last time i went to hero con (1997? 1998?) the fire marshals almost shut down the con 2 days early because the line for the Top Cow guys was a fire hazard and they moved the line around like 10 times in different directions....
i've been out of comics for 2 years (25,000+ books) and they only person i'd like to meet again is Collen Doran. Every con we're at, we always trade glances, even the Small press expo...plus she sold me her "let's learn japanese" books dirt cheap. we were becoming quite the friends, but now i bet she forgotten about me
there's always carla speed mcneil though my girl at the time and i would send her bootlegs of "Key the metal idol" to listen to while she inked her book. she lived in annapolis, md, so that's just down the road from me...
ok, i'm rambling, time to go ^_^

Well, I had a lovely 6 or so hr drive from Va Beach tonight. God Bless XM Radio, as I got to listen to ESPN radio the whole way here. Oh, and on the wacky Channel X, I heard the Cardigans cover Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.
I saw the programming today on the web site and it's like a pared-down SD. Dont know how much I'll see, unless I start floating away from the table, as I am want to do.
Banded together from remote galaxies are 13 of the most sinister villains of all-time: The Legion of Doom. Dedicated to a single objective: the conquest of the universe.
I would LOVE to have XM radio, and I would also love to have a DSL or cable connection, but Hasbro keeps coming out with all this cool Star Wars stuff, and I can't seem to cut back the number of comics I collect, and my wife and I just bought a house this week, etc. etc. etc.
Hope you're having a good time at the show. I need to check newsarama and see if any news is being made there this weekend.
One of the hardest parts of relocating to St. Louis is 1) having to order Sierra Mist everywhere because almost everybody carries Pepsi products instead of Coke and 2) hearing people say pop instead of soda (or even Coke).
