Saturday, my best friend and I decided to make pizza fries and bask in our love for Kevin Smith by watching Jay & Silent Bob Reboot together for the first time.Continue reading
This has been a long awaited tale, for many. One of my greatest adventures from a little over three years ago.
The story of my spontaneous trip to Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash for Comic Book Men.
So, early last year I picked up the Art of Harley Quinn book, and decided around the time of my first two cons of the year, I’d start having artists sign it that were in the book or worked on Harley art I love.
I decided to ask my followers on Instagram (@angelyoung13 for anyone interested) to suggest some favorites they’d like to know. So, here were some of my top favorites I was asked for:
The last two weekends, I’ve wanted to do some mini trips to comic shops, etc. And, the last two weekends, the weather has decided to snow a ton and keep me cooped up in the house.
So, I decided to take the day off Friday and get some things done, so I’d still have down time Saturday and Sunday. Everybody needs a break sometimes, right?
Before I say anything, I will immediately give Wizard World STL credit for one thing:
This was definitely an improvement on several of my disappointments from last year, specifically:
- The celebrity guests were better organized, like they used to be, and not in some weird maze of tables in the middle of the room.
- There were considerably more vendors – of comics, as well as a variety of others. This was a pretty big deal to me, last year. I was on a mission to buy comics, and only had a handful of vendors to choose from.
So, bravo for that, WW! Thank you for making that aspect more enjoyable.
For the last month, roughly, I’ve been an exceptionally busy gal on the weekend. Between the first weekend of February until the first weekend of March, I’ve been at some sort of con every other weekend:
- Wizard World St Louis
- Planet Comic Con (in Kansas City)
- STL Comics Winter One-Day
HOLY EXHAUSTION, BATMAN! My poor wallet hurts.
However, it was a pretty fun to have so many, so close together, to compare how different they felt. Different levels and experiences, etc. So, while I plan to post about each one individually, I’d like to take a moment to compare the three.
