I've enjoyed the past three days to the fullest. I couldn't have asked for a better first comic- con experience then from what I received. First off, I want to thank Sara and Tom for everything that they did. You just can't ask for nicer people.
Friday was spent all day, for the most part, getting comics autographed and finally getting an amazing sketch by Francis Manapul of Batman. It was pretty awesome to finally be there though. After the con though, I got to hang out with Sara, Tom, and a few other people in a nearby restaurant which served pretty good pizza. It was a very fun night, and if you have seen them in front of the camera, that is exactly how they are face to face. We all chatted, ate, laughed, and then parted ways. That is until the next day.
On Saturday, I actually found Sara by the Sega booth and Tom came by as well. I gotta admit, I'm no expert on Wonder Woman, but it was fun being part of the 30 Second quick round on some Wonder Woman facts. Also, being part of the trivia is what I've wanted to do since I saw it being done in San Diego, and I am happy to say that I got something right. I actually got to tag along with Sara, Aaron, and Drew all day long. There were a lot of laughs and good times. We got to see some really cool footage of the Thor video game and the surprisingly good, but oddly familiar, playable demo of Captain America. While Sara would interview the people she needed to interview, there were some moments of courageousness between Aaron, Drew, Jeff, and I. The most memorable? While Sara spoke to Sterling Gates,(who later on went to play the Michale Jackson Experience video game with Sara), Jeff acted as a bodyguard, making sure no one would cross in front of the camera. We got a few laughs from that. Also, Lucky Sara, got to go up on stage and sit next to Stan Lee and interview him while he did his signing. There was so much that went on in that one day and i loved every minute of it. It felt as if I really did make some friends with everything that went on. Being honorary interns for the day, as it was put. Before it was all said and done, we all sat down and got to talk about everything. It was the best day of the entire weekend.
Sunday wasn't too busy. All that really went on was more signatures. I got to meet Gail Simone, Amanda Conners, who did a cool quick sketch of Power Girl for me, David FInch who signed all of my issues of Brightest Day and more. All and all, I can't wait to go back. I can't wait to hopefully see everyone again next year.
