As any of you that follow the Facebook fan page know by now, I had a run in with fate at WonderCon today and was able to get this photo:
This photo completely made my day. We saw him walk passed our table, and I knew I couldn’t let the opportunity pass. I shouted out (for the first and possibly only time in my life):
The runt teenager turned to me with his entire upper half in response and I said to him, “I have to get a photo with you!”
He was fine with the notion, as I’m sure he’d been getting requests all day, so I handed the camera to my wife and she got this premonition of a photo–this culmination of God’s will embedded onto the CCD sensor of my Sony a200. My day had officially been made, and I had to share it with all of you.
As many of you know by now, I am attending WonderCon today through Sunday. No, this isn’t Marine Corps humor, but it is funny.
I’ve mentioned WonderCon a number of times, but people still seem to be fairly lost about it. Here’s the details:
WonderCon is a comic book convention in San Francisco. It is basically the same thing as San Diego’s ComicCon, but it is in San Francisco. It is being held at the Moscone Center in downtown San Francisco, today (Friday) until Sunday. It costs money to enter, I don’t know what the ticket prices are but I don’t think it’s that much.
I will be there all three days, and I will be updating my Twitter and the Facebook Fan Page regularly at the event. You’ll be able to find me at the Concord Veteran’s Center booth. I’ll be the guy in the Terminal Lance shirt, much like you see in today’s comic.
Maybe, if we’re lucky, Batman will join us as well.
