Anyone going to this in October?


I'll be there on the Friday doing double duty helping out with coverage for Bleeding Cool.

I plan on stalking Jim Zubkavich (assuming he's there) and arm wrestling Anthony Daniels. I'm also hoping to see a friend of mine who works for Dark Horse.

If any of you dudes are going to be there on Friday, let me know.

With an array of costumes previously worn by the likes of Christopher Reeve, Henry Cavill, Brandon Routh, Dean Cain and Tom Welling - the scope of this epic exhibit will expand the publisher's convention presence beyond the floor of the Jacob Javitz Center and into the building's public entryway - making DC's expanded footprint undeniable to convention attendees and the public at large, and making for a convention-wide

DC Entertainment will further put its stamp on this year's convention through appearances by some of the biggest creative names in the comic book industry - including the writers and artists from Batman, Green Lantern and Superman family of titles, MAD Magazine and many more. Legendary author Neil Gaiman's acclaimed SANDMAN series will also be a highlight as fans clamor for the first issue of

No doubt you'll have a blast. If you happen to trip over a first printing of Avatar's Uber #0, save it for me, haha. I missed it first run and it is scarce to say the least. Picked up the "enhanced" edition last week, reprint with a bunch of extra stuff but I'd still like one as I have the rest of 'em first print.

Some cool stuff there from Avatar, I get all of those save for Extinction Parade. Love that Crossed cover, haha. Jonathan Hickman (God Is Dead) lives here, he's a nice guy. Used to see him at the comic store every week and we would rap about comics for an hour or so all the time. The dumbass that owns the store would have a literal foot high stack of shit for Hickman to sign every week (he does a lot of stuff for Marvel), not compensating him in any way for this, not even free comics. He finally quit coming in and I don't blame him.
