I'm not going to say "and what do you KNOW artists but her nipples weren't BURROWING through leather" but I won't. I won't say it.

The Planet Replica judges were the bees knees - I managed to get a pic of them squaring off against the cardboard ones. Who were living gods.

Oh they where.... ;-)

Sold a lot of copies of my comic No More Heroes (*cough* check link for ordering details *cough*). At one point a very nice American couple came over to the stall to take a look. I gave them the pitch and the guy liked the sound of it so much he bought every issue. After they left the guy at the next stall turned to me and said, "That was Mark Waid."

Yeah, I unknowingly sold my wee comic to one of the biggest names in the business. I even offered to sign it for him.  :-[

I think this is my favourite Con story of all time lol

So WHO is Mark Waid?

Finally got around to taking photos of some of my haul. Very pleased with the stuff I got at Thought Bubble. My pride and joy a Dante page (wayhey so chuffed, is over at the Original Art Thread) here's a few of the signatures I'm particularly happy with.





This isn't fuzzy in real life... I think...



Likewise.

Alas everything I got has to be held in perspective when compared to the mighty Chief.

We had a chat there about the delights and dangers of pre-ordering stuff. Chief does a Con right!

Great bumping into you at the viewing dodsy, . . . we passed the time away in chat about all things Dredd until the film started. I also met Marco at the end of the film (which was awesome by the way) dressed in an amazing cosplay outfit as a nuclear Sherlock homes :-)

My con highlight was meeting Integra a.k.a Judge Anderson and getting some nice pic's of her cracking heads in her Judge outfit. Also met David Lloyd and got a fantastic Guy Fawkes sketch from him (a fantastic end to the best Thought Bubble Convention yet).

To put this politely as possible, which one were you? lol. I was sat with the wife on the left side of the screen when there were only 3 loads of people in really early.

I was the hansome bald headed bloke  ;) directly across to your right.

Still cringing at this. Might as well have gone up to Charlie Adlard and offered to show him how to draw zombies.
