it in to get a quote for the repair and I really can't afford this right now. But it's a really nice camera and it would be stupid to just get rid of it so I might as well get it over with. /headdesk
I just picked up a shift tomorrow from 9am-6pm. Oh boy. Did I mention I have more homework than God to do for Tuesday? Um, yeah. Fuck.
And finally, I give you the following quote from iambickilometer
who is crashing at our apartment for NYCC: "Oh, if you have to drunk tomorrow then you probably shouldn't get work."
