About

I live in New York City and I'm surrounded by books all day and when I go home I have more books waiting for me. Read my "About" page on top to see what I mean. I just want to share my book experiences and my love of all-things-books, with hopefully the occasional review thrown in. If you wish to contact me, the address is polishoutlanderATgmailDOTcom

New York Comic Con 2010

Oh how excited I was to go to NYCC this year! This was my third one that I’ve been to. The first time I went in 2008, I was quite overwhelmed because I had only just, just, started to read comics and graphic novels. Last year, I sort of new what I was doing by going there. And last year is what did it for Josh: he really started to get into the Marvel world, along with some other stuff. This year, the two of us went as fans together. We went on Saturday and Sunday.

That Friday night though, I went with my friend Jessica to see Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers LIVE! We went last year to see the first movie, and we were just as excited to go this year. And what better weekend then during NYCC weekend? As opposed to last year, there was definitely less clapping. Thank goodness! And if there was, it mostly for the musicians this time around. Although, people still clapped when Legolas surfed down the steps, when Arwen first showed up on screen, when the elves arrived at Helms Deep…. They haven’t announced the date for the Return of the King show, but I am hoping it will coincide with NYCC again.

And now moving on to NYCC! One word: overwhelming! I had never experienced such a crowd of people. I thought BEA was bad, but this …this definitely had far more people.

Take a picture with Captain America’s shield. I think Josh was too shy to do so.

This is the sketch that I had requested from Terry Moore. It’s Francine, from Strangers in Paradise, as Xena. He did an issue where the characters were in their own Xena storyline. The sketch combines two of my favorite things: Xena and SiP.
