the dynamite view from the hotel room:
I had Neil sign his badge, which will end up raising a proper charity some dough:
SuperKate, Amanda's right hand woman, was down to give me her SuperBackUp and boy did I need her. Getting Neil through the crowds on the fly was really scary at times, people there seemed determined to catch up with him, at a dead run if necessary, holding out their pen to have him sign things-- it was pretty astounding to witness.
Supes got me this Batman and Robin con bag that i so DEARLY wished for---LOVE HER!
I barely got on the floor the whole time, but i did see these lil' ghosties:
Ted! (& Selina Kyle, of course)
Neil had some press rounds, the Sandman-themed conversations were fascinating. I met many fabulous reporters from the front lines: Seth, Matt, Patrick and Susan-- I will search down their coverage and link to later-
that is JH. Williams III in the vest in the back, what an artist-- can't wait to see the new Sandman issues.
Cons are great for catching up with people you wouldn't normally see, here are two favorites, Jim Lee & Shelly Bond-
these crazy kids who I met at the Denver signing, came all the way to SD to see Boss's panel!
and twice Boss introduced me to people I really really wanted to meet, one is John Romita Jr., one cool NY cat-
and hello...George RR Martin...maker of Jon Snow...
Neil kindly signed loads of David Mack prints for me, stand by while I add them in to the shop.
I just saw him tweet that he is going underground with his lady love, so I am going to cut this short and see if he needs anything before he digs in...
stand by for part two, SO many more photos...
