A Day at the local Comic Con 2: Books, Babes, and Bad-@ss Cosplay

This is the second year my family and I attended our local comic book convention. The top creators there were Joe Sinnott, Tom Raney, and Rodney Ramos. We decided to cosplay for the first time and we really had a great day taking many photos and being asked to be in a lot of them. I went as Rorschach and my daughters went as Raven & Dark Phoenix. We also picked up some art and met some cool people as well.

We mean business!

You may hear sometimes that artists don't really like doing sketches or that the prices they charge can be high and in no small part because people will get them done and have them up on Ebay the next day, or that they just might not be all that friendly to the fans. I say this because Tom Raney was nothing but a down to earth cool person who actually did a wonderful Logan sketch for me completely free. This will be framed, hung on my wall, and will always be appreciated.

Thanks Tom!
