New York Comic Con 2008 Wrap Up

Hey gang,Not to be melodramatic, but, I think NYCC might've been a big changing point in my career. Maybe it was being back in the East Coast, and having the realization that I've come a long way since leaving Boston, New York, and Pittsburgh behind seven years ago, or maybe it was just the infectiously good time Christina and I had, but, I feel like I'm turning to the next chapter of my career, my life, and my future.

The big difference between New York Comic Con and San Diego Comic Con is size. The more important difference is that San Diego is populated by people who understand that you walk to the right, whereas New York seemed to be populated by people who think they can breakdance in the aisle if they want to and you go fuck yourself if you're not cool with that. There was much pushing and shoving.

Despite that, the show was a lot of fun, and my nights of hanging out with old friends from back home and wandering around NYC brought back a lot of fond memories that I'm glad I can now insert my wonderful wife into.

And then my visit to Edwin Booth's Players Club, with a guided tour of everything from the bathrooms to Booth's bedroom was... amazing, to say the least.

Me being me, I took like eight pictures. Christina took another eight, and here's the best few.
