    wait, why are we queuing/cuing allan??

    Personally, I don't WANT Puck blowing kisses at me... for a hero, he's good. for a romantic interest, he's creepy... Tho I'll admit, having Puck blow kisses at men would be... well, no, I was right the first time: creepy!!

    That brings a WHOLE new level to the 'creepy old man' genre

    EDIT: Yeah, Sylvie JUST told me the OTHER meaning of 'queue' in French in greater detail... ... But since it was BEN who said it to me, I MIGHT just take the chance :P

    Yeah, I SO misread that... (amasing what you read when you glance over two VERY specific words...)

    The cue was as a follow up to your Puck dressed in Zuzha garb pic...and for the record, I don't want anything to do with Allan queueing anything.

    bang goes the PG rating for sure now...anyhooo!

    I'd have liked to have gone to con this year, but with my other con obligation I only have room on me plate for one con a year...the other one takes a load of me time to get organized and stuff.

    I expect piccies from those who are going though!

    her royal highness has spoken. =p
    Hell was full, so I came back.

    Well, now! I just got back from the Wizard World con in Philly. Boy, did I score. I picked up a beautiful Vindicator Bust for $42 which is now proudly watching guard over my computer monitor. I also picked up a bunch of Alpha Flight-related comics (guest appearances), got an autograph from Battlestar Galactica's Tricia Helfer, got a toy for my nephew, a manga comic for my g/f, met Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), met Donovan from "V" (Marc Singer), accidentally met a porno star (?!?!) while trying to buy a glossy photo of Tricia Helfer, and of course, the brass ring, met Clayton Henry.

    When I got there at 2pm, his booth was unmanned and the guy next to his booth said he was a no-show. So I was like, totally bummed. About 15 min before they closed the floor, I said to myself, "rplass, go check, maybe he's there anyway..." So I did and I met him! I really wanted him to make a me little custom sketch, but he was in the middle of doing a custom sketch for someone else... I thought maybe I was out of luck, but I explained that I drove all the way down from NYC to meet him and that I had purchased quite a bit of comic art of his from Kwan, so he agreed to stop what he was doing and do a quick head shot of Zuzha for me to thank me for the purchase. Wow, that was really nice of him. He told me that he loves drawing Zuzha, but didn't like the way that the character was written by Lobdell. I didn't ask him what he meant by that because it was sort of a negative vibe, so I just left it at that. I confirmed with him that she is supposed to be half-Asian, and he confessed that it's difficult [for him?] to draw Asian characters. He had some other comic art for sale, which I was extremely tempted to pick up, but I didn't have the cash on me at the time.

    I saw some other comic art for sale at some other guy's booth - the Byrne cover for Alpha Flight #28 which was up for $2500 and the most amazing Marvel Age #2 cover art, also by Byrne, a piece that technically pre-dates Alpha Flight #1, but the guy wanted $12,000 for it. fooFooFOO!!! That's a lot of lettuce.

    Here is a scan of what he drew for me:

    Great pic Clayton drew for you.

    Funny, why does Quesada love She-Hulk so much!??! Three times he's given that character a new series in 18 months. Runaways gets a second chance, Power Pack gets another mini, Moon Knight gets another shot, as does Ghost Rider and New Warriors, although I doubt Warriors will sell much and will not get a full-run series.

    Time we got back at Marvel and get Alpha Flight back on board!!

    Go for it people, time's a wasting!
    Keep your stick on the ice.

    I went to the Wizard show on Friday, 6/3 and must've missed him as the spot he was supposed to be at wasn't manned. I went and drowned my sorrows in a couple of beers at the Independence brew pub down the street while avoiding all the costumed people walking around. I went back up to the artists section one last time with the same result. Day almost wasted saved only by the kick ass porter the brew pub had on draught.


    Next time Henry does an appearance and it's near me I'll show up.
