Here it is! The anticipated haul of goodies from Planet Comicon this year.
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.
We’re heading into a new year, and with it, I’m steadily working on plans to make it a great year for Wandering NerdGirl. This is a rough idea of how I aim to approach next year, and there is always room to add or remove things.
There have been several celebrity guests announced so far, but we’re finally getting to the ones I’m more interested in for this con – comic guests!
First announced is prettttty exciting:
My haul from this con is more signature based, than things purchased, though I did buy some things while there.
Met Tom King again, and had these pretties signed.
The decision to go to Planet Comic Con was fairly last minute, and I’m amazed we managed to pull it off successfully. But, my mom and I have a weird amount of skill in handling last minute trips fairly well.
So, why the random journey?
Simple answer: My mom wanted to meet Jason Momoa.
It’s no secret that my faaaaaaaavorite movie is The Boondock Saints. I’ve written papers on the techniques used in it for my film class, watched it countless numbers of times, and even have some nifty neato stuff like posters, some canvas prints, and a fairly badass lamp, figures. Plus shirts. Etc. You get the idea. This is MY movie.
It also just so happens I’ve gotten to meet the three above individuals (my favorite guys in the movie, too): (from left to right) Sean Patrick Flanery, David Della Rocco, and Norman Reedus. Yes, the very same Norman Reedus that plays Daryl on The Walking Dead. I have hugged the Reedus. He has called me Batman. ALL YOUR JEALOUSY IS UNDERSTANDABLE.
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:
So, bravo for that, WW! Thank you for making that aspect more enjoyable.
