This past weekend was Boston Comic Con. And boy do my wallet and my feet remember it fondly. I was lucky enough to have access to a camera for some of it, so on Friday I should have some pictures of my adventure up. For now, I thought I would give you a taste of what I found Instagram worthy.
This is the poster I did not buy, but absolutely should have. It is snarky and has Joss Whedon on it. Why it isn’t hanging in my apartment already is sad and inexplicable. However, I will hang it here for your viewing pleasure.
This came from a series in which a bunch of your major heroes were presented in their childhood. Needless to say, it was adorable. Gabriel picked up this print of Diana, known to many as Wonder Woman, reading casually with wooden sword at the ready.
With a title like Kill Shakespeare, what is an English major to do? I picked this up at one of the tables and got it signed by one of the creators. It is pretty freaking fantastic and you should hit up your friendly neighborhood comic book store to get yourself a copy. It is part of a series that is about to put out its fourth book. The art is incredible and the story combines a ton of Shakespearean characters together and allows them all to meet and hang out and fight and fall in love across existing story lines. It is seriously cool whether you are into Shakespeare or not.
And finally, the lovely Laura and I taking a picture of our long overdue reunion. Comic Con has a way of bringing people together and I saw people from high school, college, and grad school as well as made some new friends along the way. It was a blast and I can’t wait to go back next year. And next year, I promise to cosplay. Most likely in something requiring one hell of a corset. Hope you are surviving the week!
