Have I ever mentioned to you readers that I am a major comic book geek? If I haven’t then let me put that on the table right now. I was a big time collector of the medium for many, many years and only recently cut back on the stuff based on space and financials being needed for other things in life.
Anyway, that being said I am super excited about my being a member of the attending press for the 2010 NY Comic Con and Anime Festival which will be held at the Jacob Javits Center over the next few days. You might be surprised at my saying that this is the first year that I have ever attempted such a feat as a professional and while I agree that I should have been doing this for years already; I just never got around to setting the whole thing up. My plan is to cover this event as extensively as possible and that means lots of photographs and lots of narrative views. The Javits Center is a huge space and I have heard many stories from media colleagues and friends who attended in the recent past about this being a crushing amount of humanity to contend with. I will be going on all of the days and starting with my semi-private voyage of the Press Time so wish me luck.
