Mega Mega Mega Con!

Got to go to Mega Con 2012 this past weekend! Amazing--I bought a ticket to get Stan Lee to sign something--and we (everyone in line) was told you couldn't take pictures or shake his hand. BUT when everyone got in the room to see him, everyone was taking pictures and shaking his hand. That's right, I got to shake Stan Lee's hand, great handshake and I didn't wash my hand til' I ate a gyro later on for lunch.

Nick Cardy (age 91) was also present, he was in WW2 as a tank driver and received 2 purple hearts. I saw him on Friday, Saturday and Sunday! He was fantastic, everytime I went up to him I had him sign 5 things-(had a bunch of old silver age aquaman, teen titans and Batman)-so I got a ton signed by him.

Greg Capullo was also present, and I saw him on Friday and then again on Sunday---And he totally remembered me from Friday. "Don't I remember you from the other day!?" He ran out of his limited print early sat (I got one on Friday) The print (of Penguin) was limited to 200--so he saw a lot of faces!

Chuck Dixon, Graham Nolan, David Finch, J Scott Campbell, Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, Phil Noto, Darwyn Cooke, Tim Sale, Bill Sienkiewicz, Tony Bedard, George Perez, Alex Saviuk, Bob Mcleod, Mark Texeira--All Present and got to see!

Awesome weekend at Mega Con and Now Florida Super Con is coming up--on June 29th

Carmine Infantino (creator of Barbara Gordon-Batgirl, Deadman)

Neal Adams (creator of Ra's Al Ghul, Talia, Man Bat)

@Decept-O:

Yeah, it was amazing!

These guys are pretty old and won't be around forever (although I like to pretend they would)!

It has always been a dream to meet Nick Cardy. I did get to see Stan Lee last year--but I got to shake his hand this time.

Carmine is another I have not yet met, same with Neal Adams!

@nszerdy: Understandable. I wouldn't be able to be in the presence of these guys let alone shake their hands. Well, maybe. One of my brothers would kill me if I had the chance and didn't talk to Stan Lee or get his autograph.

I assume you mean Carmine Infantino. Neal Adams definitely would be on the list.

Thanks again for sharing.
