Tina’s Groove and Comic Con 2014

To say the least, Comic Con 2014 was incredible. I won’t bore you with the finer details of what was worn, who made an appearance, and how many attendees camped on the boardwalk along the San Diego bayfront just to get in line early the next day —no, I’m sure you’ve already gotten those stats and highlights from newsy sites.

Picture-taking is not something I do a lot of, but I did manage to take these snapshots of my trip. If you want pics of my appearances at the con, please visit the Comics Kingdom Blog here.

I wish to thank everyone who came to my spotlight — thank you, thank you, and — you there it the back— thank you. Seriously, all joking aside, I had a pretty good turnout— more than I expected. Thanks to all of you present for laughing at the right moments, and for making the experience a memorable one for me. (Some of you brought me expensive gifts and offered to wash my feet— thank you, but that was not necessary, really:))

Also, I discovered that I have special powers. I was able to pull some strings and get the Comic-Con staff to TURN DOWN THE AIR CONDITIONING in the presentation room. My Klout score skyrocketed. Soon I’ll be able to do that in restaurants. Maybe even the actual weather outside, we shall have to see.

How can you tell I still haven’t come down yet from the Comic-Con height, I mean high.

Thanks, San Diego Comic Con! I had a blast!

Tomorrow, I’ll be posting my “Centipede Story” here. What’s a Centipede Story? Nothing to do with Comic Con 2014 (except, perhaps, for one weird bug incident ). Visit tomorrow and you’ll see!

From my graphic short story The Power Of Centipedes... stay tuned tomorrow.
