What a great time I had! Meeting all the great people who stopped by the booth (some whom I haven't seen in 15 years-Brian J. and Mark-good seeing ya again...),
-All the great artist and writers...shout out to Ivan...eerrr,I mean Andy,,,mmmmm???? never mind...It was just too cool to chat with all the guys at the FOO (Friends of Oeming) booth.
-Jimmy Gownley (will we see Amanda Rules rag dolls soon????)
-John Romita, Sr, who had a great story about meeting Paul and Linda McCartney of the group Wings (I think Paul was in another band at one time?).
- Also John Romita Jr, who never stopped smiling all day.
-Super nice guy Michael Turner-I wish him well (and to you guys who had him sign 40 to 50 books at one time,how about 4 or 5 books next time-give him a break for pete sakes and give other fans a chance to meet him...yeesh!)
-George Perez, what a fun-lovin' guy!
-Legend Jerry Robinson,one of the creators of the original Joker!
-John Cassaday of Astonishing X-Men fame,who did a sketch for EVERYONE in line!!!
-and finally on Sunday at the end of the show as we were packing up..I looked up to see Mark Waid wading thru our old back issues..super nice, chatty guy!
-Oh, did I mention the girl who stopped by the booth that looked like Storm of the X-Men *whistle*-white eyes and all....!
-Hey Bill,a personal thanks for the hospitality and bringing me along with ya and putting up with my non-stop wit and chatter
-Wait until you all see the Marvel Toon Tumblers...Sweetness!

Ooooh, I forgot to mention seeing Mark (Cadillacs & Dinosaurs) Schultz again and buying a huge print of a dinosaur stampede that he signed "To Fellow Dinosaur Fan Max!" for my son... what a nice guy!

see, I leave the country and miss all the fun stuff. As if being 10 weeks behind on 52 wasn't enough! Next year, I'll be there.
