NYCC (New York Comic Con for those who aren’t fluent in Geek) was last weekend. I’ve had non-stop people staying here at my apartment for the past 3 weeks and I have one more coming this week. I love having guests. But NYCC is an intense weekend–and for those not prepared for it, it can be rough. Luckily, my brother and his good friend Adam knew full well what to expect and I think from their text messages that were ALL IN CAPITALS ALL WEEKEND LONG, that they had a great time.
That being said, we’ve all caught what I like to call the Comic Con Cold. It’s this nasty bug that Sean, me and all of our friends contract every year right after NYCC. So many people. So few of whom have showered. So many germs and mouth breathers and people touching and brushing against each other–it’s like a petri dish of germs in the Javits Center that weekend. And so–we’re all getting over our colds after a good two days of hacking up phlegm. FUN TIMES!
All in all, NYCC was fun. I’m beginning to get to know Sean’s fans and even remember names and faces (and colleagues) from years before (Hi Alex! Hi Dan! Hi George! Hi Trip! Hi Guy Who Toured with the Glenn Miller Band Whose Name I Can’t Remember!). And I have to admit, though I might be slightly biased, I think the people who like Sean’s work tend to be a pretty rad bunch. They’re the more edgy and thoughtful readers in my experience at least.
That being said, I’m gonna go slug down some Nyquil and get a good night’s sleep before my crazy weekend of photo shoots! Seriously, it’s a busy one.
