Let me say something quickly before I begin, sometimes I really have to remind myself that this blog is a hobby – one that I love – but a hobby none the less. So, you’ll forgive me if I don’t want to come onto my site and have an argument that goes in circles. I blogged about how the Red Hulk comic doesn’t sell like it should and it turned into a back and forth with someone who couldn’t get over a simple fact. But here’s the thing – and here’s a note to everyone out there – this is supposed to be fun – those arguments aren’t fun, they are just plain annoying. So if you want to come to argue, don’t. For two reasons – #1) I can and will delete or edit your posts – without giving it a second thought. #2) I don’t care enough to let your opinions be heard. Sorry if that sounds harsh – but I didn’t create this site and put all the time and effort into making it a fun and informative resource just for people to come here and spout off. If you are really that intent on making a point – start your own blog and go at it. It’s easy enough to do – I’ll even help you.
Now that’s not to say you can’t say something if you don’t agree with me – if you want to state something and it conflicts with my views – go for it. Just be respectful. Consider it like coming into someone’s house. Just have enough class not to come in and insult the host. I know people have had a problem with Logan’s posts sometimes – but if you go back and look at his comments you’d see he doesn’t get personal – he has a definite opinion on things – but he makes his point and doesn’t call people fan boys or any other names. Great – you can keep on posting. But if you come on here and call me a fan boy and treat me as such you can sure you won’t last long posting. It’s no skin off my nose if you don’t come back. Believe it or not – I don’t do this site for the traffic. I could care less if people come here to check out the collection – but they do and I like talking to most of them. But I am not so dependant on comments that I will just anyone come on here to say whatever they want.
Sorry about the long rant – this is supposed to be about the Boston Comic Con. Yes, I went – yes, I had a blast – and yes I have a ton more art to show off. I am thinking I need to start off with saying I was looking/hoping for a McGuinness sketch – a Trimpe sketch and to re-create a couple of covers with some affordable artists. Did I get everything I was hoping for?
I can’t tell you yet – as that may ruin the surprise. I will say this… I had a hard time locating McG’s table – and when I did he wasn’t even there. The guy there said that he wasn’t sure when McG was going to be there – and he wasn’t sure if he’d be sketching. It’s all up to how he feels that day. He did give me a ticket and said they would be lining up and calling out the numbers so that people didn’t have to just wait there. I love that method – anyone who tries to make your con experience better by not having you have to wait in line is TOPS in my book. McG was off to a great start! So I made my way over to Katie Cook’s table where I saw this:
I love her style – these are very small, quick little pieces – but I told her I would need a grey Hulk to go along with it – so she happily obliged with this:
I was off to what I considered a great start! I needed to find Trimpe’s table though – as last time he was at the BCC he had a considerable line! Come on back tomorrow (if you want) as the story gets better (with no rant in the beginning) with a whole lot more art to show!
